Sri Lanka at World Marathon Museum

Plans are under way to set up a special area for Sri Lanka at the world's first museum dedicated to marathons.

The Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (AIMS) Marathon Museum of Running will host a Sri Lankan display which will feature all legendary marathon runners of the island including the versatile runner who will compete in the London 2012 Olympics, Anuradha Indrajith Cooray.

Former windsurfing champion turned marathon runner, Thilak Weerasinghe represents Sri Lanka at the AIMS. He also heads his own successful tour company, LSR (Lanka Sports Reizen) which hosts the popular Colombo Marathon and the foreign marathon known as the LSR International Marathon.

"The accredited council for world marathon runners is AIMS which set the standards for marathon running around the world.

Sri Lanka became a member of the Association only recently and this year, we are happy to enjoy voting rights so that we have a say in how marathons and marathon championships are held around the world," he said.
