Doping and breathalyser test for next sukma

The amendments made to the Sukma general rules involve the participation and registration of delegates and athletes, including those defecting to other states.

States have until the end of this month to submit the number of events they are down to compete in Perlis so as to avoid last year’s fiasco in which the endurance event (equestrian) was called off following the last-minute withdrawal of several states.

“We don’t want any more issues pertaining to athletes being registered by states illegally, last-minute pullouts and the bending of rules,” said Khairy.

“The amendments are here to stay and will ensure a smoother and sharply-run edition of the Games in future.”

The Perlis Sukma, which will have a budget of RM130mil, will also see the inclusion of two new events – cycling (cross country and downhill) and shooting (trap and double trap).

A major part of the budget will be allocated for the building of new infrastructures like the athletics track and badminton and squash courts.

Khairy also announced that Sarawak will host for the 19th edition of the Games in 2016.

“It was a unanimous decision to let Sarawak host the Games,” he said.

“Sarawak has made large investments to upgrade its sporting facilities and is in the midst of building a world-class aquatic centre. And it has done it without asking the Federal Government.

“Besides, the Sukma can be used as a trial-run as the Prime Minister (Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak) has already earmarked Sarawak to hold some events should Malaysia host the 2017 SEA Games.”
