Feb 14, 2011 10:03:47 AM - itnnews.lk

Anita Kumudini is an athlete who had grown up abroad although she was born in Sri Lanka. She had done Sri Lanka proud by winning the gold medal in the South Asian skating competition.

This is also the first time that Sri Lanka had succeeded in bagging a gold in skating, which is considered as a very difficult sporting event. As such by winning a gold medal in such a sporting event she had brought fame to Sri Lanka. Two weeks after she was born in Sri Lanka, Anita had been adopted by her Swiss parents. She enjoys dual citizenship in Sri Lanka as well in Switzerland.
