10th February, 2018

KOTA KINABALU: University Malaysia Sabah (UMS) track and field athlete, Fathin Faqihah Mohd Yusuf helped UMS to end the National Higher Learning Institutions Sports Championship (SUKIPT) campaign with a gold medal.

Fathin left her fourth-placed finish in the Women’s 400m event behind her as she crossed the finish line in 25.76 seconds in the Women’s 200m, defeating Thailand’s Montita Sombotchai representing Suratthani Rajabhat University.

The achievement meant that UMS ended the championship held at the National University of Malaysia (UKM) in Bangi, Selangor with three gold, five silver and one bronze medal despite being the smallest contingent with only 18 athletes.

According to UMS Sports Centre Director Mohd Asyraaf Fong Abdullah, Fathin targetted the gold in the 400m but fell short, however she never gave up and managed to win gold in the 200m event.

“It has been an accomplished championship for our small 18-athlete contingent where we managed to hit our initial medal target by bringing home nine medals in total.

“Congratulations to the athletes who missed their semester break to take part in the championship as well as for showing their commitment to make UMS proud in the national scene.

“I would also like to thank UMS Vice Chancellor, Prof. Datuk Dr. D. Kamaruddin Mudin and UMS administration for always supporting and encouraging sports programmes to raise the level of sports in the university,” he said when contacted.

For the record, UMS’ gold medals were contributed by Fathin, Ahmady Radi and Nur Ifa Husna Saiful in the Mixed Pair Poomsae as well as Cristina Ideris in the Women’s Karate Kumite above 68kg.

Ahmady also won one silver medal in the Men’s Individual Poomsae event followed by Cristina in the Women’s Silat Class E division and Ji Fedalliah Claritta Jaimin took silver in the Women’s Long Jump event.

Nur Ifa then partnered Helena A’an Lisu and Cheong Pui Yen to snatch home the silver medal in the Women’s Poomsae Team Event while Cheong won bronze in the Women’s Individual Poomsae event.

The trio of Song Lubiou, Dominic Sew Khai Yuan and Bernicael Bernard Anak Megol contributed another silver to the UMS contingent in the Men’s Poomsae Team Event.
