Additional Information Awards
He was the flag bearer for Sri Lanka at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, India. (yahoo.com, 24 May 2011)

He was named Outstanding Sportsperson at the 2010 Sri Lanka National Sports Festival. (dailymirror.lk, 02 Nov 2010)

General
SUSPENSION
He tested positive for the banned substance methylhexaneamine at the 2011 Asian Championship in Anhui, China. He was given a four-year ban by the International Weightlifting Federation [IWF], although this was later reduced to two years after he claimed he had consumed the stimulant unintentionally. "I was shocked as I have never tested positive for a banned substance after being scrupulously tested everywhere I went. I would not have taken the food supplement tablet if I knew it contained a banned substance." (cricturf.com, 01 Nov 2012; dailymirror.lk, 10 Aug 2011; bbc.co.uk, 05 Jun 2011; yahoo.com, 24 May 2011)
