Savita was adjudged the Sportswoman of the 12 months (Crew Sports activities) on the 2022 Sportstar Aces Awards on the Taj Mahal Lodge in Mumbai on Saturday.
Savita has been there between the sticks for fairly a while now, incomes over 200 caps by the final decade. Very like the Indian group, she had a depressing begin in Tokyo, conceding 11 objectives within the opening three video games. However because the group rebounded, so did Savita, recording two again to again clear sheets towards Eire and World No. 2 Australia, within the quarters.
The resoluteness that Savita displayed was exceptional and for her fantastic show, she was to achieve the coveted Goalkeeper of the 12 months award by the Worldwide Hockey Federation (FIH).
Legendary India cricketer Sunil Gavaskar, former India hockey captain M. M. Somaya, chess nice Viswanathan Anand, former India soccer skipper Bhaichung Bhutia and Olympians Anjali Bhagwat and Aparna Popat are the members of the Sportstar Aces 2022 jury.
