52 Sarawakians for 29th SEA Games

KUCHING: Diving diva Pandelela Rinong Pamg and swimming sensation Welson Sim Wee Seng will spearhead Sarawak’s charge for national glory at the 29th SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur from Aug 19-30.

Minister of Tourism, Arts, Culture, Youth and Sports Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah said yesterday that 52 Sarawakians are included in the finalised list provided by the National Sports Council.

“There were only 43 athletes in the name list that was announced earlier last week and now the number of 52 athletes is the final list,” he told reporters after chairing a selection committee panel meeting on the Sarawak Sports Awards for 2015-2016 at Bangunan Baitul Makmur, Petra Jaya yesterday. “I hope that the media will publish their names so that the people of Sarawak will know who they are and give them moral support,” he said.
