Report by ICF-Media Commission

The 5th World Carrom Championship, from 13th to 17thfebruary at the beautiful city of Cannes, France has been successful in many respect.
The Championship was organised by the French Carrom Federation under the authority given by the International Carrom Federation.

Not only that the high class matches were held in all disciplines in which the stalwarts from India and Sri Lanka demonstrated their superiority and perfection, but they also faced very stiff challenges from the Carrom players of the emerging countries such as England, France and Germany and USA. While Pakistan, Italy and Japan also gave very impressive performances. For example for the first time in the history of ICF a Japanese player scored White slam. A total number of 23 (19 white and 4 black)slams were made during the official World Championship matches while 13 slams (11 white and 2 black) at the Swiss League matches. While the Indian players dominated most of the disciplines, the team of Sri Lanka created history by snatching the title of Team Champion for the first time.
The most interesting aspect of the World Championship was the participation of the common people. The Championship was held as a part of the Games Festival of Cannes, at the same venue where the International Film Festival takes place. A big Carrom Demonstration and Swiss League selection matches of Carrom were organised in the same building, which attracted large sections of the visitors of the Games Festival.
According to the official figures every day more than one thousand visitors played Carrom. I was delighted to see people standing in ques to get the chance for playing Carrom.
The World Championship was attended by India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Japan, South Korea, France, Germany, Italy , Uk, USA and Canada.
While the 5th World Championship was inaugurated on 13th February by ICF President Arif Naqvi and Secretary General S.K.Sharma the prizes were given at the closing ceremonies by the Mayor of Cannes and ICF President Arif Naqvi and Secretary General S.K.Sharma on 17th February, who also thanked the members of the French Carrom Federation for organizing the World Championship so successfully and praised the work of the Chief Referee Mrs. Rohini Mathiasz, Technical Director P. Raveendran, Assistant Chief Referee V.D. Narayan and other umpires for conducting the matches verry smoothly and successfully.
At the same time it was a pity that the Carrom players of some countries could not participate in the World Championship due visa and other technical problems. However the World Championship at Cannes created much enthusiasm among the players and officials who are now looking forward to the ICF Cup 2008, which will be held in November at Colombo, Sri Lanka.
