Humaira Akther Antara bagged the country’s first medal of the Games, a bronze, in the morning

Bangladesh won a couple of silvers and seven bronzes in nine karate events held at the Satdobato Sports Complex in Kathmandu, Nepal Monday.

 Humaira Akther Antara bagged the country’s first medal of the Games, a bronze, in the morning.

Muhammad Mostofa Kamal won Bangladesh its first silver in the men’s kumite 55kg category, while Mounjera Borna clinched another silver medal in the women’s kumite 45kg category.

Hasan Khan Sun, Muhammad Ramzan, Atiqur Rahman and Famida Akter won silvers in the individual kata, kumite 84kg, +84kg and 50kg events, respectively. The other two bronzes came in the men’s and women’s team kata events.

Antara won the first medal for the country when she finished third in the women's individual kata event. She said: "I am having mixed feelings because it is good to earn the first medal for the country in the games, but I feel gutted for not winning a better medal. I expected more, but a little bit of imbalance on the mat caused the problem. 

“My main event is kumite (61kg), which will be held tomorrow (Tuesday). I will give my best to win more than just bronze," she added.

A total 101 athletes from five countries are participating in 19 karate events. India and Maldives are not taking part.
