Congratulations to Balwant Singh Kler of Malaysia, Secretary General of the Asian Triathlon Confederation and an International Technical Officials on being awarded the Tokoh Lepa Award to recognize his outstanding leadership in culture and sport.
H.E. The Sabah Head of State, Tun Ahmad Shah Abdullah presented the award to Balwant, and had the following nice words to say;
“The Tokoh Lepa is being awarded to a man who was the first Culture, Youth & Sports Officer of Tawau Division, and Semporna was under him and he really fought for the Bajau Semporna Culture and trained many youth leaders to become leaders of today. He was also responsible, together with Tun to start Regatta Lepa in Semporna in 1994. He is no other than Saudara Balwant Singh Kler, who is well known by Semporna people as a friendly man. Now we call him to come to the stage and get his award.”
The crowd clapped for one minutes when they heard Balwants name.
On behalf of the entire ITU family, congratulations to Balwant for this wonderful recognition for the good work that he has done.
