Former hurdler Moh Siew Wei is single no more. She tied the knot with long-time sweetheart and former pole vaulter Teh Weng Chang last Friday.
The Ipoh-born Siew Wei remains the 100m hurdles national record holder. That means she had gone faster than Marina Chin during the oh so glorious years of the 70s, when track and field was considered the nation's biggest source of pride after football.
Like most of her compatriots, Siew Wei quit the scene prematurely. So did her husband who is now a teacher at the Bukit Jalil Sports School (BJSS).
Track and field has lost its appeal long ago. The pool of talent continues to shrink as the protagonists in the Malaysian Amateur Athletics Union prefer to bicker and play politics than thinking of ways of developing the sport. What a shame.
