The Sri Lanka national netball team, who emerged as the Asian Netball Champions 2022, also graced the event on the first day, inspiring the young participants. Having been part of this journey as students themselves, the team’s success stories were undoubtedly a great encouragement for budding netball stars aspiring to represent Sri Lanka in the future.
“Nestlé Milo has always believed in the importance of physical activity and the unique values that only sports can teach our future generations. Therefore, we are honoured to continue our support towards the development of grassroots sports through platforms such as this and nourish student-athletes to be the best versions of themselves. We hope the championship offered our young talent the opportunity to develop their skills, whilst inspiring countless other schoolgirls across the country to engage and excel in sports,” said Nestlé Lanka Vice President – Corporate and Regulatory Affairs Bandula Egodage.
