Blueprint to unite the nation through sports

PETALING JAYA: A new sports blueprint known as the “National Sports Vision 2030” is set to be launched by Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Seri Reezal Merican Naina Merican (pic) by the first quarter of this year.

The blueprint’s aim is to turn Malaysia into a sporting nation and by using sports as a tool to unite the country.

In his 2021 address to his ministry yesterday, Reezal said that there is a need for athletes to embrace the new norm of training and daily routines in the face of Covid-19 pandemic that has hit the whole world.

“The athletes, like everyone else, will be affected by the current movement control order (MCO) situation. We are not expecting 2021 to be any different and there will be new challenges in store.

“We have proposed the setting up of the Rakan Muda – Sports Bubble Volunteers – for sports activities and events.

“They will be responsible for making sure the SOPs in place are followed.

“We need an effective model to use for the sports bubble concept we are proposing. I believe if the Sports Bubble Volunteers model can be implemented effectively, it can also apply to other sectors after this, ” said Reezal, who also thanked the government for approving a total allocation of RM940,580,900 under the 2021 Budget.

“Whatever allocations approved in the name of the people, the benefits must be channelled back to the people.”
