  1. When you were in Singapore earlier in the year and competed in the local races, you ran few sublime races. The locals here have not seen your before, so tell us abit more about your background and your stay in Singapore

    Dzul: I was here for my training with professional coach Mr. Tang Ngai Kin. My mum sent me here and train under Mr. Tang for my preparation of Malaysian games. I did a good time and has improved my running style under his proper trainning program. I wished that I can stay in Singapore longer because I learned many new stuff on Track n Field here. He’s a good coach and I can say he’s Singapore’s no.1 coach with qualification in sprinting and other events. Singapore mean very much to me where I learned to be more discpline. Of course I would like to thank Hamkah and Tok Afik’s family who welcomed me with their hospitality and stay in Singapore. Mr. Tang taught me how to behave myself, haha. It’s hard to find a very good and humbled person like him. Thank you Mr. Tang, I’ll remember u always

  3. How did you get started in Track & Field?

    Dzul: I started running since 1996 when i was just 13 year old I guess. I only started to get serious when I’m in Secondary 3 (16 years old). Since I was a kid, my mum always bring me to the track and teach me how to ‘burn the track’. She once asked me to be like her one day. Well my mum was also a sprinter before. Malaysian sprint queen Mumtaz Jaffar who reign the track in the 80’s. She’s best friend to Mr. Tang Ngai Kin and former SEA Games record holder

  4. Other than track what else do you do?

    Dzul: That would be Asian Jr 2001 in Brunei! I was in the final 8 and I finished 5th. I also won the the bronze for Malaysia in the 4x100m relay. It was a cherished time as I worked so hard that year and things went well for me. Thank the lord

Other than some tendon problem, I also have a little bit of mental problem hahaa. Just kidding! Mr. Tang always teased me, “Otak tak center” (in English Brain not working) Mr. Tang you the man!
