ACC 2015: MNCF hails achievement of junior cyclists

The national junior cycling team pulled off a surprise as they excelled in the Asian Cycling Championship (ACC) 2015, which is being hosted in Bangkok.

Four gold medals were won through the 1km men’s junior, 1km men’s junior, 1km men’s junior pursuit, elite men’s sprint and elite men’s keirin.

The President of Malaysian National Cycling Federation (PKBM), Datuk Abu Samah Abd. Wahab said he is impressed with the performance of the junior cyclists, but is choosing to remain cautious with Thailand and India’s recent growth within the sport.

“Now they (Thailand and India) have really shown the signs of improvements in the track event especially in the women’s category. They managed to win gold medal in the elite sprint event by beating the cyclist from Japan and United States.

“I hope our cyclists would continue to work hard in order to gain more success in the future,” he told Harian Metro yesterday.

Other than the gold medal, four silvers were won through the elite women’s keirin event, 500m women’s junior, followed by elite men’s sprint team and the men’s junior, while four bronze medal were won through 500m elite women, individual women’s junior, women’s junior race point and 1km elite men.
