“Mohd Nabil is one of the oldest and most experienced riders in the squad,” he said on Monday.
Umi Hamimah Ahmad, winner of two gold medals at the 2012 Sukma, will lead the women’s challenge.
According to Syed Mohd Hussaini the Terengganu Sukma squad returned home on Monday after a month’s training in Chiang Rai, Thailand.

Meanwhile, Malacca have threatened stern action against their athletes who misbehave at the Games.
