Posted by Ramesh Khati on September 17, 2009

Shillong, Sept 16 (ANI): Three girls from Meghalaya have been selected for the upcoming 9thAsian Karate Championship to be held in China from September 25 to 27.

Linza Fenny Syiem, Annie Dahun Warjiri and Basuk are elated to represent their state and country in China.

The girls said they have all the required skills and strength required in the sport and such international exposures will help them gain experience and boost their confidence.

“What we need is more exposure in the international arena so that we can also have more chance of winning in these international tournaments,” said Syiem.

The girls who have been practising for years say they are confident of bringing laurels and medals.

“It’s a great honour to be selected to represent India for the first time. I hope that we will be able to do well,” said Warjiri.

However, the trio expressed their dissatisfaction with the available poor infrastructure and said more needed to be done in order to promote the sport in the state. (ANI)
