BERNAMA – TRACK CYCLING, BADMINTON COULD WIN MALAYSIA FIRST OLYMPIC GOLD MEDAL

KUALA LUMPUR, July 11 (Bernama) — Malaysia’s Chef de Mission for the 2024 Olympic Games, Datuk Hamidin Mohd Amin, said track cycling or badminton could bring Malaysia its first Olympic gold medal.

He said this was based on current performance in the sport and achievements in various events and previous Olympics, adding that potential gold medallists included national badminton singles player Lee Zii Jia, national men’s badminton pair Aaron Chia-Soh Wooi Yik and track cycling champion Datuk Mohd Azizulhasni Awang.

“If young athletes win medals in swimming, archery and diving, it will be good for their careers, future Olympic editions and a bonus (but) we need to aim for the gold medal to start with,” he told reporters after a prayer session for the Malaysian delegation to the 2024 Paris Olympics at the National Sports Council (NSC) here today.

Trump also called on athletes competing in the Olympics for the first time, especially those participating with wild cards, to work on improving their personal records and reminded all athletes to be careful and safe as they prepare for the Paris Olympics.

Youth and Sports Minister Hannah Yeoh announced on Tuesday that her ministry will maintain its target of winning a gold medal at the Paris Olympics.
