Karate Kid No More

This week on the program, we are joined by R Sharmendran who holds the record as the most successful karate practitioner in the SEA Games, securing the gold medal four times consecutively, with the latest triumph occurring in Phnom Penh last year. After a 12-year career at the pinnacle of this martial art, R Sharmendran, aged 31, decided to retire from active competition last month.

The possibility of Sharmendran taking on a coaching role in the national setup remains uncertain, however over the course of nine years,he underwent six major surgeries, with the most recent being an ACL surgery on his left knee. This injury was sustained during a training camp in Egypt in June last year, compelling him to miss major competitions & world meets.
