KOTA KINABALU: Malaysians in Sabah and Sarawak are just as pleased with the performance of the Olympians.

Sabah Badminton Association supreme council member Golubi Guntarek said winning and losing was part of a game.

“We Malaysians accept the silvers and bronze and are truly happy,” he said.

He said all the Malaysian Olympians had done their best and there was nothing more they could have done.

In Sibu, Sarawak Central Region Hotels Association chairman Johnny Wong felt the athletes had tried their best but “luck was not with them”.

“People should give them their full support so that they can do better next time,” he said.

Malaysia Amateur Volleyball Association president Dr Hii Sui Cheng said he felt proud to be a Malaysian.

“I was especially happy to see all Malaysians of different backgrounds unite and cheer for the Olympians,” said Dr Hii, a leasing company chief executive officer.

“As a sports leader, I will do my part to help the young people go for excellence.”
