Sri Lanka President honors Jayasuriya, Murali & Susanthika

President Rajapaksa presents Gold Memento worth nearly Rs. One million to Sanath Jayasuriya

Jan 02, Colombo: Sri Lanka President Mahinda Rajapaksa today honored three outstanding athletes of the country in a ceremony held at the Temple Trees.

President Rajapaksa presented awards to Sprinter Susanthika Jayasinghe and cricket legends Sanath Jayasuriya and Muttiah Muralitharan for their exemplary contribution to the country.

Susanthika Jayasinghe, 34, is the only Sri Lankan athlete to win an Olympic medal. She won a bronze in women's 200m at the Sydney Olympics in 2000 but later awarded the silver after Marion Jones was stripped off the gold medal due to drug use.

Sanath Jayasuriya, 40, was honored for his 20 years of dedication to cricket since his debut on Dec 26, 1989 against Australia. He was part of the World Cup winning team in 1996.

Muttiah Muralitharan, 37, is the world's highest wicket taker in both Test cricket and One-Day Internationals. He has been playing since 1992.
