28 Apr 2012, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: The Olympic Council of Asia held the latest event in its Fun Run + Learn series at Bukit Jalil Sports School on Saturday morning.
A total of 280 students from the school took part in the 1.2-km Fun Run. The VIP guests included Dato’ Danyal Balagopal, Vice President of Olympic Council of Malaysia; Datuk Marina Chin, Headmistress of Bukit Jalil Sports School; Shin Sang Chil, Director, Culture Events and Public Relations, Incheon Asian Games Organising Committee; and Vahid Kardany (OCA).
Mr Shin thanked the OCA and OCM for hosting the Fun Run and said he hoped to see some of the students at the 17th Asian Games in Incheon, Korea, in 2014.
Dato’ Danyal welcomed the OCA and IAGOC to Kuala Lumpur and thanked them for giving the OCM the opportunity to host the fun run and wished all the students an enjoyable occasion.
The Fun Learn quiz involving 50 students from Bukit Jalil Sports School was won by Emanuelle Mah Thil Da, 17, from Bukit Jalil Sports School. A synchronised swimming athlete for 11 years since the age of six, Emanuelle has won three gold medals in team synchro at the South East Asian Games.
