Veteran sports writers honoured

The Myanmar Sports Writers Association organized the fifth respect-paying ceremony for veteran sports writers on 23 February in Mandalay.
Altogether 18 veteran writers attended the ceremony to take respect. Officials recounted the history of respect-paying ceremonies and outlined plans to expand the association. The younger writers went to the homes of their elders to present them gifts.
One of the veteran writers who took respect was Gyodu Nyunt Maung, who wrote features for the once-famous journal Tagun. He received K 200,000 contributed by the Ministry of Sports, K 100,000 by Myanmar Football Federation and K 200,000 by sports writers plus kind.—Thiha Ko Ko (Mandalay)
