Athletics; MAF General Manager Quits

The General Manager of Malaysian Athletic Federation M. Letchumanan has tendered his resignation.

In his resignation letter sighted by this website addressed to MAF President Dato Muthu dated 9 June, he had cited health problems as a reason for resigning,

Letchumanan had assumed the position on August 15 last year after Muthu and his team were voted into power in the MAF elections held in June.

Though the letter states it was health reasons, the undercurrent actually paints a different scenario.

It seems that he was pressured to leave though these are unformed reports.

Still the MAF General Manager position will remain a hot seat as long as office bearers do not allow them to work independently.
