Once more, Kerala has proven its fiber by finishing fourth at the 33rd National Games held at Guwahati, Assam.
The medals won by the Malayalees totaled a grand 75 of which 31 were prestigious gold medals.
Though the state finished fourth in the total medal tally, it won the prestigious Athletics Championship Title this year. The athletics troop which participated this year displayed the best performance in recent history of Kerala athletics, and second only to the performance displayed at 1987 National Games.
The troop could better their ranking even though many medal winning athletes couldn’t join the troop this year. The spirit and enthusiasm with which our athletes fought their way up the ladder to hold high the states athletics tradition is deserve commendation.
Kerala once more proves that it is one of the best sporting state of the nation.
