Yogeshwar Dutt- Chief Guest BOSM 2018

 A man not enslaved by his circumstances  

Yogeshwar Dutt

Born on November 2, 1982, Dutt won the bronze medal at the 2012 London Olympics in the Men's 60kg Freestyle wrestling, gold medal in two successive Commonwealth Games, gold medal in Asian games and several Gold medals in international championships. He was conferred the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award in 2012 and Padam Shri Award in 2013.  

With his win in the London Olympics, Yogeshwar became the third Indian wrestler to bag an Olympic medal. Yogeshwar's performance at the London Olympic was also special because just two years ago during Commonwealth Games 2010 in Delhi Yogeshwar had gone through a knee injury (career-threatening) in the final match. Even after suffering an injury he won the match and gold medal in the 60 kg category. Due to his injury, he had stayed out of the game for a long time but when he made his comeback he did that in style.

A talk by Mr. Dutt was organized in the BITS Auditorium after the inauguration of the sports fest ‘BOSM’.
