When Sri Lanka won the Asian Netball Championship Trophy, Tharjini Sivalingam, the shooter of Sri Lanka Netball team was selected as the player of the series.
With her height of 208 cm (2 m), the goal shooter Tharjini Sivalingam showed her talent with a recorded 95% shooting performance at the OCBC Arena in Singapore. 39 year old Tharjini was also a member of Sri Lankan team when Sri Lanka won the Asian Netball Championship in 2009. After that in 2011, she was named as the best netball shooter and was recognised as the world’s tallest netball player.
The commentators described the SriLanka Netball teams’s win as a result of collective skills, and as a co-owner of the Asian Netball Championship, Tharjini Sivalingam is a great honour to Sri Lanka.
