World Archery Championship bronze winner Ruman Sana emphasized on more hard work to bring good result in Olympic as it's the mega event in the World.
He was speaking to the pressmen after the reception ceremony of the archery team at Sheikh Russel Roller Skating Complex on Tuesday.
The archery team returned home last (Tuesday) morning from the Netherlands after participating in the World Archery Championship.
Roman said: "I cannot express my joy in a word when I got the bronze medal … I would really want to thank my coach, federation members and supporters who have been supporting me and giving me inspiration to create history as well as to bring medal for the country."
"Each player cherishes with a dream to qualify for the Olympics …. my dream finally has come true and fulfilled …..I am really grateful to the All Mighty Allah who has fulfilled my dream, he told further."
The country's famed archer replying to a question said the bronze medal which he won in the World archery championship is the biggest reward so far in his career, even eclipsing the first ever gold and silver medal he won earlier for Bangladesh at the World level. Sana, commenting about his coach Martin Fredric, said a coach like him is really needed for the long term for the development of country's archery.
During the reception ceremony archery team sponsor City Group handed over cash prize of Taka two lacs to Ruman Sana while different federation officials hailed the archer with flower bouquet.
Bangladesh's best archer Ruman Sana, after earning the right to participate in Tokyo Olympics directly, ended his Hyundai World Archery Championships campaign on a high when he beat Mauro Nespoli of Italy for the coveted bronze medal.
Ruman in his bronze medal match produced an astonishing performance to take a 4-0 set points lead after winning the first two sets by 28-27 and 29-27 points. Nepsoli tried to stage a comeback as he tied the third set by 29-29 points.
