KISAMA — The Angami Sports Association (ASA) unveiled its new team of office bearers for the tenure of 2024–28 on Saturday at Kisama Heritage Village.

The new team of ASA executives will be led by Ruokuovikho Chale as president, with Neisavotuo Whuorie as vice president (administration), Thinovilie Keyho as vice president (organisation), and Menguphrezo Ziephrü as general secretary, among others.

Speaking on the occasion, Lhoubeizo Kesiyie, the outgoing ASA president, highlighted some of ASA’s achievements during its 2020–2024 tenure.

He mentioned that ASA played a key role in facilitating the formation of the Chang Sports Association and that in 2023, four ASA coaches were sent to Meluri to train Pochury youths in Nagastyle wrestling. Additionally, ASA conducted its 50th ASA Meet in February 2022, a week-long event featuring Naga wrestling, games, and athletics.

Kesiyie recalled how they brought in one coach and two wrestlers from Kyrgyzstan to conduct a referee clinic and coach ASA youths in belt wrestling in Nagaland.

He recounted that the two Kyrgyz wrestlers also participated in the International Hornbill Wrestling 2023, with one of them, Kadyr Kelsinbekov, emerging as the champion. Kelsinbekov became the first foreigner to win a Naga wrestling championship.

He further congratulated the new ASA office bearers and wished the team the best in their future endeavours.
