NOC Bhutan receives overwhelming response to fun run


21 Apr 2011
Thimphu, Bhutan: Bhutan Olympic Committee Secretary General Mr. Sonam Karma Tshering has expressed his gratitude to the OCA for organising the 2014 Incheon Asian Games Fun Run and first Daimler Street Football Project in 2011.

“I would like to thank the OCA for giving this opportunity and this project to the Bhutan National Olympic Committee," he said on Thursday, two days before the fun run.

"Because of the 2014 Incheon Asian Games Fun Run and Daimler Street Football Project, Bhutan NOC has the opportunity to communicate with the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health. We even successfully invited the Kuwait Ambassador to Bhutan to attend our Daimler Street Football final.

"I can assure you that the 2014 Incheon Asian Games Fun Run and Daimler Street Football will be a great success. We are overwhelmed by the response. More than 1,800 people have registered for the Fun Run and people are still coming to register, so we decided to keep registration open.

“The same applies to the Daimler Street Football Project. Sixty teams registered when we first launched the project. Eighteen of them are from different schools in Thimphu, 12 boys teams and six girls teams.

“The Bhutan Olympic Committee now has very young staff who are very enthusiastic and passionate to develop Bhutan sports and push forward our own Asian Olympic Movement.”
