KUALA LUMPUR: Outgoing National Sports Institute (ISN) Chief Executive Officer Datuk Dr Ramlan Abdul Aziz is to be appointed special adviser to Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek.
National Sports Council (NSC) Athletes Division Director Ahmad Shapawi Ismail took over as the new CEO yesterday, thus ending months of speculation about who would replace Dr Ramlan, who was the first director general of the ISN.
“Dr Ramlan is supposed to advise me on the comprehensive development programme for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. We are still in the midst of discussions and his position will be finalised soon,” Ahmad Shabery told reporters after visiting the National Aquatic Centre in Bukit Jalil yesterday.
“Ahmad Shapawi will take over as the CEO for a year to ensure the smooth administration of the ISN.
“There’s nothing controversial about his appointment as the focus is on the 2016 Olympics which needs immediate attention.
“Dr Ramlan’s expertise is medicine. We don’t want his experience and expertise in sports development go to waste. We need him to go to the ground and at the same time develop the Agensi Anti-Doping Malaysia (Adamas) as a leading institution in the ministry.”
The ISN was set up in 1992 to focus on medical and sports science research. – Bernama
