Shamini, Soumyajit win titles at Rajahmundry zonals

Soumyajit Ghosh and K Shamini beat Harmeet Desai and Poulomi Ghatak to win the South Zone National Ranking titles at Rajahmundry.

Soumyajit won Rs. 60,000 while Shamini collected Rs. 50,000 for their efforts.

Incidentally, Soumyajit had beaten Sathiyan in the Men's semi finals, but lost to the same opponent in the Youth boy's finals.

The Indian juniors have been taking training in Sweden and the results are encouraging. It started with some wins on the Pro tour, followed by other good performances and capped by the team's superlative performance in the Asian Junior championships. Hope the good times continue!
