When Will Politicians Butt Out From Sports?

One of the biggest ills plaguing Malaysian sports is the unhealthy and unwanted involvement of politics and politicians. These pemimpin who don't have even a remote connection with a particular sport or game want to helm the association. Never the deputy presidency mind you, but always the number one post!! Why I really don't know.

A Menteri Besar for example has already enough to do in his state, even a tiny one like Perlis. Can these ambitious but ineffectual sport czar wannabes really do justice to the association, the game and the sportspersons involved? Haven't they done enough damage to Malaysian sports that new pemimpin have to come into the fray? One such newbie is the Perlis Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim who was elected the new president of the Malaysian Amateur Athletics Union (MAAU). Apart from having a slight physical resemblance to former American sprint king Maurice Greene, I wonder what qualifications this man has to lead the premier athletic association of the country.

Read the report here: Shahidan New President Of MAAU, Danyal Resigns As Deputy President.

Update: The Malay Mail has a hard hitting article on the subject: Athletics: Reject Danyal's resignation.
