India’s best-performing athletes were conferred with the national sports awards by President Droupadi Murmu on January 9 in a regal ceremony at the Rashtrapati Bhawan in New Delhi.

Major Dhyan Chand Khel Ratna winners Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty couldn’t be present at the grand ceremony due to their participation in the ongoing Malaysian Open in Kuala Lumpur.

The build-up to the National Sports Awards was controversial much like every other thing in Indian sports.

India's number one compound archer Jyothi Surekha Vennam moved to Andhra Pradesh High Court and filed a writ petition questioning her snub for the Khel Ratna award despite her exception performance in past few years and at the Asian Games 2022.
