The ceremony was in honour of the 26 Sri Lankan athletes who took part at the recent Hangzhou 2022 Asian Para Games who brought both glory and recognition to Sri Lanka with 11 medal wins (2 Gold, 5 Silver and 4 Bronze).

The relationship between MAS Holdings and the NPC has been a testament to the power of shared goals and mutual understanding. Both entities have immersed themselves in comprehending the unique needs and aspirations of Para Athletes in Sri Lanka.

Vice President of the Sri Lanka National Paralympic Committee, Mr. Priyantha Peiris, expressed his gratitude, stating.

“The relationship between MAS Holdings and the National Paralympic Committee has been going from strength to strength in this short span of time simply because both organizations follow a common agenda in serving the Para Athletes to their full potential.”

Mr. Peiris further commended MAS’ commitment to innovation, stating, “the NPC is ever grateful to the innovations of MAS in taking these athletes forward. In the recent games in China, it was clearly displayed that clothing is an integral part of your body and the athletes felt comfortable and enthusiastic.
