The nation mourns the passing of athletics legend Ghenda Singh s/o Amar Singh.
Genda passed away on Sunday, at the age of 89.
The former national hammer thrower represented the country until the age of 55. His legacy continued through his son Semret Singh who was a two time Sea Games gold medallist.
The Malay Mail, had on Nov 22 1977 published an article about Ghenda's final throw at the Sea Games before calling it quits.
Despite page constraints, it was only fitting to write a tribute to Ghenda in today's Mailsport.
To the uninitiated, this is what The Malay Mail is all about.
HD says: RIP Ghenda and our deepest condolences to all at home.
