KANGAR, May 27 (Bernama) -- Swimming events that were scheduled to start tomorrow will be delayed by one day to ensure all safety aspects are in place said Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports Datuk M. Saravanan.
Saravanan said though the swimming complex would be ready in 24 hours, all safety aspects need to be checked to ensure the safety of athletes as well as to make sure all facilities are in place.
"The infrastructure is ready and can be used but all facilities and safety aspects must be checked and tested to ensure everything is in order. Since the games involves young athletes we must make sure all safety aspects are in order.
"We do not want something to go wrong and the ministry or the National Sports Council blamed for it," he told reporters here Tuesday.
Saravanan was also disappointed with the state Public Works Department that was responsible to monitor the construction of the swimming complex.....
