List Of Malaysian Sailors For SEA Games 2015 To Be Announced Friday

LANGKAWI, Feb 26 (Bernama) -- The Malaysian Yachting Association (MYA) will announce the names of sailors who will represent the country in the SEA Games 2015 after a meeting in Kuala Lumpur on Friday.

MYA general manager Mohd Afendy Abdullah said 32 sailors are expected to be selected to join the national squad in the sporting event to be held in Singapore in June.

"The selected sailors will undergo centralised training at Langkawi National Sailing Complex as part of their preparation for the SEA Games," he said here Thursday.

Seventy sailors had undergone selection trial prior to joining the national squad and were involved in several tournaments with the last one being the Langkawi International Premier Regatta which ended on Feb 15.

During the SEA Games 2013 in Myanmar, Malaysia's sailing squad won two gold, three silver and three bronze medals.
