    Maybe they shouldve put out a report saying LTTE declares UDI, or some death.

    i guess they know they can ONLY FOOL a certain portion of the Population!

    Why cant we send the marksman who got Kadiragama for Olympic rifle shooting? All Sri Lankans could be very proud. Sure ten million in the kitty.

    Why criticize when MR did a right thing for this athlete?

    He deserves university education too.

    SB Disanayake promised 10 million Rs before Olympics thinking that Susanthika will never win and did not give her the money as promised.

    Even if he had taken any steroids Vidanage would have gained an extra 10% maximum strength to enhance his weight lifting capacity. In honour of his endurace to this stage, in consideration of his background, he should be given the million rupees. Whether he won it or not.


    However, As a moral issue I would wait for the authorities to confirm the the winning power of this young man. If he is found guilty a 50% of this share should be duducted from his prize money and contributed to the Sports Development Authority to utilise this money for the benefit of others WHO WILL LEARN THAT CHEATING DOES NOT EARN YOU HONOUR BUT SHAME.

    Alteast in Sports, let`s set the tone right!!!
