Tokyo Olympics contingent felicitated by NOCSLThe 9-member Sri Lankan contingent to the Tokyo Olympics has nothing to lose, but does have a great opportunity to make a national contribution to place the country in a top position. This was disclosed by sprint Queen Susanthika Jayasinghe, the 2000 Sydney Olympic medalist, at a media briefing held at the ‘Olympic House’ to felicitate the athletes participating at the Tokyo Olympics, and to introduce the sponsors of ‘Team Sri Lanka’ at this Games. yesterday.

“Once we are in the middle of the field, facing the competition fearlessly will be the biggest asset to victory,” said Jayasinghe.

Susanthika Jayasinghe who was present at the event as an invitee said that the athletes have to take advantage of the facilities that were not available during her hey-day, and to give their best for the country. A total of nine athletes have qualified for this year’s event.

“How many obstacles I had to face when I won an Olympic medal that day? Today’s children are blessed and well looked after. The Olympic Committee and the Ministry of Sports are there to strengthen the athletes economically, whereas during my time it was the other way around. Sometimes I had to face various issues from the officials too. But we persevered and still went on to achieve the goal with clear determination. That’s why I was able to win medals. Our athletes will have to compete among the best in the world when they go to Tokyo. They have to inculcate something unique if they are to become champions in those regions. Our guys are not in that situation. Hence, I would say that we have nothing to lose at the Tokyo Games. All our athletes need to do is show sheer commitment and give their maximum effort,” said Susanthika.

Addressing the gathering NOCSL President Suresh Subramaniam said that a large number of sponsors have joined hands with them to boost this year’s Tokyo Olympics contingent. The National Olympic Committee would not hesitate to respectfully recall the support of sponsors on their journey to the Tokyo Olympics. Brandix and Hirdaramani as partners, MAS and Sunshine Holdings as affiliate partners, National Television Rupavahini and Channel Eye as official broadcast partners, Events Tree as the official marketing partner, Daraz as the official digital partner, Swarnavahini Media Network as Official Electronic Media Partner, Richardson as Official Outdoor Media Partner and P.G. Martin Institute who have also joined that list.

“It’s a pleasure to have so many sponsors join the National Olympic Committee from a mere text message sent using the phone without even writing a letter. They joined us not for commercial publicity. The importance here is that they came together as a national interest. It is because of our sponsors that the Olympic athletes get to Tokyo without extra pressure and burden.

We were appointed to the Olympic Committee in 2018 and all officials, including our Secretary General Maxwell de Silva, have given their utmost commitment to this success story. The Olympic Committee is in a very good position in terms of money management without relying on any other local sports bodies,” said Subramaniam.
