Sports therapist Ronald Fauvel passes away

PETALING JAYA: The sports fraternity suffered a loss with the passing of 56-year-old massage therapist Ronald Fauvel (pix), who served with the National Sports Institute (NSI) for 23 years.

Fauvel, who was from Montreal, Canada, died on Wednesday after being admitted to Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL) for breathing difficulties.

He joined NSI in 1994 and was an expert in assessing physical and muscle imbalances that compromise the performance of athletes and worked in the physiotherapy unit of NSI's sports medicine division for many years.

Fauvel, who was one of the therapists under the Podium Programme, leaves behind a wife and two children.

The wake will be held at the Gui Yuan Crematorium in Petaling Jaya at 7pm Thursday.

The ambitious Podium Programme is one of eight initiatives under the Youth and Sports Ministry’s High Performance Framework.

It involves a select group of athletes and coaches and aims to produce consistent and sustainable podium finishes for Malaysian athletes in the international arena.
