Athletes receive little support

There have been a host of stories in the local rags about the difficulties our sportsmen are facing as they prepare for the SAF Games. Basically each article reads like one of those Thamel t-shirts:
No Diet
No Facilities
No Good Allowance
No Government Support
No Job
NO HOPE!
Time to throw away any expectations you might have had for Dhaka.

  1. Absolutely right Biplav ji, whatthe Nepalese athletes have achieved in international arena is surely not because of the facility and infrastructurebeing provided but it's skill and it is God's Gift...

  2. I place the majority of the blame on the sports associations. Their job is to develop their respective sports in Nepal, but the majority of them do nothing and just point fingers at the government.
