The National Olympic Committee notes with deep regrets the passing away of Deshyamanya Vidyajothi Dr. Ray Wijewardane, the Olympic Yachtsman.
Dr. Wijewardane has lived a full life for over 80 years. A life filled with many accomplishments. After graduating from Cambridge University with a BSc degree in Agriculture, he served in Nigeria as the Head of the Agricultural Research Institute.
Dr. Wijewardane started his sporting career on Rowing. Soon he shifted to Yachting and was fortunate in representing Sri Lanka in this sport at the Mexican Olympic Games in 1968 and Asian Games in 1970 in Bangkok.
