He admitted his daughter Aarathana in Rockport Archery academy and she was trained there for nearly three months by Rajadhurai. Recently, Archery competition was conducted at Trichy Railway mahal.
In that competition Aarathana has created a world record by hitting the target continuously for 1 hour, standing at a distance of 10 meters. She shot 161 arrows and got 355 points. Aarathana didn’t even start to speak properly, but making a world record at such a small age is unbelievable. Karate school administrator Dragon Jet Li was the judge for the competition. There were a number of chief guests witnessing the competition. Tamil Nadu Archery association General secretary Udhayakumar, Former Mayor Emily Richard, AMMK administrators Saravanan, Kaasi Maheswaran, Trichy Police assistant commissioner Mayilvanganan were part of the competition and they were encouraging the participants to give their best.
Already, Aarathana participated in a competition that was conducted in Chennai last February. Aarathana secured third place in that competition. The judges made a special mention about her stating that she had done a job of a 10 year old girl and it is really surprising. They stated that a 2 year old girl can hit the target only from 3 meters and hitting it from 10meters is a world record.
