BRUNEI Darussalam’s contingent of athletes and officials set off from the Brunei International Airport yesterday for Kuala Lumpur to take part in the 9th Asean Para Games from September 17 to 23.

They were given a farewell by Haji Noor Jusmin bin Haji Abdul Samad, Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports.

Haji Noor Jusmin also gave words of encouragement and advice to the athletes.

The national contingent will participate in three events at the regional sports meet – athletics, 10-pin bowling and cycling.

Two years ago at the 8th Asean Para Games in Singapore, the Brunei contingent achieved considerable success by grabbing three gold, three silver and six bronze medals in athletics and 10-pin bowling.
