Better to train in Melbourne than back home, says ace cyclist

TOP cyclist Azizulhasni Awang has said it is better for him to go “home” and train in Melbourne if he cannot get the training support system as promised by the National Sports Council (NSC) in his quest for another Olympic medal in Paris next year.

Taking a swipe at “several individuals” in NSC over several unfulfilled promises, Azizulhasni – who won the bronze in the individual keirin in his debut Olympic in Rio de Janeiro in 2016 and the silver in the same category in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics – said for a world-class, high-performance athlete like him, training in Melbourne, as it is now, is more effective than what he is getting in Kuala Lumpur.
