Sandeep Singh of India waves the Indian national flag with teammates after winning the men's field hockey finals match between India and France of the FIH London 2012 Olympic Hockey qualifying tournament at the Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium in New Delhi on February 26

NEW DELHI: Monetary rewards continued to trickle down for the Indian men’s hockey team as Sahara India Pariwar announced a cash incentive of Rs 1.12 crore for the players and support staffs of the side that emerged winners in the just-concluded London Olympic qualifiers.
India trounced France 8-1 in the final to seal a place in the upcoming London Olympics after having missed the Beijing Games four years ago. And it prompted Sahara, the official sponsor of the national game, to reward the players and team officials for their feat.
While mid-fielder Sardar Singh, who won the player of the tournament award, and ace drag flicker Sandeep Singh, who scored five goals including a hat-trick in the final, will be given a sum of Rs 11 lakh each, the rest of the team members will receive an amount of Rs 5 lakh each, Sahara said in a statement.
The support staff will also get an incentive of Rs 1 lakh each, the release stated.
“We are very proud that India performed so well in this tournament. Hockey is our national game and we are proud of being associated with it,” said Managing Worker and Chairman of Sahara India Pariwar, Subrata Roy.
