Four teams from Army, three from BSF including a women’s team, one team each from Himachal, Arunachal and Jammu; are participating in the competition. The winners will compete in the World Rafting Championship to be held in France in June 2021.
On Wednesday, the competition witnessed intense action in the ‘Downriver’ segment while the following days will see the RX and Slalom races. Here are some glimpses of the national rafting championship.
Some sports disciplines are not reflected as much as the others in the media with ‘Rafting’ being one of them with hardly any competitive presence in Goa other than being a tourist attraction. ‘LiveNewsGoa.com will be looking to bring such sports disciplines out from obscurity by providing coverage in order to enthuse the sports fraternity and provide encouragement to the development of the concerned sports discipline in Goa.
