PETALING JAYA: University examinations will not distract sailors Khairulnizam Mohd Afendy and Juni Karimah Noor Jamali from giving their best at the Tokyo Olympic Games.

On Friday, Khairulnizam and Juni literally sat for their online semester examinations while under quarantine in Tokyo ahead of the Olympic Games sailing competition starting on July 25 at the Enoshima Yacht Harbour in Fujisawa City.

Khairulnizam, Juni, Nur Shazrin Mohd Latif, Nuraisyah Jamil and their coach Mohd Afendy Abdullah were the first batch from Malaysia to arrive in Tokyo on Thursday.

Afendy said Khairulnizam and Juni know how to manage their time.

“They have completed one test here and have another on July 17. They also have another one on July 24 but we have requested for them to defer it as it’s too close to the competition,” said Afendy.

“It’s good that they are doing their exams here as it helps them to stay sharp, focused and also occupied.”

Khairulnizam is at the final semester of his degree in Sports Science while Juni is doing her diploma in Sports Science. Both are from Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM).
