Siliguri, 30th January: A state-level Netaji Subhash Games competition was organized by the Bengal Olympic Association, from 25th January. The competition was organized at the Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata.
Under the competition, a throwball competition was organized on the 27th and 28th January, wherein, the students from Siliguri defeated the team of South 24 Parganas and the team of South Kolkata to win the competition.
Coach Sameem Siddiqui stated that no good training system is available in Siliguri for Throwball. With the little training they received from school, they performed amazingly well in the competition. Councillor Nantu Pal honoured the Champions with a bouquet.
The Siliguri Department of Sports Council stated that they do not have a proper infrastructure for Throwball. However, a proper infrastructure needs to be arranged for the students so that they can make the city proud just like Wriddhiman Saha and Richa Ghosh.
