The National Sports Council (NSC) is toying with the idea of naturalising more foreigners to help our sporting cause.
NSC, over the years, have enlisted Irina Maharani, or formerly known as Irina Kotcherova (shooting), Yuan Yufang (race walk) and Hidayat Hamidon (weightlifting). Hidayat won the 69kg gold in the 1998 Commonwealth Games in Kuala Lumpur before going missing and then making a comeback in Manchester 2002.
Yufang participated in her third Olympics in Beijing recently, while Irina is now a coach.
To a certain extent I agree.
