M. J. M. Lafir: World Billiards Champion 1973

Thursday, 20 January 2011 - 5:18 PM SL Time

This is a very rare clip of the maestro, taken from a Sinhala movie.

The unique success of Muhammad Junaid Muhammad Lafir in winning the World Amateur Billiards Championship in Bombay, in November-December 1973, being victorious against all his opponents and also scoring the highest break of 859, is an achievement without parallel in the annals of Sport in Sri Lanka.

I have watched him play at the India Club at Colpetty Junction
located next to Indo ceylon Cafe..
A down to earth man and infact you can not call him a champion. he was as simple a human being can be.
