Center forward of the Indian hockey team that won gold at London, Melbourne and Helsinki.
At London, he played only two matches but scored 8 of the 13 goals, including a hat trick and the first 2 of 4 in the final against Great Britain.
At Helsinki he scored 9 of the 13 goals, including all 3 in the semifinal against Great Britain (a hat trick) and 5 of the 6 in the final against Holland (and his third Olympic hat trick). Eight of the nine goals, that is 88.88 percent of the total score of a team, in the semifinal and final, by a particular player is probably a World Record.
At Melbourne, he was captain of the team. He had scored 5 goals in the first half of the opening match against Afghanistan, when in the beginning of the second half he got his right hand ring finger badly fractured. Substitution was not allowed in those days. His injury was kept a well guarded secret. He did not play the remaining pool matches (Randhir Singh Gentle deputising as captain) and was brought in for the semifinal and final simply to sell dummy to the opponents, as he was considered to be the most dangerous centre forward of the post war era. The team authorities thought that opposing defenders would concentrate on him, and it would make things easier for the other attackers. The ruse worked. Independent India won the third consecutive gold under his captaincy. Consequently he captioned his autobiography, "The Golden Hat Trick".
He later became chief coach and manager for the Indian hockey team, and won another gold at the World Cup in Kuala Lumpur in 1975.
As a Sikh, he suffered from the partition of India in 1948. He was twice Indian champion with a then still unified Punjabi team in 1946 and '47, but after independance, Punjab and its hockey team were split between Pakistan and India. He helped a (half) Punjabi team again to Indian championships in 1949, '50 and '51, and again in 1954.
(*) There have been a number of "Balbirs" in Indian hockey. Four participated in the Olympic Games, three of them together in the Mexico Olympics in 1968. In India they have been distinguished by the departments they served, like "Balbir Police", "Balbir Railways" and "Balbir Services". Since then, the elder Balbir is known as Balbir Senior.
He is on the internet (BalbirSenior@hotmail.com) and was the first sportsman to contact me at this site. He is very honoured at being remembered.

I have every difficulty in believing this is one and the same athlete. Under 62 kg in 1972, he competed in -82 kg at the 1974 Asian Games and as a Middleweight at the Commonwealth Games also in 1974. From there to the -100 kg in 1980 is possible, of course, but the first weight gain seems strange. Nevertheless, all sources indicate this is indeed just the one person.
