Sikki: Com­pe­ti­tion in Asiad will be tougher

Mail Today - - ASIAD -

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.
