Sorry is not enough – MIRA

MANILA: The Malaysian contingent ended their 30th SEA Games campaign in the Philippines with an embarrassing collection of 56 gold, 57 silver and 72 bronze medals, way short of the targeted medal count of 70-51-105.

The poor performance also saw the national contingent of 773 athletes and 339 officials finishing in fifth spot overall instead of the targeted top four finish. The Malaysian athletes competed in 52 of the 56 sports contested.

Megat Zulkarnain may have apologised for Malaysia’s failure but the people’s pain and frustration linger on, knowing that it was a big letdown compared to 2017 when Malaysia emerged overall champions as hosts.

The huge expenditure incurred by the government in preparing the contingent and sending them to the Games seems to have been wasted.

The matter was acknowledged by National Sports Council (NSC) director-general Datuk Ahmad Shapawi Ismail, who said the national sports governing body was taking full responsibility for the debacle.

Sorry is not enough just resign and let more capable people lead the NSC or just ask @Menteri breakfast to focus more on his ministry
