Roman Sana playing Olympics directly
Other disciplines could do well with proper planning: Syed Shahed Reza
The people of Bangladesh got good news only few days ago when ace archer Roman Sana as the second Bangladeshi confirmed direct ticket to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games securing the semi-finals of recurve division of the World Archery Championship.
The athletes in red and green jerseys used to play the world top sporting event getting wild card. Until golfer Siddikur Rahman get chance to play the Rio Olympic directly, it was a matter of regret for Bangladesh sports fans that the local athletes were not able to play the Olympic Games directly.
Bangladesh Archery Federation (BAF) which is working on a five-year plan with the local archers is hopeful that more archers may secure spot in Olympic Games in the discipline in future.
In this regard, a discussion was held on Sunday. There, Secretary General of Bangladesh Olympic Association (BOA) Syed Shahed Reza said that getting chance to play the Olympic Games directly is great news for the people of the country. The entire nation is happy to hear such good news.
But the sports personality of the country believes that the other disciplines may do well too. He said, "Golfer Siddikur Rahman and now Roman Sana brought good news for us. Archery Federation succeeded to do well. There are other federations like Fencing and Gymnastics that have possibility to do well. They need proper planning, implementation of those planes and financial back-up. I hope some well-wishers and sponsors will come forward to support these disciplines."
