KUALA LUMPUR: Random breathalyser tests would be conducted on athletes at the Malaysia Games (Sukma) in Perlis from May 24-June 4.
Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said the measure was to ensure Sukma athletes were free from alcohol during the Games.
“We will carry out checks at random. We want athletes to know that discipline not only entails anti-doping, but also behaviour,” he told reporters after hosting a luncheon for media who covered the Myanmar SEA Games.
In July last year, three handball players, allegedly intoxicated, were arrested in connection with the rape of a female official at the Sukma Games Village at Universiti Putra Malaysia after they had gone out for drinks. – Bernama
