The MUDS 2008 news in newspaper

From the update of Kak Julie,i had read what its mentioned inside the paper and felt that its true that this kind of sport(Duathlon or Triathlon)still not yet being really seriously looked by University admin.Its really sad,as our country feel behind a lot of the other Europe countries,Australia,New Zealand even Japan.Promotion of this of sport still very less in Malaysia,what about in University level?Trust me...if you ask any of the University student about whats Duathlon,i am sure that very less know about it!Triathlon may be they know more about it,but still very lack of infos among them.Anyway i hope that University can see more and take proactive role as to produce more world class athletes.Looking at the recent Beijing Olympic,theres some of the world reknown university students that take part also(Cambridge Uni.etc)I personally had looked at the Olympic women Triathlon champion,Emma Snowsill.She is truly champion and what she done has said enough of a criteria being the best in the world!
P/S:Kak JIha and Ida talk also sudah dipapar oleh Utusan,harap-harap apa yang dinyata oleh beliau dapat Pihak Uni mengambil berat.Bukan ambil berat,kena ambil tindakan yang wajar also...ha! ;-)

Ni....apa yang dicakap dan dilempar....BELOW...

‘Sukan anak tiri’

Pemenang tempat kedua kategori Wanita Universiti, Nazihah Abdul Ghani berharap pihak Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) tidak menganggap sukan dualtlon dan triatlon sebagai `sukan anak tiri' sebaliknya lebih berani menaja penglibatan pelajar di dalam sukan itu.

Beliau yang menyertai MUDS bersama lima rakan universiti berkenaan sebaliknya membuktikan keupayaan mengharumkan nama pusat pendidikan mereka melalui sukan itu.

“Kita minta agar pihak universiti supaya tidak meminggirkan sukan ini daripada arus sukan perdana.

“Sokongan yang diberikan pasti akan membuka lebih peluang kepada pelajar untuk mencapai kejayaan bagi pihak universiti ataupun negara,'' katanya ketika ditemui di UPNM, baru-baru ini.

Sehubungan itu, pelajar jurusan Industri Kimia itu berharap lebih banyak acara dan penglibatan diadakan oleh pihak universiti dengan penglibatan pihak swasta.

Pendapat Nazihan turut dikongsi bersama rakan universitinya, Nurul Hidayah yang mendapat tempat kelima dalam kategori yang sama.

Menurut Nurul Hidayah, keupayaan negara menganjurkan pertandingan bertaraf antarabangsa seperti Le Tour De Langkawi, Triathlon Desaru dan Langkawi Wilderness Challenge tidak seharusnya berakhir sekadar menjadi tuan rumah sahaja.

Perkembangan itu katanya jika dimanfaatkan sepenuhnya bakal melahirkan barisan pelapis dalam skuad sukan yang semakin popular sejak ia diperkenalkan melalui Sukan Asia Tenggara (SEA).

yesh i agree.. most of the uni in malaysia neglected multisport..
UPNM already changed our Vice Canselor.. and we doubt if he'll be as supportive as the previous vice canselor.. we're now back to the old day's regimental routine, so less time to train...
