Sports Development Blueprint next year

9th December, 2019


KENINGAU: The State Youth and Sports Ministry (KBSS) will implement the Sabah Sports Development Blueprint 2020-2030 starting next year.

Its Minister, Phoong Jin Zhe said the implementation of the blueprint will be executed systematically with the aim of reviving back Sabah’s glory days as one of the sporting powerhouse states in Malaysia.

“Sabah has plenty of potential athletes in its pool and their talents have to be polished thoroughly before exposing them to higher tiers.

“Hence with these objectives in mind, KBSS took the initiative to introduce the blueprint which revolutionises various aspects in the sporting field namely athlete management, handling of coaches as well as efficient training and knowledge related to sports.

Phoong said this in his speech during the 9th Sabah Games (Saga) opening ceremony held at Keningau Sports Complex, here on Saturday where it was officiated by Chief Minister, Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal.

He added that the state government through his ministry always provided full support towards the development of sports in Sabah such as providing grants or incentives to outstanding sports associations or athletes in the state.

“These support and contributions proved the state government’s commitment in acknowledging the Sabah athletes’ efforts in achieving greatness at both national and international levels,” he said.

When commenting about the Saga co-hosted by Keningau, Tambunan, Tenom and Nabawan, Phoong was satisfied with the organising committee’s efforts in putting all of the pieces together despite facing a number of difficulties along the way.

He also reminds competing athletes to seize the opportunities presented during this Saga and polish their abilities to the fullest for their respective sports.

He added that Saga is one of the government’s efforts in providing a competitive medium for athletes at grassroots level from various districts to compete against one another.

Meanwhile, the Luyang assemblyman also congratulated state athlete, Andre Anura Anuar for his silver medal achievement when representing Malaysia at the ongoing 30th Sea Games in Philippines on Saturday.

The 20-year-old lad from Tenom snatched the silver medal finish in the men’s long jump event with a new national record of 8.02 metre.

Phoong praised Andre’s achievement and dubbed him as Sabah’s new star athlete where he hoped that more up and coming state athletes will be able to shine at international level in the coming years.
