NAYPYITAW: Malaysian chef-de-mission Datuk Wira Amiruddin Embi has insisted that he does not care for anything but his key performance index (KPI) in delivering the 40-gold medal target at the ongoing Myanmar SEA Games.
Amiruddin refused to explain the reason behind his late arrival – three days after Malaysia had already claimed their first gold medal at the 27th edition of the SEA Games.
“I have already been ‘punished’ ... what else is there for me to say?
“My KPI is the 40-gold medal target for the SEA Games and just let me focus on my task. Let’s put the issue to rest ... please be fair to me,” said the president of Malaysian Rugby Union, who arrived on Monday night.
Phoon Eyin etched her name in sporting history on Monday when she won the country’s 1,000th gold medal since the nation began participating in the SEA Games in Bangkok in 1959.
It was also the third gold for the contingent in Myanmar. It was a momentous occasion for the Malaysian contingent, but Amiruddin was nowhere to be seen.
