SHAH ALAM, Feb 15 (Bernama) -- The feat of Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) in sweeping 18 gold medals in swimming at the second Malaysian Institution of Higher Learning Games (SUKIPT) with help of several foreign students should not be disputed.
UiTM Student Affairs Deputy Vice-Chancellor Datuk Dr Abdullah Mohamad Said said the foreign students who represented UiTM had been approved at a SUKIPT Technical and Competition Committee meeting earlier.
"They were students registered with UiTM even though they are foreign students," he told reporters at Dewan Agong Tuanku Canselor, UiTM here today.
Universiti Putra Malaysia had on Wednesday sent an official protest to the organisers but was rejected by SUKIPT Technical and Competition Committee.
The swimmers in question were Alexis Wijaya Omar, Denis Josua Tiwa, I Gede Siman Sudartawa, Kathriana Mella Gustianjani and Mutia Setradarma.....
