“Collaboration between the private sector and the academy is very welcome in an effort to polish more new talents, especially in the state of Perak.
“Looking at the record of achievements of the country’s athletes in the past several tournaments has injected the enthusiasm of the young generation to go further in this field of sports.
“Therefore, the MNH was called to jointly contribute funds to ensure that the back-up team, which consists of these young children, gets support during the training sessions,” he told reporters in conjunction with the Donation Presentation Ceremony of the new Malaysian Inter-Club Swimming Championship President’s Cup 2022.
