Rio-bound Malaysian athletes juggle religious, national obligations during Ramadan

BY ARNAZ M. KHAIRUL - 12 JUNE 2016 @ 3:09 PM

KUALA LUMPUR: Juggling religious responsibilities and a lifelong devotion towards the Olympic Games can be tricky for athletes destined for Rio de Janeiro for the 31st edition of the Games on Aug 5-21.

These however are normal feats when the athletes concerned are track cyclists Azizulhasni Awang and Fatehah Mustapa.

The Melbourne-based pair are continuing with their daily fasting during Ramadan, so long as it does not compromise their performance in training with the final and most vital stretch of preparations for the Olympics.

Azizulhasni, 28, said the first week of Ramadan went by without much of a problem and he managed to fast while also completing his training blocks.
