Talimeren Ao, was born on 28th January 1919 at Changki Village and received his early education from an American Missionary School at Impur, completed his schooling from Christian High School, Jorhat, joined Cotton College, Guwahati in 1942, for his intermediate science and completed MBBS from the then R.G.

In the State of Nagaland a parallel championship was initiated under the aegis of the inter-district Football Championship. Under the initiative of Hon’ble Chief Minister, Shri. Neiphiu Rio in 2004, the inter-disterict football championship was renamed to Dr. T. Ao Football Championship. It has stopped for a few years and revived in 2019 January as a yearly event sponsored by the State Government through the Youth Resources and Sports Department.
The Dr. T. Ao Tournaments has proved to be a great encouragement not only to the young Nagas who loves sports and take pride in following the Legendary example of Dr. T. Ao but to all the Football enthusiasts in the North East and it is hoped that through these Tournaments many more young Dr. T. Ao’s will be produced.
