There are number of officers from NDA who have remarkable achievements in sports. During NDA training candidate learn many indoor as well outdoor games. The purpose of indoor game is to made cadet mentally fit and for outdoor game physically fit.

Ram Singh Yadav is the only second marathon runner to have made a place in the Olympics from India. He reached the Olympics qualification mark in Mumbai Marathon and was selected in 2012 London Olympics on the basis of it. His best is still left to be achieved.

Conclusion

NDA provides a great opportunity that one can pursue a career in sports after the NDA training if he has exceptional talent. The chances to achieve greater heights at an individual level are more than in a group.

The frequent posting around the country hinders the team practice for the army personnel. However, if any of the cadets show exceptional qualities in any of the sport, NDA surely helps him/her to groom by giving all the world-class facilities and training. Simultaneously NDA also pay to the candidate during training period also.
