“It was surprising. I couldn’t believe at first,” said the 24-year old, who earned Bangladesh a quota place in this year’s Olympics

Mohammad Ruman Shana arrived at his birthplace in Bagali village of Khulna’s Koyra upazila Thursday morning, hours after being shortlisted for the best archer of the world. 

The premier athlete was excited with the nomination and wants to take it as an inspiration.

“It was surprising. I couldn’t believe at first,” said the 24-year old, who earned Bangladesh a quota place in this year’s Olympics. 

“It’s an inspiration ahead of the upcoming challenges waiting for me this year.

Ruman was talking over the phone while receiving a reception. 

“I arrived in village [yesterday] morning after three years. I was born here before moving to Khulna city when I was eight or nine. Wherever I go, people want to take selfies with me,” said Ruman.

Ruman Tuesday night was shortlisted for World Archery’s 2019 Athlete of the Year in two categories – best recurve archer and breakthrough archer – along with national archery coach Martin Frederick in the best Coach of the Year category.

“I’m not thinking about winning the award because getting nomination is already a big achievement for met. I think he [Frederick] will win the award because he had fine records in Chile and Germany,” said Ruman.

A month-long public vote and an experts’ panel will decide the winners which will be announced during the Indoor Archery World Series Finals on February 8.
