Darsha confirms participation at SAF Games

Sprinter Damayanthi Darsha who has just returned after taking part at the World Indoor Championship in Birmingham, England said that she would take part in this month’s SAF Games in Pakistan.

Darsha, who had earlier decided to fly to Jamaica after the World Indoor Championships has returned to the island honouring a request made to her by the Athletics Association of Sri Lanka (AASL).

Asian gold medalist Darsha, earlier decided to pull out from the SAF Games as she had made plans to take part in a month-long training session in Jamaica. "I have spoken to my manager in England, of my inability to stick to the schedule. So I hope to leave in early April," Darsha said.

Darsha, who experienced a poor performance at the recent Birmingham event, said that local athletes needed more indoor training if they were to perform better.
