KUALA LUMPUR: Ishak Alwi, the brother of cycling ace Rosman Alwi, quit sports in a huff following a disappointment with the Malaysian National Cycling Federation (MNCF) in 1991.

But yesterday, Ishak had the National Athletes Welfare Foundation (Yakeb) to thank for coming to his assistance just when he was going through a rough patch in his life.
