PETALING JAYA: National cyclists Grace Phang and Muhammad Fauzan Ahmad Lufti, swimmer Khoo Cai Lin and triathlete Kimbeley Yap are among 15 athletes chosen to be part of the PowerBar Team Elite programme.
The grassroots sports ambassador programme, revealed by Nestle PowerBar on Wednesday, supports sportsmen and women, coaches and other sports influencers across a wide range of sports. It is designed to encourage sports excellence and also educate the public about sports health and nutrition.
As part of the programme, the athletes will receive products, support, and merchandise which will equip them for training and competition.
“I am happy to be chosen. With my supplements being supported, I can pay full attention to training for upcoming events such as the Commonwealth and Asian Games,” said Cai Lin.
The others are triathletes Muhammad Hafiz Wong, Mohd Amran Abd Ghani and Don Khor Ngee Leong, runner Shaharudin Hashim, and the Corbusier Cycling Team.
Nestle PowerBar is also sponsoring the Ironman 70.3 (half Ironman: 1.2-mile swim, 56-mile ride, 13.1-mile run) in Putrajaya on April 13 and the Ironman Malaysia in Langkawi on Sept 27, which will witness the participation of several of the chosen athletes.
