KOTA KINABALU: The Sabah Cabinet agreed yesterday to revive the Borneo Games to raise the standard of sports in East Malaysia.
The Borneo Games, which had involved Sabah, Sarawak and Brunei, have not been organised since 1984.
Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman said that the states Youth and Sports Minister, Datuk Masidi Manjun, had briefed the Cabinet that the Borneo Games would be held once in every two years.
Apart from Sabah, Sarawak and Brunei, we will invite one other state from the mainland, he said after chairing the Cabinet meeting at Wisma Innoprise near here yesterday.
He added the three Borneo teams might take turns to host the Games.
Although a definite date has not been fixed for the Games, the endorsement of the Cabinet will bring about new expectations to the people in Borneo, especially in sports. Bernama
