KUALA LUMPUR: Giving out incentives and rewards to national heroes is the right move towards the development of the nation’s sports as it can boost the fighting spirit of athletes.

Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) patron, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor said incentives were effective especially for young athletes who had just began to represent the country at international level.

Rosmah said she had discussed with national badminton players who pledged to win a gold medal in the Olympics in Tokyo, Japan in 2020.

The wife of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said she also advised national athletes to not take shortcuts in their pursuit to become champions but instead work hard and make sacrifices to achieve their objective.

“This is what it takes to be a champion…Must have the desire to be a champion and you have to let go a lot of the things which are not very good for you, you have to sacrifice,” she said.

Earlier she witnessed the presentation of mock cheques by Celcom chief executive officer Michael Kuehner (BAM’s main sponsor), to eight national badminton players who had represented the country in the Rio Olympics.
