Limba set for second innings

KOLKATA: Arguably the only iconic figure in Indian archery, Limba Ram, is set to begin a second innings as the National coach.

The 38-year-old chief coach of Rajasthan has been given the onerous task of guiding India’s fortunes in the Commonwealth Games Delhi 2010 and the diminutive tribal has accepted the challenge with both hands.

In the city to oversee the ongoing compound bow preparatory camp, Limba said he was honoured by the appointment. He inked a one-year contract with the sports ministry on Wednesday before coming here.

Limba felt that the Indian archers had it in them to excel at international level. “Archery is an ancient Indian sport. It is being practiced in many forms especially in tribal belts and most of our archers are from those regions. They need to be groomed to take on the best in the world,” he said.

“My immediate task is to mould the team to win medals at the Commonwealth Games at Delhi,” he said. — Special Correspondent
