Itanagar, July 6: After successfully hosting the National Weightlifting Championship in the first part of this year, Arunachal Pradesh has been assigned to host yet another National level championship in the State in November next.
“The State will host the Junior National Taekwondo Championship in Nahar-lagun from November 19 to 21,” announced Taekwondo Federation of India (TFI) Chairman (Technical) P A Gurung here yesterday. Gurung announced this immediately after he inspected the infrastructural and accommodation facilities available for players and officials. “With participation of more than 800 players and 200 officials, this would be definitely a mega event,” Gurung said.
TFI give more importance on junior level championship because of the fact that these junior players are graduated to senior ranks within one or two years, who constitute the National team, Gurung added.
Arunachal Taekwondo Association president, Kipa Kaha said that he would leave no stone unturned to make the event a grand success. He reconstituted the executive body of ATA with induction of few new office bearers and members for smooth functioning and organization of the mega event. He advised the executive body members to consult, co-operate and co-ordinate activities with each other so that all arrangements and preparations for the National event could be completed well ahead of the scheduled time.
An organizing committee headed by ATA president, Kipa as chairman and vice president L Sokun Singh as organizing secretary was also constituted.
