SEA Games cyclist killed in training accident
IPOH: Cyclist Nurfaradhini Zakaria, who represented Malaysia in the 2009 Laos SEA Games team, was killed in fall during a training session with five other team members.
The 10.20am incident Tuesday at Jalan Teluk Sena, Parit, some 50km from here, also saw fellow cyclist Shahrul Nizam Che Shamsuddin suffering from a dislocated left shoulder. He was admitted into the Seri Manjung hospital for treatment.
Malaysian National Cycling Federation deputy president Datuk Naim Mohamad said Nurfaradhini, 27, suffered serious head injuries in the accident.
“She was first sent to a nearby clinic where she slipped into coma and was subsequently sent to the Changkat Melintang Hospital,” he said.
Nurfaradhini, from the Royal Malaysian Navy personnel, was later admitted into the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital here, where she died at 12.15pm.
