TOKYO, Aug 31 — Malaysia will submit an appeal to the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) and World Para Athletics (WPA) regarding the controversial results of the men’s shot put F20 (intellectual impairment) category at the Tokyo Paralympics here today.

Chef de mission Datuk Seri Megat D Shahriman Zaharudin said the process of appealing to both world bodies would be done tomorrow.

“For now, I do not want to say anything else. We have to be sensitive regarding this matter,” he told Bernama, adding that he would release an official statement tomorrow.

He had earlier lodged a protest with the Tokyo Paralympics technical committee regarding the status of national athlete Muhammad Ziyad Zolkefli, who was classified as did not start (DNS) although he completed all his throws in the final at the Tokyo Olympic Stadium here.

Ziyad had earlier broken his own world record twice en route to what he thought would earn him the gold medal before a protest was lodged against him. — Bernama

  1. Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see
    if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with
    someone!
