    Rio Olympic medallists winners to be considered for Khel Ratna, Arjuna

The medal winners in individual events who have already not been conferred with Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna in the past will be considered for the highest sporting honour.

In a bid to ensure that Olympic medallists get immediate recognition, the Sports Ministry said medal winners from the upcoming Rio Games will be considered for this year's Khel Ratna and Arjuna Awards.

The ministry said the decision has been taken so that athletes need not wait for one full year after their medal-winning performances at the Olympic Games.

"Medal winners in team events, who have played stellar roles in the medal won by the team for the country in Rio Olympics 2016 such as number of goals scored, number of goals saved etc., and who have already not been conferred with Arjuna Award in the past will be considered for Arjuna Awards," the Ministry said.

As per the existing provisions of the schemes of Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna and Arjuna Awards, sports achievements of the sportspersons for the last four years preceding the year of award, i.e., sports achievements during the period 2011 to 2015 are to be considered.
