PETALING JAYA: Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Azmin Ali (pic) has attributed the success of Malaysian athletes from Selangor competing in the 29th SEA Games to the state's programmes.

Azmin, in a statement on Tuesday, congratulated the Malaysian contingent for its outstanding performance in the games this year in achieving the targeted 111 gold medals.

"The success of the country in the 2017 SEA Games bore witness to 142 athletes from Selangor contributing 74 medals from 41 sporting events," he said.

He highlighted that the athletes from Selangor achieved 31 gold, 23 silver and 20 bronze medals.

"The sterling performance of the Selangor athletes is the result of the Selangor state government's sports development programme based on 2I concepts, which are 'incorporate' and 'integrate', in order to unearth new talent starting from the schooling stage.

"The achievement of Selangor's athletes gives the state government confidence to further increase resources and manpower to continue the sports development programme with the 2I concepts, in order to produce high-performing athletes," he said.
