CAPTION: NDB Bank CEO Dimantha Seneviratne hands over the token of appreciation to Nethmi Ahinsa
NDB Bank, as part of its efforts to support the development of sports amongst future generations, recently felicitated 18 year old Commonwealth Bronze medalist Nethmi Ahinsa for bringing prestige to Sri Lanka at such a young age.
The young medalist was recognized together with her coach at the NDB Bank Headquarters by the Bank’s senior management.
“Sport is the one thing that can bring communities and even the country together, as was made obvious by the great interest shown towards the Commonwealth Games, and the pride and joy shown by Sri Lankans in the achievements of our young athletes. Thus, as a Bank that has its roots in the local community we too are committed to extend our support to young athletes such as Nethmi who have worked so hard to achieve greatness for the country and themselves, and to motivate and encourage them to work harder for the future glory of Sri Lankan sports,” NDB CEO Dimantha Seneviratne said.
The Bank also appreciated Nethmi’s coach Suranga Kumara for his unwavering commitment towards Nethmi’s win and for being a pillar of strength in bringing her to this level.
Eighteen-year-old Nethmi Ahinsa became Sri Lanka’s youngest medalist at the Commonwealth Games as she beat Irene Symeonidis from Australia in the 57kg weight class. She won a bronze medal in wrestling in Birmingham.
In appreciation of her achievement, Nethmi was presented with a commemorative plaque and was also gifted a NDB ZEE youth account and cash award by NDB CEO Dimantha Seneviratne. Coach Suranga Kumara was also similarly felicitated with a token of appreciation and gifted a savings account and cash award from the Bank.
