    The stress of competition should be a breeze after the stress of combat.

    these guys seem to be a little old to have been forced child soldiers during the time of that conflict… If they were only kids it would have to have been quite a while ago. If so I could see rehabilitation, but if they joined a terrorist organization as adults shouldn’t they be in front of a firing line or working a chain gang til they drop of old age?

      That war was going on for around 25-26 years. And it only ended relatively recently.

    So the Sri Lanken govt is rehabbing former “terrorists” by training them to be expert marksmen? Makes as much sense as putting a reformed child molester in charge of nap time at the local daycare…
