DailySports.lk celebrates; first victory and the first year in Sri Lankan sports Journalism.

Starting from scratch, the first year has been quite a journey for Dailysports. With ups and downs from both ends, we are rather proud to say that the team had a successful first year undoubtedly.

This year we set a simple goal for ourselves. That is to win a best web award from the .lk domain registry. Despite being a young startup, we were able to achieve this hefty goal. We successfully snatched a Merit award at the Best Web awards under the sports and entertainment category. Despite the more experienced competitors in the fray, we were able to get our names in the book.

Andrew Jebaraj and Enosh Praveen, founders of Nexia Capital media (and ReadMe.lk), initially took over Dailysports.lk with the sole intention of transforming the catchy title into one of the leading sources of sports news in Sri Lanka. At a time where websites grow out in the wild like weed, these two young entrepreneurs envisioned a platform to disseminate home-grown content, without cooking other people’s ideas with couple of words jumbled. Andrew and Enosh wanted to set an example of leading a plagiarism-free website which will attract readers in their thousands.

As the excitement began to spread among the team, a 3-man Dailysports unit was requested to participate in the 2nd annual Commando 4×4 expedition. We shared the specific responsibilities among ourselves. While Enosh and Uditha took over Live Updates and photography, I personally chose article writing.

With the tiniest hassle, we managed to arrive at the start off point in Thalapathpitiya right on time. Immediately after the delicious breakfast meal, the crew was escorted to the Land Rover that was basically turning out to be “Home” for the next 6 days.

Unlike the other muscle machines, our vehicle was rather open-type and convenient in many ways. It wouldn’t be untrue for me to say that the real 4×4 experience was endured by the media crew and none other.

Before we knew it, we were at the northernmost point of Sri Lanka with luxury accommodation to spend the night.

3rd of August – Earlier in the day, we prepared ourselves by getting the equipment together while ensuring that we had enough battery in hand.
