Commonwealth games medalist Chinthana Vidanage competing in the 77kg category will be a definite medal hope for the country alongside Olympian Sudesh Peiris who will compete in the 62kg category. Young gun Isuru Senadeera will be competing in the 105kg category of the junior (U20) as well as the senior categories and is one for the future as he will look to gain maximum exposure from this competition.
