Young sailors eye Asian Games gold
After finishing runner-up at the recently concluded Junior 420 National Championship in Chennai, two young city sailors Upamanyu Dutta (15) and Hussain Arsiwala (15) are eyeing for a gold at the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea.
“Upamanyu and Hussain are targeting a gold at the 2014 Asian Games in the 420 class for under-19 sailors. Their name features in Yatching Association of India’s list to take part in the Youth World Championships in Ireland (12-21 July) and the 420 World Championships in Austria (27 July- 5 August).
“I hope that the government will clear at least one of the two events,” said Gautam Dutta, Upamanyu’s father and a former Asian Games sailing medalist himself.
