Malaysian Athletes Overcoming Odds On Road To Tokyo

After months of uncertainty, the 2021 Tokyo Olympics is finally here despite a surge in COVID-19 cases in Tokyo, and a state of emergency that runs until 22nd August. Malaysia is sending a contingent of 30 athletes to the Games, who will be looking for Olympic medals in the cycling, diving, and badminton events. Just before joining the Malaysian contingent in Tokyo, Tan Sri Mohamad Norza Zakaria, the President of the Olympic Council of Malaysia sits down with us on the Breakfast Grille to talk to us about all things sports, and the Olympics that nearly didn't happen.
