This was the Sarawak-born athlete’s second consecutive success after he won a gold medal for the country in the same event at the World Para Powerlifting World Cup in Bangkok, Thailand last month.

Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Seri Reezal Merican Naina Merican extended his wishes to the athlete via a Facebook post and hoped his momentum would remain for the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Games soon.
