Azizul gives good account of himself in first competition since heart surgery

Just like old times: Azizulhasni Awang reunites with coach John Beasley for the UCI Track Champions League series.

Love for the sport drove him back on the track after undergoing an open heart surgery and his determination was rewarded when Azizul put himself in the top 10 standings in the UCI Track Champions League after the first stop in Mallorca, Spain, on Saturday.
