A 43 feet tall hockey stick developed and fabricated from automobile scraps by students of the Industrial Training Institute (ITI), Berhampur, has found its place in the Asia Book of Records. The tall hockey stick was fabricated to celebrate the FIH World Cup Hockey Championship which ended on Sunday in Rourkela and Bhubaneswar, Odisha. It has been installed at the Scrap Park in Berhampur. 

ITI Berhampur Principal Dr. Rajat Kumar Panigrahy said, “this will motivate young students to play India’s national game, hockey. Their motto should be: ‘Skilled in Odisha, Go Global’. We are proud of our trainees who used three tonnes of scrap to make the hockey sticks, under the Waste to Wealth programme.”
