PETALING JAYA: Five Malaysian riders have qualified thus far for the FEI World Endurance Championships (WEC), which will be held at the newly-built Terengganu International Endurance Park (TIEP) in Lembah Bidong from Nov 6-9.
The Malaysian challenge will be spearheaded by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin.
The WEC chief executive officer, Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Mohd Nor, said that the others who have secured qualification were Datuk Kamaruddin Abdul Ghani, Rosdan Mohd Nor, Mohd Shuaib Ishak and Abdul Halim Alihan.
As hosts, Malaysia have been allotted 12 places in the championships and have until Aug 21 to complete their qualification quota.
"I am very confident that our riders will be able to fill up the remaining seven places," said Dr Salleh at a press conference yesterday to announce the details of the championships.
"The entire training and selection process of the riders for the WEC have been left to the National Sports Institute (NSI)."
The NSI director general, Datuk Dr Ramlan Aziz, said that there were several qualifying events more for riders to make the cut.
"There is a group of 11 riders and they are very serious in their training and have been pushing hard," he said.
