President of Nepal Archery Association Laxman Kumar SHRESTHA passed away

President of Nepal Archery Association Laxman Kumar SHRESTHA passed away

Lausanne - Monday, September 30, 2013

It is with great sadness that World Archery was informed of the passing of the Nepal Archery Association's President Mr Laxman Kumar SHRESTHA on 29 September 2013 at the age of 47 at Annapurna Neuro Hospital in Kathmandu.

Mr SHRESTHA was unwell for the past three months and was undergoing treatment in Kathmandu, Nepal and as well as in India in the last month.

He was a person who dedicated most of his life in sports. From a martial arts background, he became the President of the Nepal Archery Association in 2007 and was elected unopposed to his second term in 2011. Archery, a dormant sport in Nepal, gained momentum and popularity during his tenure.

Laxman SHRESTHA provided good leadership and steered the Association in the right direction during difficult times. He was a good leader who had great administrative and operational skills. Besides being the President of the Nepal Archery Association, he was the Vice President of the Nepal Confederation of Sports (NECOS) and a member of the Nepal Olympic Committee.

His passing will not only leave a void in the Nepal Archery Association, but in the hearts of everyone who worked with him.

He is survived by his wife, a son and a daughter.

Our sincere condolences go to his family and friends, and to the Nepal Archery Association.
