FEDERAL Territories will make an official complaint against the accommodation for athletes and officials at the Games Village in the UDM Kampus in Gong Badak.
Their athletics team manager, Gulam Ghani Mohd Ayoub, said yesterday that the hosts could have prepared a better place for the athletes.
“Someone has to bring up this matter,” said Gulam.
“The rooms are in a deplorable condition.
“In fact, some of the FT teams, among them the squash players, had moved out,” he said.
“On the first day, we spend three hours to sort out keys to our rooms.
“Then, there were no pillows and the mattresses were not clean. I also had to use an insect repellent spray and found 15 dead cockroaches after that.
“I will not be too wrong to say that this is the same feeling (of unhappiness) from all the other teams staying here.”
Gulam said that there were also complaints over the lack of food.
“It is important for athletes to have proper meals, rest and live in a hygienic place.
“We have reported this to our chef-de-mission and he will officially notify the organisers of our grouses.
“Hopefully, this will not happen in the next Sukma,” he said.
