KOTA KINABALU: Two Sukma-bound Sabah karate exponents received a financial boost after being appointed as ambassadors to a local security company.

The athletes, Pressy Misty Philip and Vellcarollyne Augustine have been given a one-year contract to be the ambassadors of Securido Guard Services Sdn Bhd.

Pressy, who won a silver medal for Malaysia at the Kuala Lumpur SEA Games last year, together with Vellcarollyne, will receive a monthly allowance during the duration of the contract, which started early this month.

Sabah Karate Association (SKA), Julian Chin, revealed this when delivering his speech at the closing of the 17th Sabah State Under-21, Junior and Cadet Karate Championship in Likas on Sunday.

Managing Director of Securido Guard Services Sdn Bhd, Mohd Fadli Shah Najmuddin, handed over the appointment letter to both Pressy and Vellcarollyne at the same event witnessed by Sabah Sports Board chairman Datuk Louis Rampas and General Manager Datuk Penyuki Matta as well as SKA senior officials.

Julian expressed his sincere thanks Mohd Fadli and his company for their generosity while hoping that more private sector or individual would come forward to take part in a smart partnership to assist in the development of karate in the state.

He also urged the state Sukma trainees to train and work harder in their quest for glory in Sukma. He said the doors were not closed on the other athletes as they would continue to look for the best only to represent the State.

“I want to advise the athletes to always keep their performance level high and try to improve and be better, including discipline,” he added.

For the record, SKA too has hired former Egypt national champion Mustafa Elsayed Mohamad Elsnbawy on a short-term deal to train the state exponents in preparation for Sukma.

In the last Sukma in Kuching, Sarawak, Sabah karate did not set any target but they still managed to return home with medals, including two gold.
