Leave no stone unturned in probe on Ziyad losing Paralympic gold medal


All eyes are now on the officials accompanying Paralympian Muhammad Ziyad Zolkefli who was “robbed” of his gold medal and world record following a call room violation at the Tokyo Paralympics two days ago.

That was the first paragraph of Twentytwo13's news highlights yesterday.

Yesterday was also the day I was invited to share my views regarding the fiasco on BFM's Evening Edition.

I tweeted the summary of what I said on the show:

Today, a former sports official had this to say:

"Tidak kira Paralimpik atau Olimpik, jadikan ini sebagai pengajaran supaya tidak ambil mudah perkara macam ini. Bukannya susah pun menjalankan tugas, pergi mengikut pasukan bukannya nak bersuka ria.

"Ini bukan pertandingan peringkat sekolah atau Sukma (Sukan Malaysia). Ini Paralimpik temasya yang tertinggi, sepatutnya tidak boleh jadi (insiden) macam ini."

Read the full report by national news agency, Bernama - Emas Muhammad Ziyad: Peraturan untuk dipatuhi, bukan dilanggar.

The new Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu has called for the formation of a committee to investigate the incident.

Yes, another committee. And I hope the findings of this committee will be made public so that we can fully and truly understand what went wrong in Tokyo.
