In a press conference Saturday in Dhaka, City Group (Teer) executive director (marketing and sales) Zafar Uddin Siddiqui praised the performances of the Bangladesh archers, especially Mohammad Ruman Shana, and pledged further support in future BAF

Archery events at the SA Games will start in Pokhara on December 5

Testing their credentials ahead of December’s South Asian Games will be the target for the Bangladesh archers when they leave here for Thailand Wednesday to take part in the 21st Asian Archery Championship, scheduled to be held in Bangkok from November 21-29.

A total of 15 archers, including the country’s leading archer Ruman Shana, are slated to return home on November 29 before leaving again for Nepal on December 3. Archery events at the SA Games will start in Pokhara on December 5.

Bangladesh Archery Federation general secretary Kazi Razib Uddin Ahmed Chapol said at a press conference Tuesday, “Asian Archery Championship will be a preparation tournament for us. We will know our situation playing against top Asian archers. We will work on the mistakes from the week-long meet before leaving for Nepal.”

India not taking part in the SA Games increased Bangladesh’s chance of winning more medals, than only the six from the last edition. 

Ruman offered hope to win gold but Chapol doesn’t want to set any target for his archers.

“Sri Lanka and Bhutan have foreign coaches while Japan trained for six months in Japan. So it will not be easy,” said Chapol before adding, “It’s difficult to say what would happen. Expectation is good but I don’t want to put pressure on the archers by announcing how many medals we want to win.”
