Amaya Sithumini Kalukottage, a third-year undergraduate from the BSc Hons in Sports Science and Management at Sri Jayewardenepura University, is set to make history as she represents Sri Lanka at the 31st edition of the FISU World University Games scheduled to take place in Chengdu, China, from July 28 to August 8. She is the country’s first-ever artistic gymnast to participate in this remarkable event.
Amaya’s achievements go beyond the university games; she has also represented Sri Lanka twice at the Commonwealth Games, first in the 2018 Gold Coast event followed by the 2022 Birmingham edition.
Furthermore, her contributions were vital in leading the women’s team to victory, securing a Bronze medal at the Central South Asian Gymnastics Championships 2021 held in Bangladesh.
As the web team of the University of Sri Jayewardenepura, we extend our heartfelt wishes to Amaya to excel at the World University Games and bring honor to Sri Lanka and alma mater.
