KUCHING, June 20: The Sarawak Cycling team recently bagged two gold, three silver and two bronze medals at the Junior Cycling Malaysia – JCM Track Series 2-2022.

According to a statement, the event which was held at Velodrome Nasional Malaysia in Nilai, Negeri Sembilan from June 16 to 19 June saw Muhammad Luqman Daniel Mohammad Roji being the standout performer, contributing the most for the State with five medals including two gold from the Men’s 4Km Individual Pursuit and Men’s Team Pursuit.

In the Men’s 4Km Individual Pursuit, Muhammad Luqman Daniel set a new State record of 4:34:761 ahead of Mohd Amir Farhan of Selangor and Muhamad Firas Aliyan of Kuala Lumpur.

Muhammad Luqman Daniel Mohammad Roji won a total of five medals, including two golds.

In the Men’s Team Pursuit, Sarawak’s winning team consisted of Adi Hafiy Idlan Muliadi, Muhammad Luqman Daniel, Harrith Affan Jobeli and Awang Asfarahan Awang Asfia.

“The team’s recent performance is encouraging and a confidence booster for its cyclists. The Malaysia Games (SUKMA) 2022 which will be held in Kuala Lumpur is fast approaching and they will want to show up in the best possible condition, mentally and physically.

“The athletes are now resting, recovering and switching their focus to the Malaysian Road National Championship which will be held in Perak from June 24 to 26. This is their progression in their training leading up to Sukma 2022,” the press statement said.

Meanwhile, the Sarawak Cycling Team is seeking more funding to remain competitive and to elevate the team to the next level of performance.

Resources are needed to give the team the best platform possible for winning medals in the near future. — DayakDaily
