Seven-year-old Rehan Athukorala won a commanding two gold medals at the Kenshinkai Karate Championship 2017. 

Young Athukorala from St. Peters College won both his events - Kata and Kumitae - emulating his elder brother, black belt karateka Randev Athukorala, Sri Lanka’s cadet captain, who is ranked 17th in the world as per the latest rankings of the World Karate Federation. 

Rehan Athukorala is trained by former Sri Lanka national karateka Sensei Asela and managed by his father black belter Dr. Rohantha Athukorala. 

Commenting on his victory, Rehan said: “This is my first major tournament. I have to train harder before going for international championships.”  Shihan D.M.D. Nimal, the President of the Kenshinkai Do Association, Sri Lanka, commented: “Two Alumni of Kenshinkai have produced two South Asian medallions for Sri Lanka and I hope they will go on to compete at the next Commonwealth Championships and bring honour to the country.”

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.
