KATHMANDU: National team skipper Kiran Chemjong has been awarded with Prabal Jana Sewa Shree on the occasion of Constitution Day on Sunday. Women’s team forward Bimala Chaudhary has also been awarded with Sukriti Padak.
Prabal Jana Sewa Shree is one of the highest civilian awards of Nepal. It is awarded to personalities from different walks of life in recognition of their contributions to the country.
Sukriti Padak is conferred to those who contribute to the pride and prestige of the country.
The number one shot-stopper is currently in closed camp training with the national team in Qatar. With 74 matches under his belt, he is also the most-capped footballer. His recent appearance was against India at the Dasharath Stadium.
Chaudhary is also with the national team taking part in the AFC Women’s Asian Cup Qualifiers in Uzbekistan. She scored Nepal’s first goal against the Philippines on Saturday but two late goals helped the Philippines snatch the victory from Nepal.
