Oken Jeet Sandham first from India conducting as Jury Member in 24th SEA Games at Gymnasium I, Thailand

Korat, (Thailand), 11 December, (Asiantribune.com): Oken Jeet Sandham has become not only the first from India but also from the whole of South Asian countries to have officially conducted as Jury Member in the ongoing 24th SEA Games in the discipline of Muaythai here at the Gymnasium I, Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand.

It may be mentioned that he was earlier officially nominated as Jury Member for the 24th SEA Games by the International Federation of Muaythai Amateur (IFMA). Just before the 24 SEA Games started in this Northeastern Province of Thailand, he was in the 2007 World Muaythai Championship with a strong 16-Member Indian Muaythai Team at Fashion Island, Bangkok. After completing the World Muaythai Championship, he proceeded to the Northeastern Province of Thailand, Nakhon Ratchasima, to attend the 24 SEA Games there as Jury Member in the discipline of Muaythai.

Oken Jeet Sandham is also the President of Muaythai Federation of India (MFI) and Vice Chairman of IFMA Safety Committee, World Headquarters, Bangkok, Thailand. His becoming Jury Member in the 24th SEA Games would immensely boost the morale of Muaythai fighters in India and also the strength of the overall functioning of the National Fedration.

Oken Jeet Sandham also created a history of sort when he led Indian Muaythai Team as Team Manger to 13th Asian Games in Bangkok in 1998 when Amateur Muaythai was for the first time introduced as Demonstration Sports. In that historic Games too, he was Referee.
