KUALA LUMPUR, THURS:
The Terengganu International Endurance Park (TIEP), the venue for the World Endurance Championship 2008, is rated as one of the best in the world by the International Equestrian Federation (FEI).
The endorsement came from non other than FEI’s Non-Olympic Sports Director Ian Williams who has been regularly inspecting the TIEP situated in Lembah Bidong, Merang in Setiu, near Kuala Terengganu.
"I have been to many other venues around the world and the TIEP a number of times. The facilities there are simply fabulous and most impressive. I must say this is among the top three in the world, with the other two in the middle east," said Williams at the launch of the event here today.
“The stables are luxuriously spaced out, the crewing area, the departure gates and the permanent vet gates with more than 20 trotting lanes puts TEIP among the elite group of endurance venues," he said.
Terengganu will host the WEC, the first tropical country to do so, from Nov 6-9 at the TIEP with about 140 riders from 41 countries competing in the individual and team events held over 160km.
The Malaysian challenge will be spearheaded by the country’s number one sportsman, Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abdidin, who became the first Malaysian to qualify for the WEC.
