IPOH: A total of 39 Perak athletes who recorded excellent achievements at the Para Sukan Malaysia (Sukma) 2022 in Kuala Lumpur last November, received incentives from the state government.
Perak Menteri Besar, Datuk Seri Saarani Mohamad said that the total incentive amounting to RM240,500 also involved the coach and team manager.
“At the last Para Sukma Games, a total of 93 athletes represented the Perak contingent, of which 39 athletes successfully returned home with medals.
“Even sweeter as many new Para Sukma records have been broken by Perak state athletes from athletics.
“In fact, we are even more proud that the Para SUKMA Sportswoman Award has been successfully embraced by archery athlete Nur Jannaton Abdul Jalil who created history by winning three gold medals at this Games,” he said at the Incentive Presentation Ceremony for the XX Malaysian Para Sports Contingent (Para Sukma XX ) here today.
According to him, the value of the incentive given is the same as that received by the Sukma contingent of Perak state.
He said, this incentive also involves every new record Para Sukma successfully creates.
“As promised, each medal won will be given an incentive amounting to RM5,000 for athletes who win gold medals in individual events, RM3,000 for silver medals and RM1,000 for bronze medals.
“In addition, the dedication of the coach and team manager is also not forgotten. Each coach and team manager will also be given incentives based on the commitment and efforts that have been contributed,” he said. – MESSENGER
