A total of RM480,000 has been allocated for the provision of incentives to the Perak athletes of the Malaysian Games (Sukma) XX MSN 2022.

The presentation of the incentive was given following the success of the athletes through 21 sports categories in their respective sports in promoting the name of Perak at the Sukma XX MSN last September in Kuala Lumpur.

This included ASEAN athletes who represented the state and country in Surakarta, Indonesia, at the end of last July.

According to the Menteri Besar of Perak, Datuk Seri Saarani Mohamad, the seriousness and dedication of the athletes involved should be given due recognition.

He said, the giving of incentives is hoped to be a source of inspiration and motivation for them to be more successful in the future.

“I am sure that the athletes who are in this hall have given their best and shown maximum effort while wearing the Perak jersey.
