Malaysian games / karate: Perak boosted by Guna’s return

PERAK’S karate squad received a boost when it was confirmed that their national exponent L. Gunaseelan is back in the team for the Terengganu Malaysia Games.

Gunaseelan won a gold medal in the 60kg and below at the 2004 Games in Seremban but was barred from the following edition in Kedah two years later after being named to the national team.

Perak chief coach K. Ananthan said his exponents are determined to improve the one gold, one silver and one bronze they picked up in Kedah, and their target this year is three gold and more silver and bronze.

Ananthan said that apart from Gunaseelan, Perak’s other medal prospects are Mohamed Hatta, gold medallist in 2004 in the 75kg category, L.Thiagu Pillai in the 55kg and A. Kathiresan in the 70kg and below.
