KUALA LUMPUR, April 23 -- Malaysia’s chef de mission to the 2021 SEA Games Datuk Hamidin Mohd Amin today met with the remaining presidents and honorary secretaries of four National Sports Associations (NSA) ahead of the biennial games which will be held in Vietnam from Nov 21 until Dec 2.
They are the Malaysian Golf Association president Tan Sri Mohd Anwar Mohd Nor and honorary secretary Datuk Zulkifli Ismail, Malaysian Weightlifting Federation president Datuk Ayub Rahmat and its honorary secretary Wan Muhammad Hafiz Wan Izanatar.
The Malaysian Rowing Association secretary-general Muhamad Hasnul Aizam Bakin and the Malaysian Tenpin Bowling Congress honorary secretary-general Maradona Chok were also present during the meeting.
“I have taken note of the challenges and difficulties faced by the NSA and have managed to solve some problems faced by them through my secretariat team.
“I have also recorded all the medal prospects of each sport and will work hand-in-hand with all the NSA to achieve our target for the coming SEA Games,” Hamidin said in a statement that was uploaded on the Olympic Council of Malaysia’s (OCM) Facebook page today.
In the meantime, Hamidin reminded all NSA to conduct proper selection processes by July and to collaborate with OCM and the Youth and Sports Ministry in the COVID-19 Immunisation Programme for the Malaysian contingent.
He also plans to collaborate with the OCM and Anti-Doping Agency of Malaysia for an anti-doping awareness program for all members of the Malaysian contingent.
Previously, Hamidin had hold discussions with key personnel from 29 out of 31 NSA connected to OCM and whose sports will be participated in the upcoming 31st SEA Games in Vietnam.
However, he skipped two NSA discussions, namely with the Badminton Association of Malaysia and the Football Association of Malaysia which are presided by him.
