Indian athletes who won the most Olympic medals: Preparations are going on all over the world these days for the Paris Olympics 2024, in which more than 120 athletes from India are going to present their claim. This time there are high hopes of medals from Neeraj Chopra to PV Sindhu and the pair of Chirag Shetty-Satwiksairaj Reddy. But the history of the Olympic Games is more than a century old and even before gaining independence in 1947, India had won many medals. Do you know which Indian athlete has won the most Olympic medals?

Udham Singh won 4 medals (field hockey)

Field hockey entered the Olympic Games in 1908. But the athlete who has won the most medals in the Olympics from India is Udham Singh, who won a total of 4 medals in the Olympics, including 3 gold and one silver medal. Udham Singh used to play at the center forward position for the Indian hockey team and he won his first Olympic medal in 1952. After that India continued its golden journey in 1956, but in 1960 India had to be satisfied with the silver medal. Udham Singh had won 3 medals in 3 consecutive Olympics. Udham Singh last played for the Indian team in the Olympics in 1964 and this time he made a significant contribution in helping his team win the gold medal. Even today, after 60 years, no one has been able to leave Udham Singh behind in this matter.

An athlete won 4 medals even during the British Raj

Let us tell you that before 1947, when India and Pakistan were not separated, athletes used to represent the British Empire in the Olympics. Since South Asian countries dominated field hockey, at that time the British, Indians and today's Pakistanis also used to play from the same team. Apart from Udham Singh, Leslie Claudius was also associated with field hockey. While representing the British Empire in India, he won a total of 4 medals, which included 3 gold and one silver medal. Claudius won these 4 medals between 1948 and 1960.
