IPOH: It's back in the muay thai training for Ahmad Dhanish Azrilrizal following a break to focus on his SPM examination.

Achieving 8As in SPM 2022, the younger brother of world muay thai champ Nur Amisha said he would now continue with serious training.

“When I was in Form One, I represented Perak for several tournaments, and later stopped as I wanted to focus on my studies.

“I am very happy that I achieved such good results, and after this, it is time for me to pick up the momentum for muay thai,” he said after collecting his results at SMK Gunung Rapat on Thursday (June 8)

Ahmad Dhanish said his father, who is also his muay thai coach and manager, would assist in the training process.

“I am also thinking of taking up either marketing or English diploma courses,” he added.

For R. Hemanth Ganesh, constant encouragement from his father, who is a secondary school principal, his passion to seek knowledge, and help from his teachers, resulted in him obtaining 9As.

“I was worried when I sat for my biology, and additional maths papers, as both these subjects were difficult, and I was not very confident of obtaining As for the two papers.

“Throughout my school exams, I never got straight As, and when I looked at my certificate, I was shocked,” said Hemanth, who plans to either take up law or architecture courses.

Wah Shafina Bah On, an Orang Asli student and a long jump athlete, said despite not getting straight As, she was proud of her achievements.

“I got a mixture of As, Cs and an E, but I did try my best.

“Currently, the selection for Sukma is ongoing, and I really hope that I get chosen.

“My future plans are to take up a course in sports coaching probably, as my passion lies in sports,” said Wah Shafina, who is from Ulu Geruntum in Gopeng.

At a press conference held earlier, Perak Education Department director Mohamad Fauzi Mahson said a total of 32,735 candidates registered for SPM in the state for 2022.

He said this included students from private schools, national schools, and religious schools.

“A total of 669 or 2.42% candidates scored all As (A+, A, and A-), with 13 students scoring all A+.

“We also have 89 candidates with special needs whereby one of them who is blind, scored all As in the results,” he said.
