As a part of the on-going implementations of the comprehensive state's Sports Policy, Government of Mizoram is rolling out the plan to organize the State Games from December 9 to 14, this Year. This was decided at the State Level Implementation and Monitoring Committee, Mizoram State Games under the chairmanship of the State's Sports Minister Pu Robert Romawia Royte at the Secretariat's Conference Hall, this afternoon.
The main objectives of organizing the State Games which was last held more than two decades ago will be reviving those sports disciplines which are currently in a dormant state. Medal earning Discipline at the National level to Olympic, such as Discuss Throw, Shortput, High Jump, Pole Vault, Javelin throw and others hardly get any attention of the new generation in Mizoram due to lack of events. And the State's Sports Minister Pu Robert Romawia Royte is among many sports enthusiasts who are very optimistic of the significance of the coming mega sports event in promoting athletics and other sports disciplines in the sideline of the more popular Major Games.
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.
