I don’t know when will we become champion again. This time around, Safrey Sumping managed to get fifth spot in the 22nd Mt. Kinabalu International Climbathon 2008 (it was yesterday). Last year he was fourth. A year before he was third. Apparently, he said that he was just recovered from flu a week ago. So, he was not having his 100% fitness during the race. Sigh…
The last Malaysian (Sabahan) runner who won this race was Guianus Salagan in 1996, which was his third consecutive Men’s Open title.
Danny Kuilin (Women’s Open) comes second.
Congratulations for all the winners. It is just occurred to me that staying second best should not be in our mentality anymore. We should work harder to be the best, moreover when the race event place is here.
Hopefully, next year we could get better result.
p.s: Yes, this post may also be related to Lee Chog Wei’s result in the Beijing 2008 Olympics.
Update 26th August: Full result get be seen here.
