The Pakistan Army takes a leading part in games and sports. It is justly proud of its major contribution towards raising the country’s athletic standards. Pakistan’s impressive progress since its entry into national and international events is due mainly to the efforts of the army.
All the Army’s best players and athletes were first discovered and later attained their high standard in these meets; thanks largely to the interest taken in them by the Army Sports Control Board under Brigadier C.H.B. Rodham. Sports in the Army owes a great deal to this officer.
