PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Tenpin Bowling Congress (MTBC) have temporary put the brakes on the national team’s training programme after one of their juniors tested positive for Covid-19.
Due to the case, their secretary general Maradona Chok said both the junior and seniors squads have been undergoing a 10-day quarantine since April 19 as a precaution.
“One of our juniors contracted the virus from his dad which led to the whole squad to undergo testing, ” said Maradona.
“All of them were negative but unfortunately our junior squad coach Azidi (Ameran) was positive.”
When queried on the team’s return to the alley, Maradona said: “We will discuss with the NSI (National Sports Institute) on the return date for the squad.
“For now, we have done everything to protect the squad and also doing our part to contain the spread of the virus with the assistance from the NSI and NSC (National Sports Council).”
