Ruman Sana, right now the most successful athletes of the country, believes to fare well in Tokyo Olympics is possible in archery but it needs to keep up continuity of the success they earned in the Asia Cup World Ranking Archery Stage 3 in the Clark city of the Philippines.

Ruman Sana and his teammates received a hero’s welcome upon their arrival at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in the capital from the Philippines yesterday. State Minister for Youth and Sports Zahid Ahsan Russell first to receive him with a bouquet and then the minister offered sweet to Ruman and other team members.

Bangladesh Olympic Association Secretary General Syed Shahed Reza, Bangladesh Archery Federation President Lt Gen (retd) Mainul Islam, federation general secretary Kazi Rajib Uddin Ahmed Chapal and Kazi Ahsan Khalil,  deputy managing Director of the Modhumoti Bank, who was the sponsor of the team were also present to receive the archery team.

Ruman Sana won the gold in the individual recurve event while won the silver and bronze in the men’s and mixed team events.

Ruman in his reaction just after his arrival at the airport, said, “In fact before Olympics it’s a credit point for me.

Because of working hard and playing continuous games in different games our result is coming.  Hope if the continuity will remain, it is possible to win a medal in Olympics.”

But Ruman thinks he has to earn the ability to win Olympic medal, “To win medal in Olympic, I have to obtain the capability before, because Olympic is far big stage than Asian level.”  

“Actually, Olympic is very big stage, Olympic is such a big occasion, where big players from all over the world dream to win Olympic medal, thousands of players like me come from different countries with a  desire to win a medal. But I don’t know right now, whether I will be able to win medal but my aim is to play good and to do good result, If I can, I will be able to win a medal, Inshallah.”

About facing the rivals in the Olympic, as he has the experiences facing the archers of that level in different competition – “Actually it is very tough to express about Olympic. In fact before going to compete any game, I usually tell you that it is difficult to win medal but always I set my target at least the quarterfinal or semifinal. If the target fulfilled then the next steps come easier for me, so I hope to go up to semifinal or quarterfinal,” said Ruman.  

“It is the top tournament in Asian level. To win gold in this tournament is a matter of good luck for me. It is the highest level victory for us winning the gold medal. In the same event we won gold, silver and bronze,” said Ruman.

“Hope we will keep the consistency and our next target is South Asian Games. Our target will be to win a gold medal from any of the six events. If we can play in this way and perform in this way we will be able to reach our goal,” said Ruman about their expectation in the SA Games and Asian Championship Archery.

“I think right now archery is the number one game in Bangladesh, might be cricket is now on top in term of popularity, but if we consider the list of medal winning in international level, game, it is a new game in Bangladesh, in future it would become more popular. If the game will get the publicity it would be more popular and more people will be interested to play the game and competition will be increased and we will get enough quality players to form strong team and will do better result in future,” Ruman replied to a query.

“I want to dedicate the medal for the people of the country, as they prayed for me.”

Rajib Uddin Ahmed Chapal said, “We always give them freedom, we never keep them under pressure. We qualified in the Olympic, so we will prepare him for Olympic. We need not any training in abroad, Martin Fredricks is one of the best 10 coaches in the world, there is no guarantee that having training in abroad good result will come.”  

German coach Martin Fredric, coach of the team also spoke to the reporters when he said, “First, I am very happy, proud of my team. They got nice achievement, winning medals in the Philippines, standing number three in Asia, Bangladesh is now standing third after China and Malaysia. So I am very proud and happy.
