KUALA LUMPUR, April 18 (Bernama) -- National bodybuilding champion, Mohd Syarul Azman Mahen Abdullah, regards the present in the form of a Wilayah Residency apartment unit by the Federal Territories Minister as a catalyst for him to be more successful in body building.
Mohd Syarul Azman, or more popularly called Mike, was presented with the apartment at the Jalilmas Residency, worth RM198,000 by Khalid Abd Samad through the ministry's cooperation with the housing developer Aset Kayamas Sdn Bhd.
The apartment in Bukit Jalil, which has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, had been modified and fully furnished including with electrical goods worth approximately RM30,000, fully sponsored by Aset Kayamas.
The 45-year-old athlete received the present following his success in becoming a three-time world bodybuilding champion from 2016 to 2018 and four-time Asian champion 2015 to 2018.
"As an athlete, such recognition needs to be given especially to those who have won a world title even though he did not come from the core sports or Olympics. This is because we also carry the name of Malaysia while our national song is played abroad with our successes,’’ he said.
