Tekad Azizulhasni

RAMAI mula mempersoalkan kewibawaan pelumba negara, Azizulhasni Awang terhadap keupayaan anak muda kelahiran Terengganu itu mengekalkan prestasinya selaku pelumba nombor satu Malaysia selepas bergelar suami, 30 Januari ini.

RAMAI mula mempersoalkan kewibawaan pelumba negara, Azizulhasni Awang terhadap keupayaan anak muda kelahiran Terengganu itu mengekalkan prestasinya selaku pelumba nombor satu Malaysia selepas bergelar suami, 30 Januari ini.


Namun apa yang dilakukan Azizul ketika di Kejohanan Dunia Klasik Siri 4 di Beijing, Ahad lalu, membuktikan segala-galanya bahawa dia tetap mempunyai tanggungjawab yang perlu dilunaskan.


Sebagai seorang pelumba, Azizul sedar tanggungjawabnya sebagai harapan negara, terutama untuk membawa pulang pingat emas di Sukan Olimpik, Beijing dan semua itu pasti tidak akan lari daripada fokus utamanya.


Dia yang tiba ke tanah air daripada Beijing semalam menegaskan, persoalan utama ketika ini adalah diri sendiri.


“Insya-Allah. Kita perlu profesional menguruskan segala hal dan pastinya saya tidak akan mencampur adukkan urusan peribadi dan kerjaya.

“Saya juga yakin saya mampu melakukan yang terbaik untuk negara dan juga diri sendiri biarpun nanti saya bergelar suami,” katanya yang mengambil contoh Shane Perkins, 24, dari Australia yang turut bergelar suami dan bapa.


Perkins kini berkedudukan tempat kedua dunia di belakang pelumba Perancis, Kevin Sireau dan turut menjadi pelumba pilihan untuk merangkul gelaran juara dunia dalam acara pecut di Piala Dunia Mac ini.


Mengulas mengenai kejayaannya merangkul jersi putih dan akan turun selaku pendahulu dalam acara keirin di Piala Dunia, Mac ini, Azizul berkata dia perlu lebih berhati-hati dalam misi mencari jersi pelangi selaku juara dunia.


“Strategi perlu diatur dengan lebih terancang supaya apa yang terjadi tahun lalu tidak berulang lagi tahun ini kerana saya pasti akan menjadi sasaran lawan apabila menyarung jersi putih,” katanya yang turut layak dalam acara pecut apabila muncul sebagai juara Asia.

Emas untuk bakal isteri

SEPANG - Kejayaan jaguh berbasikal trek negara, Mohd Azizulhasni Awang meraih pingat emas dalam acara keirin di kejohanan Piala Dunia Klasik di Beijing, China merupakan ‘hadiah perkahwinan’ untuk bakal isterinya, Athiah Ilyana Abdul Samat pada majlis perkahwinan mereka yang akan berlangsung pada Sabtu ini.

Mohd Azizulhasni berkata, sebelum ini Athiah Ilyana ada memintanya untuk memenangi emas sebagai hadiah perkahwinan.

“Saya cuma berjanji akan cuba sedaya upaya dan syukur akhirnya berjaya memenangi emas acara keirin selain meraih jersi putih,” katanya kepada pemberita sebaik tiba di Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa Kuala Lumpur (KLIA) daripada menyertai kejohanan itu semalam.

Pelumba kelahiran Terengganu itu berkata, kejayaan itu tidak melekakannya sebaliknya kini memasang impian untuk memenangi Jersi Pelangi sekaligus sebagai juara keirin di Kejohanan Trek Dunia pada Mac ini di Denmark.

“Saya mengimpikannya selepas terlepas pada tahun lepas walaupun sedar saingan yang sengit yang akan diberikan pelumba-pelumba terbaik dunia.

“Selaku pemenang jersi putih yang memungut mata terbanyak daripada empat siri Piala Dunia Klasik juga saya harus berhati-hati kerana tumpuan pelumba-pelumba lain akan terarah kepada saya pada perlumbaan acara itu nanti.

“Saya akan cuba memberikan yang terbaik kerana setiap kali turun berlumba saya tidak mahu menghampakan rakyat Malaysia dan pelbagai pihak yang mengharapkan kejayaan saya,” katanya.

Mengenai kejayaannya memenangi emas keirin di Beijing pada Sabtu lepas, Mohd Azizulhasni berkata, ia merupakan kemenangan terbesarnya setelah kecewa dalam dua siri Piala Dunia Klasik yang disertainya iaitu di Manchester di mana penyertaannya dibatalkan, dan di Melbourne, Australia yang hanya berjaya meraih pingat perak.

Hadiah kahwin Azizulhasni

Puas hati raih emas Beijing

KEJAYAAN jaguh berbasikal trek negara, Mohd Azizulhasni Awang meraih pingat emas dalam acara keirin di Piala Dunia Klasik di Beijing, China, adalah hadiah perkahwinan untuk bakal isterinya, Athiah Ilyana Abdul Samat yang akan dinikahinya, Sabtu ini.

Azizulhasni berkata sebelum ini Athiah Ilyana ada memintanya untuk memenangi emas sebagai hadiah perkahwinan.


"Saya cuma berjanji akan cuba sedaya upaya dan syukur akhirnya berjaya memenangi emas acara keirin selain meraih jersi putih," katanya sebaik tiba di Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa Kuala Lumpur (KLIA), semalam.

Namun Azizulhasni berkata, kejayaan itu tidak akan melekakannya, sebaliknya kini memasang impian untuk memenangi Jersi Pelangi, sekali gus sebagai juara keirin di Kejohanan Trek Dunia di Denmark, Mac ini.

"Itu impian saya selepas terlepas tahun lalu. Sebagai pemenang jersi putih yang memungut mata terbanyak daripada empat siri Piala Dunia Klasik, saya harus berhati-hati kerana tumpuan pelumba lain akan terarah kepada saya nanti.

Saya akan cuba memberikan yang terbaik kerana setiap kali turun berlumba, saya tidak mahu menghampakan rakyat Malaysia yang mengharapkan kejayaan saya," katanya.


Mengenai kejayaannya memenangi emas keirin di Beijing, Sabtu lalu, Azizulhasni berkata ia adalah kemenangan terbesarnya selepas kecewa dalam dua siri Piala Dunia Klasik yang disertainya di Manchester dan Melbourne.

Saya tidak suka kalah jadi di Beijing saya bertekad untuk menang walaupun terdapat beberapa halangan yang memang menguji kesabaran saya.

"Sebelum perlumbaan lagi berlaku kerosakan pada pedal basikal selain dihimpit oleh seorang pelumba Jepun semasa perlumbaan dan agak keletihan apabila memasuki peringkat akhir," katanya.

MOHD AZIZULHASNI WINS KEIRIN TITLE IN BEIJING

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 23 (Bernama) -- National track cyclist Mohd Azizulhasni Awang clinched the keirin event at the Beijing UCI Track World Cup Classic, the last leg of the Track Cycling World Cup.

The 22-year-old rider's win helped him redeem himself after failing to win two previous titles at the Track Cycling World Cup circuits in Manchester and Melbourne recently.

Riding with Australian professional outfit Bike Technologies Australia (BTA), Azizul outpaced five other riders, including Maximillian Levy, winner of a bronze medal in the 2008 Beijing Olympics and fellow countryman Josiah Ng.

The win, which gave him 12 points, saw him lead 24 other riders in the rankings and helped him regain his status as the top keirin rider in the world.

Mohd Azizulhasni will now wear the white jersey, accorded to the overall leader, during the March World Track Championships in Denmark.

The Terengganu lad who won a silver medal in the 200m sprint at the World Track Cycling Championships in Poland last year, would certainly regard the win as a pre-wedding gift, since he will be tying the knot next Saturday.

Currently, the rider is pursuing his studies at Deakin University, Australia in Bachelor of Commerce, majoring in Sports Management.

His personal best in Track Cycling World Cup 2009-2010 season was winning a silver in keirin during the Melbourne leg last year.

AZIZULHASNI kini melonjak ke tangga teratas kedudukan keirin Piala Dunia musim ini dengan 22 mata.

Josiah sekadar mampu menghuni tangga keenam Piala Dunia Klasik

PELUMBA harapan negara, Mohd Azizulhasni Awang menepati sasaran mempertahankan kejuaraan acara keirin Piala Dunia Klasik di Beijing, China, semalam manakala seorang lagi pelumba, Josiah Ng sekadar menghuni tangga keenam.

Kemenangan itu melonjakkan Azizulhasni ke tangga teratas kedudukan keirin Piala Dunia musim ini dengan 22 mata - sekali gus mengekalkan jersi putih juara dunia yang turut dirangkulnya musim lalu, manakala Josiah di tangga keempat dengan 13 mata.


Sebelum itu, Azizulhasni dan Josiah yang diletakkan dalam kumpulan berasingan ketika pusingan kelayakan, layak dengan masing-masing mengungguli sesi awal berkenaan. Juara pecut Olimpik 2008, Gregory Bauge turut mara apabila menduduki tangga kedua di belakang pelumba ranking teratas keirin musim ini, Maximillian Levy.

Dalam pusingan kedua, kedua-dua pelumba berjaya mencuri slot terakhir kumpulan masing-masing dan Bauge yang berada dalam kumpulan sama dengan Azizulhasni gagal layak.

Saingan semalam turut menyaksikan Akmal Amrun menyertai acara Scratch lelaki tetapi gagal layak dalam kelompok 12 pelumba terpantas perlumbaan 10 kilometer, 40 pusingan itu.

Pelumba wanita tunggal negara, Fatehah Mustapa yang gagal menyerlah dalam acara pecut kelmarin turun sekali lagi semalam dalam acara 500m ujian masa. Bagaimanapun dia gagal memperbaiki kedudukan dalam ranking Piala Dunia acara berkenaan apabila hanya menduduki tangga ke-15 perlumbaan di Beijing dan ke-20 keseluruhan musim ini dengan tiga mata.

Saingan hari terakhir hari ini menampilkan tiga pelumba, Josiah, Muhammad Edrus Yunos dan Azizulhasni turun dalam acara pecut.

Azizulhasni juara keirin Piala Dunia


AZIZULHASNI AWANG


KUALA LUMPUR – Hasrat tercapai. Impian jaguh basikal trek negara, Azizulhasni Awang menjuarai acara keirin pada saingan akhir Piala Dunia Klasik di Beijing, terlaksana, semalam.

Kemenangan itu sekali gus bermakna Azizulhasni bakal beraksi pada Kejohanan Dunia di Copenhagen, Denmark, Mac ini sebagai pemegang jersi putih, iaitu pendahulu keseluruhan acara keirin.

Pada perlumbaan akhir semalam, Azizulhasni yang mewakili pasukan Bike Technologies Australia, berjaya mengetepikan pelumba Australia, Jason Niblett di tempat kedua, manakala tempat ketiga diraih oleh pelumba pasukan Jayco, Daniel Ellis.

Bagaimanapun, hasrat untuk melihat dua lagi pelumba negara menaiki podium, tidak kesampaian apabila Josiah Ng, yang turut berjaya menyertai perlumbaan akhir semalam, sekadar menduduki tempat keenam.

Kejayaan semalam, bermakna, Azizulhasmi, yang terkenal dengan gelaran ‘The Pocketrocketman’ mengulangi pencapaian tahun lalu, apabila menewaskan Gregory Bauge dari Perancis pada perlumbaan akhir untuk meraih pingat emas.

Kemenangan di Beijing itu membolehkan, Azizulhasni, 22, memadamkan kekecewaannya pada dua perlumbaan Piala Dunia Klasik yang disertainya di Manchester, England dan Melbourne, Australia, apabila gagal menjuarai acara tersebut.

Berbanding musim lalu, dia memenangi dua siri Piala Dunia dalam acara keirin, iaitu di Melbourne (Siri Kedua) dan Beijing (Siri Keempat).

Kemenangan itu menyaksikan Azizulhasni menyarung jersi putih, selaku pendahulu pungutan mata keseluruhan acara keirin, apabila beraksi pada Kejohanan Trek Dunia di Pruskow, Poland tahun lepas.

Kedudukan keseluruhan selepas saingan akhir semalam, menyaksikan Azizulhasni menduduki tangga teratas dengan mengumpul 22 mata, walaupun pencabarnya, Levy Maximilian dari Jerman turut meraih mata yang sama, tetapi akur di tangga kedua kerana gagal mencatat sebarang kemenangan pada tiga aksinya di kejohanan tersebut.

Sebelum saingan terakhir Piala Dunia di Beijing, Azizulhasni mengumpul 10 mata untuk berada di kedudukan keenam, manakala pelumba dari Jerman itu mendahului di tempat pertama dengan 15 mata.

Josiah pula menduduki tangga keempat keseluruhan dengan mengutip 13 mata, dan akan menyertai Azizulhasni dalam acara pecut, hari ini.

Kejohanan Dunia tahun ini akan berlangsung di Copenhagen, Denmark pada 24 hingga 28 Mac depan.

Sementara itu pelumba tunggal wanita negara, Fatehah Mustapa yang beraksi dalam acara ujian masa 500 meter, sekadar menduduki tangga ke-15, dengan masa 36.142 saat.

Fatehah, yang mengambil bahagian dalam acara pecut individu kelayakan wanita kelmarin, sekadar menduduki tempat ke-22 dari 25 pelumba, dengan masa 12.174 saat, menyebabkan dia gagal ke pusingan suku akhir.

Azizulhasni tawan dunia


AZIZULHASNI menguasai saingan di Beijing.


JAGUH lumba basikal trek negara, Mohd. Azizulhasni Awang membuktikan beliau adalah antara pelumba terbaik dunia apabila menjuarai acara keirin pada siri keempat Piala Dunia Klasik di Beijing, China semalam.

Pelumba yang mewakili pasukan profesional Australia, Bike Technologies Australia (BTA), menewaskan lima lagi pelumba termasuk Maximillian Levy yang memenangi pingat gangsa dalam acara pecut berpasukan pada Sukan Olimpik 2008.

Kejayaan itu sekali gus membolehkan Mohd. Azizulhasni mengutip 12 mata selaku juara dan berada pada kedudukan pertama di kalangan 24 pelumba dengan mengumpul 22 mata keseluruhan.

Selain itu, ia juga membolehkan Mohd. Azizulhasni menyarung jersi putih selaku pendahulu pungutan mata keseluruhan apabila turun beraksi pada Kejohanan Trek Dunia di Denmark pada Mac ini.

Pada pusingan pertama semalam, pelumba kelahiran Terengganu itu berjaya memenangi saringan kedua di pusingan pertama sebelum menduduki tempat ketiga pada pusingan kedua.

Tempat ketiga itu bagaimanapun sudah cukup untuk membolehkan pelumba berusia 22 tahun tersebut menempah tiket ke pusingan akhir bersama-sama lima pelumba lain termasuk seorang lagi pelumba negara, Josiah Ng.

Kejayaan yang dicapai Mohd. Azizulhasni itu bagaimanapun gagal diikuti Josiah apabila sekadar menamatkan perlumbaan pusingan akhir di tempat keenam dan terakhir.

Kemenangan itu merupakan hadiah perkahwinan yang bermakna untuk Mohd. Azizulhasni yang bakal menamatkan zaman bujangnya Sabtu depan.

Pada Kejohanan Trek Dunia di Poland tahun lepas, pelumba tersebut gagal menyerlah dalam acara kegemarannya itu namun tetap tidak mengecewakan apabila meraih perak dalam acara pecut 200 meter.

Turut beraksi adalah Mohamad Hafiz Mohamed Sufian yang mencatatkan masa 1 minit 04.688 saat untuk sekadar berpuas hati di tempat ke-14 dalam acara satu kilometer ujian masa manakala Fatehah Mustapa pula di tangga ke-15 dalam acara 500 meter ujian masa.

Awang takes keirin gold at UCI World Cup in Beijing

The 22-year-old collected sprint silver in Pruszkow last year but in the Laoshan Velodrome, the site of the Olympic track cycling competition in 2008, it was the keirin in which he excelled.

He proved too strong for Australian rivals Jason Niblett and Daniel Ellis, who took silver and bronze respectively.

Awang's victory ensures he shares the overall World Cup series crown with Germany's Maximillian Levy as both cyclists finished with 22 points from the four events.

Elsewhere, the Netherlands' Willy Kanis was in electric form to take the 500m time trial gold ahead of China's Jinjie Gong and Australia's two-time world champion Anna Meares.

The Australian quartet of Luke Durbridge, Michael Hepburn, Leigh Howard and Travis Meyer took victory ahead of the Netherlands and New Zealand in the team pursuit but that was not enough to knock Great Britain, who came within inches of breaking the world record at the Manchester World Cup, off top overall spot.

In the men's one kilometre time trial there was more for the home crowd to shout about as Miao Zhang secured gold, while Canada's Zachary Bell took scratch race gold.

In the women's team sprint, Junhong Lin and Jinjie teamed up to complete a thoroughly impressive home competition for China, while women's points race gold went to Australia's Megan Dunn.

Azizul has World Cup in sight

By LIM TEIK HUAT

SEPANG: A place in the world championships is already guaranteed for Azizul Hasni Awang but the Malaysian track cycling dynamite still has unfinished business to tend to in the fourth and final round of the World Cup in Beijing beginning on Friday.

Azizul will be hoping to become the World Cup overall winner in keirin for the second consecutive season, which comes with the leader’s jersey to be worn at the world championships in Copenhagen in March.

All set: (from left) Azizul Hasni Awang, Mohd Edrus Yunos, Josiah Ng, Hafiz Sufian and Akmal Amrun ready to take part in the World Cup in Beijing which starts on Friday.

Azizul bagged silver ahead of compatriot Josiah Ng as they marked the first time Malaysia had two cyclists making it to the keirin final in the Australian leg of the World Cup in Melbourne last November.

The 10 points he earned in Melbourne put him in fourth position and still very much in contention to top the overall standings.

Azizul, who is riding for Australian trade team Bike Technologies, is trails leader and reigning world champion Maximilian Levy of Germany by five points.

He had a disappointing outing in the opening round in Manchester, suffering first-round elimination, and did not compete in the third leg in Cali last month.

“My mission in Beijing is to top the World Cup overall standings. A podium finish may be good enough to win it, depending on how the others fare,” said Azizul.

“I have been enjoying good form after winning three events at the Tasmanian Carnival during the Christmas period and I hope to carry on with the momentum.

“At least, I do not have to worry about qualifying for the world championships at this point as my ranking points after the silver medal ride in Melbourne should be enough to place me among the top 16.”

Azizul is an automatic qualifier for the individual sprint at the world championships by virtue of winning the Asian Championships gold medal in Indonesia last year.

Making things easier for Azizul is the absence of the British squad, led by triple Olympic champion Chris Hoy. The British riders are skipping the final round as they are in a training camp in Perth to prepare for the world championships.

Azizul, who rode to a historic silver in the sprint in last year’s world championships in Poland, made a brief stopover here on Sunday en route to Beijing.

Also travelling to Beijing were Josiah, Mohd Edrus Yunos, Hafiz Sufian, Akmal Amrun and Fatehah Mustapa.

The 22-year-old Azizul will put his bike and helmet aside after Beijing as he is returning to his hometown in Dungun to perform the akad nikah (marriage contract) with his fiancee, Athiah Ilyana Abdul Samat, on Jan 30.

“It is just the ceremony but marriage will only take place after the Commonwealth Games and Asiad at the end of the year,” he said

Azizulhasni yakin ulangi pencapaian emas keirin Piala Dunia



AzizulHasni (kiri) dan pelumba negara yang akan menyertai Kejohanan Piala Dunia Klasik, Idrus Yusnus, Josiah Ng, Hafiz Sufian dan Akmal Amrun, melaungkan kata-kata semangat sebelum berlepas ke Beijing dari KLIA, Sepang, semalam.


KUALA LUMPUR - Jaguh berbasikal trek negara, Azizulhasni Awang bertekad untuk memenangi acara keirin pada Piala Dunia Klasik di Beijing, China yang merupakan siri keempat dan terakhir, yang bermula Jumaat ini.

Jika berjaya, ia sekali gus dapat mengulangi pencapaiannya tahun lepas pada musim 2008-2009, apabila menewaskan Gregory Bauge dari Perancis pada pusingan akhir untuk meraih pingat emas.

Pelumba berusia 22 tahun itu berkata, ia merupakan peluang terakhirnya untuk memenangi kejohanan itu, setelah gagal berbuat demikian pada dua siri Piala Dunia Klasik yang disertainya sebelum ini, iaitu di Manchester, England dan Melbourne, Australia.

"Kemenangan di Beijing juga penting kerana saya berpeluang untuk meraih jersi putih, selaku pendahulu pungutan mata keseluruhan apabila beraksi pada Kejohanan Trek Dunia pada Mac ini di Denmark," katanya di sini, semalam.

Pelumba pasukan Bike Technologies Australia (BTA) itu, kini mengumpul 10 mata untuk berada di kedudukan keenam, manakala pelumba dari Jerman, Maximilian Levy mendahului di tempat pertama dengan 15 mata di dalam acara keirin.

"Saya sedar saingan pada siri terakhir Piala Dunia ini akan sengit kerana ramai pelumba-pelumba terbaik dunia akan turun beraksi untuk mencari tempat ke Kejohanan Dunia, namun saya cuba memberikan aksi terbaik," katanya.

Mengenai prestasinya pada siri Piala Dunia bagi musim 2009-2010, pelumba kelahiran Terengganu ini menyifatkan beliau masih konsisten terutamanya menjelang Sukan Asia dan Komanwel penghujung tahun ini.

"Walaupun terpaksa membahagikan masa dengan pengajian, serta kadang-kala saya terpaksa meninggalkan latihan untuk mengikuti kelas, ia tidak menjejaskan prestasi saya," katanya.

Bagi musim 2009-2010 Piala Dunia Klasik, pencapaian paling cemerlang Mohd Azizulhasni adalah memenangi pingat perak dalam acara keirin ketika siri kedua di Melbourne, Australia, pada November tahun lepas.

Berbanding musim sebelumnya (2008- 2009), Mohd Azizulhasni memenangi dua siri Piala Dunia di dalam acara keirin iaitu Melbourne (siri kedua) dan Beijing (keempat), yang menyaksikannya menyarung jersi putih selaku pendahulu pungutan mata keseluruhan apabila beraksi pada Kejohanan Trek Dunia di Pruskow, Poland tahun lepas.

Kecemerlangan pelumba itu, yang merupakan antara prospek emas Sukan Olimpik 2012, berterusan apabila meraih perak di dalam acara pecut pada Kejohanan Trek Dunia itu. - Bernama

Wedding bell rings as Azizul reaches final round

By Arnaz M. Khairul

MARRIAGE is on Azizul Hasni Awang's mind as he approaches the final round of the UCI World Cup in Beijing on March 22-24.
A week after he returns from the assignment, the 22-year-old Azizul and fiancee Athiah Ilyana Abdul Samat, 24, will perform their akad nikah on Jan 30.

"We're just performing the akad nikah, but our wedding ceremony will only take place in December, after I'm done with the Commonwealth Games," said Azizul.

Azizul will represent his BT Australia trade team in Beijing, leaving the team sprint duties in the national team to the new combination of Edrus Yunos, Josiah Ng and Hafiz Sufian.

Asked about his focus leading up to the meet, Azizul said he is far from distracted by the proximity of the event to one of the most important days in his life.

"Cycling is cycling and marriage is marriage. We have to have a balance. On the bike, cycling is all that's on my mind. Once I'm done with Beijing, I'll put my focus on personal matters," said Azizul.

Azizul won three events at the Tasmanian Christmas Carnival last month and is on a hot streak of form leading to the Beijing round of the World Cup.

"After the Tasmanian event, I just maintained my form with a lot of ergonomic and strength training in the gym.

"Only this week, we'll be training on the track and then head straight to Beijing," said Azizul.

Azizul, the World No 1 in the keirin the previous season, enters the final round ranked fourth after a slow start to the season.

The World Championships 200m sprint silver medallist is ranked 13th with just the Beijing round and the World Championships in Copenhagen in March remaining on the calendar.

Birthday boy Azizul’s wish is to roar loudly in Tiger year

By LIM TEIK HUAT
PETALING JAYA: The past year was a defining one for track cyclist Azizul Hasni Awang but the birthday boy could take it up to another level if he gets his acts right in the season ahead.
For Azizul, who turned 22 yesterday, his wish is to make his mark in three major assignments this year, which is also the Lunar Year of the Tiger – the world championships in Copenhagen in March, the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi in October and the Asian Games in Guangzhou in November.
Last year saw Azizul winning two World Cup gold medals in the keirin to clinch the overall title for the first time and he also helped Malaysia emerge as the Asian sprint team champions for the first time apart from retaining the individual title.
Eyeing history: Cyclist Azizul Hasni Awang has set his sights on winning medals during his debuts in the Commomwealth and Asian Games this year.
But the most memorable performance was his gutsy ride to take the fight to a powerful Frenchman, Gregory Bauge, before settling for the sprint silver medal in the world championships in Poland in March.
It was not only the country’s highest-ever achievement in track cycling but also the most outstanding for Malaysian sports last year and it puts Azizul as a front-runner for the national Sportsman of the Year award.
“Last year was a wonderful one and I had many good moments. But 2010 is going to be a bigger one for me as I will be taking part in the Commonwealth Games and Asian Games for the first time,” he said in a telephone interview from his training base in Melbourne.
“I hope to win a Commonwealth Games medal as no Malaysian track cyclist has done it before. As for the Asian Games, I will try to win a gold medal. I feel that we have the better opportunities to strike gold in the Asian Games as we are also in with the chance in the team sprint.”
Malaysia have only won four medals in Asian Games cycling. After a gold medal-winning effort in Bangkok in 1970, Malaysia had to wait for 32 years before Josiah Ng ended the medal drought with a silver in keirin in Busan.
Azizul will also be hoping to repeat his feat in this year’s edition of the world championships.
It will be another chance for him to aim for the world title and also to make up for the disappointment in the keirin where a wrong tactical move saw him narrowly missing out on the top six final.
Azizul added that it would be harder to accomplish his missions this year as he had to focus on his studies as well.
“That is something that I have to strike a balance,” said Azizul, who celebrated his birthday not only with his team-mates in Melbourne but also his girlfriend, Athiah Ilyana, who is also studying there.
Azizul’s next competition will be the final round of the World Cup in Beijing from Jan 22-24.
