Still no recognition?


UPDATE 8.30am: As many continue to speak about giving our paralympians equal rights, here is an article I wrote on the same subject last year - Robbing 'em blind.

Ironically, that article is still the 'latest highlight' on the Malaysia Paralympic Council website.

------

Once again our Paralympians hog the limelight.

Muhamad Ziyad Zolkefli secured a bronze medal in the men's shot put F20 category at the London Paralympic Games.

Ziyad's effort came days after archer Hasihin Sanawi won the silver medal in the men's individual recurve W1/W2 final.

There's also Faridul Masri, who despite missing out a place on the podium by finishing fourth, set a new Asian record of 36.78m in the men's javelin (F54/55/56) event.

However, there are those questioning to the lack of support and publicity of such achievements. The vast difference between the reward system has also taken center stage.

I have been invited as a guest on Astro Arena (801) at 11am to discuss such matters.

But there still aren't any highlights or news from the Malaysian Paralympic Council as seen on its official website. If there's hardly any recognition from the guardian Council, what more from others?

    1. Kepada Anon2 diatas,

      Saya hanya terlibat dalam penulisan sukan selama 12 tahun sahaja. Saya rasa saya tahu apa yang saya menulis. Saya amat gembira tuan/puan/cik/adik percaya kepada karma, kerana saya memang percaya kepada karma.

      Btw, nama saya Haresh Deol. Nama anda pula?

      Terima kasih kerana masih membaca blog ini.
