Athletics team leave for Turkey

Bangladesh Athletics team’s two members – high jumper Ritu Akter and coach Farhad Jesmin Liti – went to Turkey to participate in the 5th Islamic Solidarity Games, scheduled to be held from August 9 to 18 at Konya there.

Bangladesh Athletics Federation informed that the team left Dhaka Friday night.

The rest of the two athletes – sprinter Imranur Rahman and high jumper Umme Hafsa Rumki – will join the team in Turkey after ending their campaign in the Commonwealth Games in England.  

Meanwhile, Bangladesh will participate in 11 disciplines there – Athletics, Archery, Fencing, Gymnastics, Handball, Karate, Shooting, Table Tennis, Wrestling and Weightlifting.

Bangladesh Olympic Association earlier announced an 84-member contingent for Solidarity, including 58 athletes and 26 officials.
