The tail end of Myanmar’s monsoon season could not hold back the kiteboarders assembled from across Asia and beyond for the Myanmar Wave Rider Cup 2015. Tour officials and kiters alike agreed that they had never seen such a well-organised event from the logistical point of view.
One unexpected find at the Myanmar Wave Rider Cup was the country’s first kitesurfer. However it was only thanks to fate and the tarot cards that Zeyar Win, from Mawlamyine, Mon State, first picked up a kite.
Surrounded by Asia’s best including a number with Olympic aspirations, Myanmar’s Khine Zin Moe forced herself into a medal finish at the Asian Continental BMX Championships, held in Nay Pyi Taw on October 31
The 10th Asian Continental BMX Championships, held in Nay Pyi Taw on October 31, not only provided a day of exciting international competition – it was also the first cycling event ever held in Myanmar with official endorsement from the sport’s governing body, the International Cycling Union (UCI).
This weekend the 2015 Myanmar National League season draws to a close with a trophy celebration for Yangon United today followed by battles to avoid relegation tomorrow for Rakhine United and Nay Pyi Taw.
Low winds meant that the kiters picked up a paddle yesterday morning and took to the waves on their larger stand-up paddleboards for the first competition of the Myanmar Wave Rider Cup at the Ngwe Saung Yacht Club and Resort.
