Sikki: Competition in Asiad will be tougher
INDIA’S doubles specialist shuttler N Sikki Reddy feels that the Asian Games later this year will see a much tougher competition than the recent Commonwealth Games and it would need a couple of upsets to take her to medal bracket at the continental multisporting showpiece. “The competition in Asian Games will be tougher. We will need to create a couple of upsets to win a medal. Japan and China are very strong.”
BAI president Himanta Biswa Sarma was on Thursday elected as the Vice-President of Badminton Asia Confederation (BAC) during the Annual General Meeting of the continental body in Bangkok, Thailand. “I would like to thank all the member bodies of BAC for instilling their faith in me. It is an honour and responsibility that I would like to deliver to the best of my capacities,” Sarma said after the AGM.
