Two-day karate meet from today

Over 500 karatekas will vie for top honours at the two-day state-level karate championship to be held at Hotwar’s mega sports complex in Ranchi, starting Saturday.

Addressing a news meet on Friday, vice-president and spokesperson of State Karate Association of Jharkhand, which is organising the meet, Ranjeet Keshari said the championship would also decide the fate of budding karatekas aspiring to take part in the National Karate Meet scheduled in Delhi from May 30.

“Former chief minister Arjun Munda will inaugurate the meet at 11am sharp. The fight will be for 59 gold medals in four categories — sub-junior, cadet, junior and senior,” said Keshari. The association will bear cost of the gold medallists at the nationals. “We have decided to sponsor the gold medallists who will directly qualify for the Delhi meet,” said Keshari.
