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 Russell Roller Skating Complex in the capital yesterday.

The archery team returned home Tuesday morning from the Netherlands after participating in the World Archery Championship.

Ruman 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 Almighty Allah who has fulfilled my dream, he said 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 Fredrick, 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 lakh to Ruman Sana while different federation officials hailed the archer with flower bouquets.

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. With Ruman needing only one set point in remaining two sets, the lad from Khulna once again scored 29 against Mauro’s 27 to win the match by 7-1 set points.

Ruman, who had previously captured two gold medals on foreign soil in the First Asian Archery Grand Prix in 2014 and International Archery tournament in Kyrgyzstan in 2017.

He however eclipsed those performances with a bronze medal win on Monday as he had to compete against 200 archers from 92 nations including top archery nations like South Korea, Netherlands, USA, China, Chinese Taipei and India.

Ruman participated in two finals this year in ISSF Islamic Solidarity Archery Championships in Dhaka and Asia Cup (Stage-1) but he had to remain happy with silver medals.

His achievements were when he grabbed two more silver medals in 2nd ISSF International Solidarity Archery Championships in 2018 and 3rd South Asian Archery Championship in 2018 held in Bangladesh.
