 India first sent its official contingent of 6 athletes at the 1920 Antwerp Olympics. Eminent businessman Dorabji Tata who was president of Deccan Gymkhana is credited to take the initiative to form an ‘Indian Olympic Association’ to pick and train athletes who could participate in the 1920 Olympics.

Dorabji Tata approached then-Bombay governor George Lloyd, who helped secure permission for India for the play. The Olympic trials were then held at Deccan Gymkhana ground in April 1920 which is a great honor for all of us.
