Bhutanese sporting community excited over participation in Asian Games, focus on two promising swimmers

The Bhutanese sporting community is feeling excited as the athletes are gearing up to participate in the Asian Games (AG).

All eyes are on two accomplished and seasoned swimmers, Sangay Tenzin and Kinley Lhendup, representing the Bhutan Aquatics Federation, reports The Bhutan Live.

These exceptional athletes will proudly compete for their country in the highly anticipated AG, which is scheduled to take place in China this September.

Sangay Tenzin will showcase his talent in the 100-meter and 200-meter freestyle categories, while Kinley Lhendup will participate in the 200-meter individual medley and 100-meter butterfly events.

To ensure they are fully prepared for the AG, both swimmers will first participate in the world swimming championship, set to take place in Japan from July 23 to 28. This international competition serves as a crucial stepping stone for their performance in the highly competitive AG.

Confident and determined, 19-year-old Sangay Tenzin from Sarpang expressed his readiness for the upcoming AG.

He told The Bhutan Live, “Training is on track, and I hope I can give my best.” While he aims to outperform his previous appearances, he acknowledges the daunting challenge that lies ahead, with swimming powerhouses like China, Japan, and Singapore dominating the field.
