During her speech, Ambassador & Permanent Representative to UNESCAP stated that “Sport in Sri Lanka is a significant part of Sri Lankan culture. Although the Sports Ministry named volleyball the national sport, the most popular sport is Cricket in Sri Lanka. Rugby Union is also popular. Other popular sports are water – sports, badminton, athletics, football, basketball and tennis. Sri Lanka’s schools and colleges regularly organize sports and athletics teams, competing on provincial and national levels. Winning the Cricket World Cup in 1996 and being runners up twice thereafter have taken Sri Lanka to greater heights as a world leader in Cricket. If we trace back the history of sports in Sri Lanka, the year 1948 can be termed as a golden year of sports. Sri Lanka first participated at the Olympic Games in 1948. Sri Lankan athletes have won a total of two Olympic silver medals, both in athletics. Sri Lanka has won many awards at the Commonwealth Games, World Championship, Asian games and South Asian Games bringing credit to the country”.
