Major Dhyan Chand, known as the Wizard of Hockey, is considered as the greatest field hockey players in the history of the sport. He is known for his extraordinary goal-scoring feats, in addition to earning three Olympic gold medals (1928, 1932, and 1936) in field hockey. He is one of the decorated sportsmen in India having received a Padma Bhushan. However, one of his lesser known achievements is that the legend was also honoured by Austrian citizens in Vienna, where they made a statue of him with 4 hands and 4 sticks to depict his magnificent skill and control with the ball.
