Many of my friends (especially non Nepali friends) may wonder why I congratulate Nepali basketball team for getting visa. For many years and many reasons; it has always been the difficult task to get visa for Nepali players and officials to participate in sporting events especially in Europe and Americas. Recently Nepal Archery team is denied visa to Italy to take part in the world championship and there are many cases of denial of visa for many reasons. Getting visa has been like climbing Mt. Everest for Nepalese team or we can say that climbing Everest is easy task than getting visa for Nepali athletes.
In this scenario, Nepal Basketball Youth 3×3 team is granted visa to Italy to participate in the 1st 3×3 youth world cup scheduled to be held at Bolongna, Italy from 9 – 11 September 2011.
