AFTER two years of hype, the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games will be the first real test for Podium Programme athletes.

Hopes are on two weightlifters – Mohd Azroy Hazalwafie Izhar Ahmad and Mohd Aznil Bidin – to give Malaysia a dream start and show that the multi-million Podium Programme, which uses science to give extra edge to athletes, has done its wonders.
