KUCHING, April 10 (Bernama) -- Sarawak's performance in this year's Sukma (Malaysia Games) XVII will serve as a springboard for the title challenge in 2016, when the Land of the Hornbill will be the host.
Hence, the three-time champion will go all out to improve not just its medal collections but also better its positioning in the upcoming Sukma XVII in Perlis from May 24 to June 5.
