Myanmar hockey wins FIH prize for Olympic Day project


23 Aug 2017
Lausanne, Switzerland, August 23, 2017: The International Hockey Federation (FIH) has awarded prizes to two National Associations from more than 50 participants for Olympic Day 2017 activities. The project by the Uruguay Hockey Federation was chosen as the best one this year by an FIH Panel, with the Myanmar Hockey Federation picking up the second best activity award. 

Uruguay will receive development support from FIH for the sum of 2,000 CHF, whilst Myanmar will receive 1,000 CHF for development purposes. Myanmar organised a number of exciting activities, including several Hockey 5s tournaments for people of all ages. Like in Uruguay, and with the support of their national teams, club players and numerous coaches, the project exposed the sport to many different communities.

The impact was enhanced by organised media opportunities around these activities which spread awareness about hockey to a much wider audience. Another important component of Myanmar’s activity was to engage with key funding partners, including government officials, which will be vital for the future development of hockey in the country.

Speaking about this year’s Olympic Day awards, FIH Director of Sport and Development David Luckes said: "Uruguay and Myanmar undertook outstanding projects that had a big impact on the sport and local communities within their country, building relationships which will undoubtedly help hockey develop in the future."

More than 50 countries undertook Olympic Day hockey activity this year including Afghanistan, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, China, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Japan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Macau, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Tajikistan, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, Uzbekistan and Vietnam.
