At the recently concluded 20th SUKMA (Malaysia) Games, one of the biggest controversies was on the news that three weightlifters (one from Perlis, two from Terengganu) tested positive for banned substances throwing the entire event into uncertainty. The Malaysian Weightlifting Federation (MWF) ultimately pulled out from conducting the event, leaving a group of weightlifting enthusiasts to run it.
One of the three sports - alongside sepak takraw and taekwondo - that were dropped from the list of core sports due to doping issues in 2017, this week on the programme, we explore why doping is still prevalent in sports with Datuk Dr Ramlan Aziz, the founding CEO of the National Sports Institute.
