25/11/2021 05:40 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 25  -- After 10 years of contributing to the development of high-performance sports in the country, the National Sports Institute (NSI) is ready to move forward with the launching of the Integrated High Performance Recovery Centre.

The RM13.8 million world-class facility, which will be located at the NSI in Bukit Jalil, will be equipped with the latest rehabilitation amenities to provide athletes with sophisticated recovery techniques and, thus, optimise the aspect of performance as well as the recovery process after training or tournaments.

Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu described the rehabilitation centre as a proud achievement as well as a benchmark in the field of sports science in the country.

"It's state-of-the-art and I find it to be of international standard. Surely, this is good news for athletes and members of the public. I am grateful that it has been completed and started operating. I hope it will be used properly.

"I have also asked the NSI to ensure the facilities are managed at the highest level for the long-term. It is the only one in Malaysia and surely this new facility is a proud achievement,” he told a media conference after the NSI 10th anniversary celebrations here today.

The rehabilitation centre is divided into two areas. The wet area comprises a 25-metre swimming pool, contrast bath pool and rehabilitation pool while the dry area provides a warm down space that has several equipment for the rehabilitation process.

The facility is also meant for high-performance athletes, sports clubs and associations as well as open to the public so that it will provide exposure and options to the general public to systematic and scientific methods in the injury rehabilitation process.

Meanwhile, NSI chief executive officer Ahmad Faedzal Md Ramli such facilities would also provide opportunities for sports and medical science researchers or practitioners to carry out high-impact studies in a bid to raise the performance level of national sports.

Earlier, Ahmad Faizal launched the celebrations, which showcased several latest initiatives introduced by the NSI in its mission to continue to play its role in the national sports ecosystem.

Also present were Deputy Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Seri TI Lian Ker, Youth and Sports Ministry deputy secretary-general (Strategic) Ramona Mohd Razali, National Sports Council (NSC) director-general Datuk Ahmad Shapawi Ismail as well as representatives from relevant governing bodies.

Among the initiatives were forging cooperation with various local public universities, private education centres and private companies; carrying out improvement to the sports Talent Identification and Development Programme (MyTID) and launching of the NSI Performance Centre (PPSN 2.0).

The NSI also introduced subsidiaries that had been formed to generate income and business opportunities as an effort to further strengthen the NSI’s functions in the national sports arena.
