Kelantan mulls limiting outdoor sports

KOTA BARU: The Kelantan government has urged athletes and sports enthusiasts to limit sports activities including training in the open following the hot weather.

State youth development, sports and non-governmental organisations committee chairman Wan Roslan Wan Hamat said the state government, however, has no plans to close sports centres or stadiums.

“The State Sports Council also held meetings and discussions with coaches and sports managers to find solutions to address the current drought, including proposals to train indoors.

“We want to limit outdoor activities as much as possible.

“We want to prevent untoward incidents related to heatstroke,” he told reporters at the Kelantan PAS Aidilfitri open house here yesterday, according to Bernama.

Kelantan Mentri Besar Datuk Ahmad Yakob, who was also present, advised the people of Kelantan to be vigilant and not be exposed to this unusually hot weather.

“We have never experienced such hot weather before,” Ahmad said.
