Diu, Jan 13, 2024: The Beach Games 2024, the first multi-sports beach games in India, was held at the pristine blue flag certified Ghoghla Beach in Diu.

The event concluded with Madhya Pradesh emerging as the overall champion, winning a total of 18 medals, including 7 golds.

This not only showcased the sporting prowess of Madhya Pradesh but also highlighted the talent within the state.

Maharashtra won 14 medals, including 3 golds, while Tamil Nadu, Uttarakhand, and hosts Dadra, Nagar Haveli, Diu & Daman secured 12 medals each.

Assam won 8 medals, with 5 of them being gold. In a thrilling turn of events, Lakshadweep won the gold medal in Beach Soccer, defeating Maharashtra 5-4 in the final.

This victory added to the diversity of medal winners and emphasized the inclusive and nationwide impact of the Diu Beach Games 2024.

From January 4-11, 1404 athletes under the age of 21, from 28 states and Union Territories, participated in a diverse range of disciplines.

The games were structured into two sessions each day, optimizing the athletes' performances and providing an engaging viewing experience for the audience.

The event featured various sports, including Tug of War, Sea Swimming, Pencak Silat, Mallakhamb, Beach Volleyball, Beach Kabaddi, Beach Soccer, and the debut of Beach Boxing. The addition of Beach Boxing brought extra excitement to the event.

Anurag Thakur, the Union Minister for Youth Affairs & Sports, expressed his support and enthusiasm for the event on X (formerly Twitter).

He praised the energy of the athletes and the beauty of Diu, stating that the vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to bring new life to the beaches of India has taken a sporting turn with the organization of the first-ever Beach Games in Diu.

India has many beautiful beaches, with 12 of them having Blue Flag certification for cleanliness and sustainable tourism. However, many of the country's beaches remain unexplored. The successful hosting of the Diu Beach Games is therefore encouraging news.
