Susanthika elected to women’s committee of AAA
Olympic medalist Susanthika Jayasinghe has been elected to the Women’s Committee of the Asian Athletics Association (AAA) at its Congress held in Pune yesterday.

It is the first time the former sprinter has been elected to a committee of the AAA.

However, despite the Athletics Association of Sri Lanka making arrangements for her to attend the Congress in Pune, Jayasinghe has failed to make the trip.

According to sources the Athletics Association of Sri Lanka has even provided her with air tickets to attend the event. She has informed the AASL of her inability to participate at the eleventh hour.

Meanwhile, G.L.S. Perera, the former secretary of the AASL has been elected to the Cross Country Championship committee.

Prema Pinnawala, the incumbent secretary of the AASL who was competing for a Committee Member post of the AAA has failed to muster the support of the Congress.
