Nevern never believes in giving up

WILL Nevern Netaneel be able to retain the individual gold he won at the last Malaysia Games (Sukma)?

It looks possible if his incredible passion and enthusiasm in training is anything to go by.

Nevern bagged the men’s singles bowling gold for Sabah at the 2018 edition in Perak.

The singles event for both men and women will start on Sunday at the Sunway Megalanes in Petaling Jaya.

“It’s the first event, nerves will be there, but I am excited. I hope to retain the gold I won in Perak. I’m also hopeful to make an impact in other events,” said the 22-year-old.

“Preparation has been going quite well. I’ve always believed that if you have good communication with everyone in the lanes, you can succeed.

“I also hope a good outing in Sukma will inspire me to perform well in the Sarawak Open in November and the Penang Open in December.”

But Nevern knows it will be challenging in Sukma as some of his national back-up teammates and also the juniors, who have performed well in the World and Asian Youth Championships recently, will also battling for honours.

They are Syazirol Syamsuddin (Kedah), Mohd Shafiy Zaim (Penang) and Akmal Qayyim Ali Hanafiah (Federal Territories) and potential juniors Megat Zaqrul Haiqal Megat Zairudin (Penang), Ahmad Azriq Izamudin (Federal Territories), and Airel Amri Suhaimi (Johor).

“Some of these bowlers have won medals in the World and Asian Youth Championships. Sarawak and FT will be main challengers in the team events.”
