July 09, 2004 20:29 IST

Members of the national hockey team, leaving tonight for Germany for the final phase of their pre-Olympics preparations, have been presented with cash awards for the side's twin title wins last year.

The players, who were part of the team that won the Afro-Asian Games in Hyderabad, were given Rs one lakh each by Indian Hockey Federation president K P S Gill on Friday.

Similarly, Rs 50,000 was given to each player of the side that lifted the four-nation Hamburg Masters tournament in Germany, an IHF release said in Delhi.
