G. Ramkumar, a martial art expert, who had won many accolades both at the State and national-level in taekwondo, has sought financial support to participate in an international competition to be held in Malaysia next month.

He said that owing to financial constraints he discontinued his studies after Class X and was trained in the taekwondo for the past six years.

He had participated in many competitions and had won five gold medals, three silvers and a bronze medal, so far, and he added that he had won the gold medal at the 33{+r}{+d}Taekwondo Championship held in Punjab recently.

Petition

“I will submit a petition to Collector K. Maharabushanam on Monday, seeking financial assistance, during the weekly grievances day meeting,” Ramkumar said.
