In the run up to Mizoram State Games slated to take place during 9th to 14th December this year, Lunglei East and Lunglei West Assembly Constituencies held a meeting with their respective MLA’s this week, wherein Item In Charge, Sports Discipline In Charge, selection dates etc were decided.
The main objective of organizing the State Games, which was last held more than two decades ago, is to revive various sports disciplines which are currently in a dormant state. Medal earning Disciplines at the National level to Olympic, such as Discuss Throw, Shortput, High Jump, Pole Vault, Javelin throw and others are not popular among the new generation in Mizoram due to lack of promotion. The State Games, 2019 is being organized to address this issue, and to give a platfrom for athletes from various corners of the State to showcase their talent.
The Opening Ceremony of the event is tentatively scheduled on the 9th of December. More than Ten Thousand athletes representing each of the
40 MLA constituencies and around one thousand officials are expected to get busy at 31 sports disciplines during the Mizoram State Games.
