SEPANG: Edwin Moses, the US athlete who struck gold in 400m hurdles in the 1976 and 1984 Olympics, doesn’t seem to want to run away from the Malaysian warmth.
He said he had been in Malaysia for about a week and the support and hospitality was “just wonderful”.
“The people here are so friendly and my wife and I are having a blast here,” he said.
Moses, 59, came to attend the Laureus World Sports Awards on Wednesday but he decided to extend his stay to watch the Petronas Malaysia Formula One Grand Prix.
“It has been a while since I have been to a circuit to watch a race and I am glad to be here.
“When I was working with McLaren about 10 years ago, things used to be so different.
“The technology is constantly changing and upgrading,” he said when met at the Sepang International Circuit yesterday.
Moses said he used to be an engineer and the science and technology that goes into these cars was amazing.
“I have worked as an engineer in the aerospace industry and I know just how much of work goes into these cars,” he said.
The Petronas Formula One Grand Prix takes place at 4pm today.
