Malaysia to build world-class indoor track, says Khairy – Athletics | The Star Online

KUALA LUMPUR: The Youth and Sports Ministry will build the first international standard indoor track in South-East Asia in a bid to develop athletics in the country.

Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said the idea for the indoor track came from the success of three para athletes – Muhammad Ziyad Zolkefli, Mohamad Ridzuan Mohamad Puzi and Abdul Latif Romly – at the 2016 Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Khairy said the indoor complex, complete with a track, would be developed at the Kampung Pandan Sports Complex.

“The proposed complex is in the final stages of planning.

“The complex will have an indoor track, artificial turf, multi-purpose hall and other sports facilities,” he said after attending a National Trans­formation 50 (TN50) Dialogue at the National Sports Council in Bukit Jalil here yesterday. — Bernama
