Sarawak plans to build centre of high performance

KUCHING: Sarawak plans to develop a centre of high performance near the state sports complex in Petra Jaya, said state Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah.

He said the development of the centre, which was planned to provide the same training facilities as the National Sports Complex in Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur, was the ministry’s long-term plan to produce a new breed of athletes who are capable of competing at the international level.

Karim announced the plan after welcoming home Paralympians and coaches at the Kuching International Airport here yesterday.

He added that the state government would announce the appropriate incentive to be given to the Sarawak athletes who won medals at the recent Tokyo Paralympics.

Bonnie Bunyau Gustin won gold in the powerlifting event (72 kg category), while a silver medal was contributed by Jong Yee Khie (powerlifting 107 kg). — Bernama
