Diving: Pandelela, Nur Dhabitah removed from Road to Gold programme


PETALING JAYA: Pandelela Rinong and Nur Dhabitah Sabri are no longer part of the Road to Gold (RTG) programme.

RTG coordinator Datuk Stuart Ramalingam announced on Thursday (Feb 29) after the meeting that the two senior divers have been removed from the programme for their failure to qualify for the Paris Olympics.

The two divers did not make the cut for the Paris Olympics in the recent World Aquatics Championships in Doha, Qatar earlier this month.

However, two up-and-coming divers Bertrand Rhodict and Enrique Maccartney Harold have been promoted into RTG under the Fast Track programme.

The Fast Track programme is for young athletes aged 16-25 with the potential to shine at the Los Angeles Olympics in 2028.
