PETALING JAYA: Malaysian gold medalists at the Rio Paralympics 2016 will now receive a residential suite from Naza Corporation Holdings on top of an all-new Kia Sportage car.

"Being a home-grown company, Naza will further reward our champions with a residential suite at Trion 888, Equine Park in addition to an all-new Kia Sportage each," said its chairman and chief executive officer Nasarudin Nasimuddin in a statement on Sunday.

Naza said that the Trion 888, located at Equine Park, Seri Kembangan is being developed by the company's property arm, Naza TTDI Sdn Bhd and is priced at RM350,000.

The development is targeted for completion by the end of 2017.

"Our Malaysian Paralympians have showed their mettle despite their odds. This is how we show that Malaysia Boleh!" said Nasarudin who is also Malaysia's Paralympics Council president.

Malaysia's first gold medal was won by Mohamad Ridzuan Mohamad Puzi in the 100m T36 (celebral palsy) event, while Muhammad Ziyad Zolkefli won the gold medal with a new world record in the men's shot put F20 (intellectual disability) final.

Earlier, the company announced that it would reward the Malaysian gold medalists with an all-new Kia Sportage for creating history at the Rio Paralympics in Brazil.
