MCF's Deputy President - Tn. Hj. Ibrahim Abu Bakar that our no. 1 player - IM Mashafizul (photo right) has been recently infected with dengue. With this unfortunate news, Mas will miss the coming ASIAN Games in Guangzhou, China.
IM Mok Tze Meng will be our sole representative in the men category while WFM Alia Anin Azwa Bakri and WCM Nur Nabila Azman Hisham will represent us in the women individual category. Tn Hj Ibrahim will accompany the Malaysian players as the official and they will depart to China tomorrow morning. With reference to the official site, our neighbor - Indonesia will only send two players while Singapore is not sending any.
Let us all pray that Mashafizul will recover soon.
