Javelin thrower Waruna off to Finland for training

Javelin Thrower Waruna Lakshan Dayarathne will be off to Finland on Sunday for a training stint of three months targeting forthcoming Commonwealth Games 2018.

Waruna cleared 80m mark twice earlier this year with a best of 82.19m to gain qualification for the concluded IAAF World Championship 2017 in London. Waruna's performance also put him as one of the only two athletes in SL with their performance inside medal prospect at the Commonwealth Games.

Javelin Thrower who got married recently, had to go through some tough time getting his training finalized as the Department of Sports Development which was to fund the training failed to do so until Friday where Sports Minister Dayasiri Jayasekara had to intervene and sort it out in order for Waruna to travel on Sunday.

Sri Lanka had sent javelin throwers Nadeeka Lakmali and Sachith Maduranga to Finland earlier where both of them improved a lot following the training.

QUESTION?

Should Dilshan have continued until Cricket World Cup 2019?

Yes No
THE DAY'S QUOTE

“That was pathetic. No excuse at all. The whole team is responsible. Whoever the captain is, we have to back him and try and support him. The captain has to do so many other stuff. All the 11 guys must back him and support him.” “We have addressed the issue of finishing off the overs on time in the past as well, but it cropped up again. It’s so unfortunate to see Upul going out as he is a crucial player in our set up. He batted well against South Africa and it’s so unfortunate. This can’t happen again,” - Angelo Mathews

FEEDBACK/COMMENTS

Cricket is a game of fine margins and Mathews is set to be a modern great. Hang in their Angie, this team can achieve something on this tour. Thirimane and the youngsters form was a real positive. Prasad was missed. Chameera should be persisted with. If Bairstow was our early outcome could have been very different.
