TURA, July 1 - The dream of two aspiring sportspersons from Meghalaya, chosen to represent the country in an international sporting event, hangs by a thread due to lack of financial support for the duo.

The two athletes, Ibadarishisha Mukhim (Junior Girls - Below 48 kg) and Nathaniel Pynbianglang Kurkalang (Junior Boys - Below 60 kg) are part of the team that is to represent the country in Venice, Italy, in a tournament WAKO Cadets & Junior World Kickboxing Championship to be held from September 15-23. They form a part of a team of 26 from the country, including officials and referees.

�They have been informed of their selection on June 7. Together they require about Rs 4 lakh which is beyond them,� said working president of MSKA, Lorenzo P Warjri.

Meghalaya State Kickboxing Association (MSKA) was formed in 2017 to promote the various forms of kickboxing in the State. The sporting talent in the State in kickboxing can be gauged from the fact that within one year of its inception, Meghalaya kickboxers have brought as many as 16 gold medal, 7 silver and 17 bronze.

MSKA has written to Chief Minister Conrad Sangma, last week, in the hope that he would intervene into the matter. They are still awaiting a reply from the office of CM.
