KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 4 (Bernama) -- National Muay Thai exponent, Mohd Lokman Akimi Mat Roji is targeting to reach at least the semi-finals in the below 51kg men's category in the World Championship in Langkawi, Kedah in May.
The 24-year-old policeman who collected a gold medal in the same category at the Myanmar SEA Games is confident of the target after undergoing intensive training both locally and abroad in the last few years.
"If possible, I hope to improve my achievement last year in Russia where I could only qualify for the quarter-finals after losing to a Kazakh fighter.
"I admit the world level competition will be more intense but I will give my best to achieve my target," he said.
Mohd Lokman Akimi was speaking to BERNAMA after a Royal Malaysian Police reception to entertain police athletes at the Myanmar SEA Games at Bukit Aman Police Headquarters in the capital, Friday.....
