Olympian Galibardy passes away

Chennai: Joseph (Joe) Galibardy, the oldest living Olympic hockey player who had donned the India colours at the 1936 Berlin Olympics in 1936, passed away on Tuesday in Walthamstow (England). He was 96.

The eldest of four children, Joseph DeVille Thomas Galibardy was born on January 10, 1915 in Calcutta. He was good both in soccer and field hockey, but won his spurs in field hockey for Bengal-Nagpur Railways (BNR).

He blossomed into a left-half of outstanding merit and formed an awesome combination in setting up penalty corners for the great full-back Carl Tapsell.

Galibardy figured in all matches for India at the Berlin Olympics. The Indian team won the gold with a thumping 8-1 victory over Germany. — Hockey Correspondent
