Two Malaysian para-cyclists, Muhd Afiq Rizan Afify and Muhd Khairul Adha Rasol finished top 3 at the recent 2017 UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships.
The tournament took place in Los Angeles from the 2nd until 5th of March.
Muhd Afiq Rizan Afify and Muhd Khairul Adha Rasol competed in the 200 metres sprint finals and garnered bronze.
Their win garnered the attention of Youth and Sports minister Khairy Jamaluddin, who retweeted the news on his Twitter page to show support for the duo.
Last year, Muhd Afiq Rizan Afify won gold medal in men’s tandem sprint (B) event at the Asian Cycling Championships in Japan when paired with Hafiz Sufian. Muhd Khairul won silver with this partner Muhd Amin Naomi Rozmi in the same event.
