Did you know the dry gym at the National Sports Institute (NSI) was not properly maintained that Pandelela Rinong had to use duct tape to patch the holes and tears on the trampolines?
Well, my apologies, the dry gym comes under the NSC...
"Pada Selasa 11 September 2012, di dalam laman blog saudara Rizal ada satu kenyataan yang bertajuk Patching Holes yang telah memaklumkan mengenai perkara berikut : Did you know the dry gym at the National Sports Institute (NSI) was not properly maintained that Pandelela Rinong had to use duct tape to patch the holes and tears on the trampolines?
"Untuk makluman dan pembetulan, setelah dirujuk kepada Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif ISN, En Ahmad Shapawi memaklumkan bahawa dry gym yang dimaksudkan adalah milik Majlis Sukan Negara (MSN) di mana ia terletak di Pusat Aquatik, Bukit Jalil. Jika saudara mempunyai sebarang makluman atau pertanyaan boleh menghubungi saya untuk keterangan lanjut. Terima kasih di atas perhatian dan kerjasama yang diberikan."

Maybe the Ministry might want to audit the number of overseas travelling enjoyed by certain or all personnel at NSC and ISN. Has it been at their own expense or the rakyat's hard-earned ringgit? How about it Datuk KSU? At least those thousands of ringgit can be channeled to buy duct tapes...hehe
Also, why not restrict the Director-General to one overseas assignment each year...so that he can focus on doing what's best for the country - that is crack his brain to strategise and pulverise the opponents!
In the meantime Mr Minister, kindly monitor the tender or bid process...make sure no hanky-panky please! No one from the association or any related agency should be making money out of the exercise. Really.
Enjoy the picture, nonetheless.

No, that chap on the left is not someone who was born in the 60s...host Ahmed Shahrazad Sani, Pandelela's mum Hartini Lamin, Pandelela, her father Pamg Joheng and yours truly
