Selection of some officials raise eyebrows



The decision of the Athletics Association of Sri Lanka to retain Anil Weerasinghe as the manager of the team for the Asian Junior Athletics Championship has raised many an eyebrow.


The controversial AASL official was criticised in the media for inappropriate treatment of junior athletes during the team’s residential training for the just concluded South Asian Junior Athletics Championship.


According to sources the Sports Ministry was conducting an inquiry on his behavior yesterday when the Athletics Association of Sri Lanka decided to pick him as the Manager.


Incidentally, in another controversial move, the AASL has cold-shouldered Ratnayake Central, Walala coach Susantha Fernando when selecting officials for the team. He has two of his athletes picked in the team for the Asian Junior Championship.
