Injured Daniel doubtful for the SEA Games

MALACCA: Malaysia’s top swimmer Daniel Bego is nursing a shoulder injury and is doubtful for the Indonesia SEA Games, which will be held in Jakarta and Palembang on Nov 11-22.

Amateur Swimming Union of Malaysia (Asum) secretary Edwin Chong, who was here over the weekend for initial briefing of the national men’s and women’s water polo teams at the Krubong Aquatic Centre, said: “Daniel is undergoing an intensive rehabilitation programme for his troubled shoulder. The doctor said he would need at least six months to make a complete recovery.

“So, as things stand, he is a doubtful starter. Hopefully, he will recover in time to make the Games. We will then evaluate his form after his rehabilitation programme before we can confirm his participation.”
Daniel broke four records en route to winning five gold medals at the last edition of the Games in Laos in 2009.

Edwin also confirmed that the men’s and women’s water polo teams will compete in the Games.
While the women’s event will be making its debut in Indonesia, the men’s team will be competing again after missing the last two editions.

Centralised training for both teams, under coach Fan Kow Jan, will be held from September at the Krubong Aquatic Centre.
