Junior Nationals postponed


Junior National Athletics Championship 2022 was postponed indefinitely due to the prevailing situation in the country, where an island-wide curfew has been imposed.

The four-day event which was to be worked off as final selection trials for the forthcoming World Junior Athletics Championship 2022 began yesterday at the Sugathadasa stadium Colombo, which saw a large number of participants in four age groups ranging from under-16,18, 20 and 23. However, only a handful of events could be held before organizers had no option but to postpone the event after an island-wide curfew was imposed.

Sri Lanka Athletics will inform the reschedule dates once the situation returns to normal.
