KOTA KINABALU: Ten local rope pullers from Penampang, Kudat and Kota Marudu will represent Sabah at this weekend’s Asia Club Tug of War Tournament, which will be held in Singapore.

According to Penampang Tug of War Association (PENTOWA) President, Rainold J Mokujin, the 10 pullers were selected based on their superiority in the sport.

“They previously represented Kudat Power, New Born Kota Marudu and KBS Sabah where they are currently the best pullers available in Sabah at the moment,” he said.

The tournament taking place from August 12 to 13 at Woodlands Indoor Hall will see Sabah face tough challenges from top teams and clubs from Chinese Taipei, South Korea, China, Thailand, Brunei, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia as well as Singapore.

“We are hoping to make the best possible finish in the tournament,” said Rainold, adding that their main target for the year is the Tour De Langkawi International Open Championship, which will be held from December 7-10.

The state team consists of captain, Anderson Martin, Geinod Lozitin, Jesper Jiwil, Alford A. Tokuyuk, Jefery Rahman, Alexius Petrus, Sazle Tikong, Asmawi Majingkin Abd, Bonni Mohd Khairul and Mohd Shah Affandi Bitli.
