Gold bar-for-gold. That’s what awaits Malaysian shuttlers who deliver gold medals at the upcoming London Olympic Games.
Dangling the carrot at a news conference here Tuesday, KLRC Chief Datuk Seri Andrew Kam said he would be presenting a 12.5kg gold bar worth over RM2 million to gold medal winners.
“If there are more than two gold medal winners, the gold bar will be divided equally,” he said, adding that the gold bar incentive would only be given to badminton players as the sports was his passion.
Throwing his challenge to Malaysian shuttlers to grab the first gold medal at the Olympics for Malaysia, he said that Malaysians would be rooting for badminton players as the fans love the sports very much.
