Kota Kinabalu: National hurdler Rayzam Shah Wan Sofian is returning to training less than a month  after a successful surgery at Gleneagles Hospital here, on his broken arm which was a resulted of nasty fall at the Malaysia Open Grand Prix late last month.

The 31-year-old, who started light training session since Monday, at the gym to work on his lower body as well as jogging around the track at the Likas Stadium was grateful for the support given by Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Frankie Poon, the Ministry, MSN, National Sports Institute (ISN) and Sabah Sports Board.

“I am really thankful for the Minister for his support given to me. I would also like to thank all the staff in the Ministry, ISN, MSN, and especially Sabah Sports Board chairman Dr KH Tan and general manager Terrance Pudin as the board had settled half of the medical bill incurred by me,” he said on Thursday.

He also expressed his gratitude to Doctor Nahulan Thevarajah who carried out the surgery, the chief executive officer of Gleneagles hospital Kota Kinabalu, Noel Cheah and all the staff for their generous hospitality while warded there.

Despite the setback on his training schedule due to the injury, Rayzam is determined to defend his title in the 110m hurdles at the Manila SEA Games in December.

“My target is to keep my title at the SEA Games this year. I expect it will take three to six weeks for me to be fully recovered. At the moment I only work on my lower body muscle and doing some light jogging.

“My planned three-month training trip to Germany in June is on schedule, so my first competition after injury will be in Europe and I expect to take part in at least seven races while training under Jan May,” he said.
