  1. Sometimes, I wish I have the memory like U Hla Min, KJ or Ko John to us. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. There was a famous national level middle distance runner in our days, early to mid-70s, I believe he also played national-level badminton. Unfortunately, I could not recall his name, we used to hang out with many Sayas at the Ko Maung Maung’s RIT sports dept. office.

    2. Mehta brothers, Moosa (E73?/Seattle) and Ebrahim (Met 76/NY), Ko Soe Aung (M75/Los Angeles) and some RIT’ians played RIT/Universities’ selection and also at national level field hockey, There are numerous hockey players from RIT in the all-Universities selection.
