Marredpally Govt School Girls Win Gold And Silver At International Regatta In Puducherry

In an exemplary show of grit and skill in the face of fierce winds and treacherous waves, two girls from Telangana — Tungara Mahboobie and Lakshmi Nookarathnam, made the country proud by clinching gold and silver at the recently-concluded first-ever International Regatta at Puducherry. Titled "Sailing The East Coast", the three-day Indo-French bilateral event saw the two 14-year-olds sail past experienced sailors from France and India to claim the top spots. Both students of Marredpally Govt School, Secunderabad, Mahboobie and Nookarathnam showcased ruthless professionalism throughout the races. While Mahboobie bagged the gold in the girls' category and was adjudged the third in the overall section, Nookarathnam too put up a great show but fell short by a few points to secure the silver in the girls' category. "This is my first international gold medal and I am happy to beat many sailors from France and India, especially the experienced Chennai girls. I also won the overall bronze. All thanks to my coach Suheim (Sheik) sir and the Yacht Club of Hyderabad (YCH) for the support," says an elated Mahboobie.
