Sri Lanka National Olympic Committee chairman Hemasiri Fernando has said that winning 25 gold medals at the ongoing 2016 South Asia Games by our athletes is nothing to boast about.

Referring to the 1991 South Asian Games, Fernando said that Sri Lanka won 44 gold medals in 10 sports categories.

He added that on this occasion with over 700 athletes participating in 23 sports and winning only 25 golds is no great achievement.
