UPDATE 12.03pm: Here is an SMS sent by the team manager Ibrahim Mustapha to the Malaysian National Cycling Federation deputy president Naim Mohamad;

Datuk Naim, lagu dan bendera telah diserahkan kpd sekretariat pada 5 mac dihotel royal . Penyampai medal paracycling divelodrom pada jam 645ptg lagu negara ku dan bendera dinaikan/berkumandang penyampaian dibuat divelodrom. Hari ni 9 paralimpik balik jam 1230. Untuk komfon semasa lagu dimainkan tel jo jurulatih 012#$%^&*@. Dia ada ambil video majlis penyampaian. tk.
Hj Ibrahim Mustapha.

And here's what Naim had to say:
I am sorry this happened. I will wait for a written explanation from the team manager. As a team manager he should be at the venue as anything can happen.

...while the team was racing!

That is the shocking revelation made by national cyclist Azizulhasni Awang on his Twitter account minutes ago.


And according to Azizulhasni's tweet, the national anthem was not played when Muhammad Firdaus Zonis stood on the podium after bagging the gold medal in the 1km event. Firdaus set a meet record of 1:05.758s, an improvement of 54.746s, as reported here.

Irwandie Lakasek clinched the second gold medal for the Malaysian contingent in the men’s Junior 10km Scratch event as reported here.
 
If true, it is indeed unacceptable and someone has plenty of explaining to do.

  1. seperti lazimnya, lebih persoalan berbanding jawapan. mana yang betul? pengurus datang ke event atau tidak? azizzul ada disanakah? audio negaraku diserah ke tidak?
    hmmm... aku pon jadi terikut ikut dengan renungan2 (dan keluhan2 panjang) oleh blogger HD sekarang).

Football journo's accreditation card retracted for being 'overly critical'

Four Four Two journalist Vijhay Vick's accreditation card to cover the M-League has been "retracted" by Football Malaysia LLP last night.

The letter, signed by FMLLP chief executive officer Kevin Ramalingam, stated:
"We are open to criticism by the public, however, it has been brought to FMLLP's attention that you have been overly critical of the Malaysian League and have made misleading statements and or shared misleading statements made by third parties. This is very damaging to the image of the League and the brand that we are trying to build."
It remains unclear which articles written by Vijhay are said to be "overly critical" of the Malaysian League.
Vijhay, in responding to the letter he received last night, said: 
"I was shocked (to receive the letter). I would like to know which articles of mine that are overly critical of the league."
