Thursday, February 4th, 2010
..................................................................................................................
The Nepali women’s football team, which is hoping to make into the final, lost its third match against India 0-5. India had a lead on Nepal by three goals until half time and added two more in the second half.
Nepal could still play in the final if it beats Pakistan in the fourth match of the round-robin format. Nepal has already won matches against Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
Meanwhile, Nepali handball team’s hopes of reaching final were dashed when Pakistan thrashed it 45-15 in the semi-final on Thursday.
A victory has been awarded to Nepal though: Tej Gurung, president of Nepal Handball Association, has been elected vice president of the South Asian Handball Federation. A meeting of South Asian Handball Federation held on Wednesday endorsed the recommendation made during the conference of the International Federation in Cairo in June. “My nomination along with Nepal’s performance at the 11th SAG will help raise the standard of the game,” Gurung said after his nomination.
The matches in the martial arts category – wushu, taekwondo and karate – in which Nepal is hoping to win some gold medals will begin tomorrow.
