nanam town should have sports field and sports hall for the youth.


The Sabah DAP organizing secretary Mr. Jeffrey Kumin visited the badly maintained padang of the Inanam town after receiving request from the Inanam youth to set up a proper sport field for the youth. They wanted a football field, a sepak takraw court, a tennis court, and a basketball court. They said they were deprived of the facilities for many years, and they have no proper sport facilities in town for them to train and play. The padang was never maintained by DBKK, let along any sport facilities.

Jeffrey said DBKK should try to locate and provide sport facilities to the youth in Inanam town. The present padang will be able to provide for the purpose if properly kept. It is easy to provide the youth with the basic sport needs here, he hopes DBKK will study and look into various ways to improve the same.

We need more sport facilities in Inanam, and where is the Dewan Serbaguna Inanam? The multi purpose hall can house the various sport facilities, like the basketball, badminton, table tennis and others. If we have the hall, we definitely can improve our sport skill and standard. How can we achieve Olympic standard if we have no sport facilities?

Jeffrey also proposes a standard swimming pool to be built in Inanam to train our local swimmers, especially those who are still in schools here. This is a good sport and can produce healthy young athletes getting ready for the big world class competition. May be the lack of good sport facilities is the reason for Malaysia in obtaining a sole gold medal in the Olympic Games recently.

The DBKK, the Ministry of Sport, and the education department should provide all the sport need of the youth in all the areas which they have neglected in the past. We want to improve our sport standard that is why we need the facilities.
Jeffrey Kumin, Sabah DAP Organizing Secretary

下南南市应该有运动场和体育馆给青年人使用
沙巴民主行动党州组织秘书杰菲利古明接到下南南区土著青年们投诉有关该设施恶劣的下南南草场,同时也请求民行党向当局反映要求建立一个适当的运动场。 他们希望有一个足球场,藤球场,网球场和篮球场。 这班土著年青人说,多年以来他们都没有适当的体育设施让他们能够训练培养和发挥所长,他们的福利被忽略了。 亚庇市政厅从来都没有维持该草场,更不用说任何的体育设施。

杰菲利说亚庇市政厅应设法提供基本体育设施给下南南的青年使用。 目前的草场如果有妥善适当的保养维修将能够提供适当的运动场地。 提供基本的运动场所给该处青年并不困难,他希望市政厅能够考虑加以改善该处的运动措施。 当地的国阵领袖是视而不见还是懒得管?

下南南需要更多的体育设施,现在下南南的民众大会堂在那里?该民众大会堂可容纳各种体育设施,如篮球,羽毛球,乒乓球等。 如果有了该大会堂,一定能够提高该处运动员们的技巧和水准。 如果没有基本的体育设施,如何才能培养出奥运选手的国际水准?

杰菲利同时也提出在下南南建设一个标准的游泳池以提供及培训本地游泳健儿,特别是该处学校就读的学生。 这是一个良好及健康的运动,此外也能够准备年轻运动员参加国际的竞赛。 因为缺乏良好的体育设施,致使马来西亚在奥运会里仅获得唯一的一枚金牌。

亚庇市政厅,体育部及教育部在过去一直都忽略体育,如今是时候应该提供设施给各项的运动项目给我们的年青人,我们必需改善我们的体育的水准,而不能永远处于人后。
