malaysian cycling ace azizulhasni awang wins gold at 16th asiad

Malaysia's Azizulhasni Awang won the gold medal in the keirin cycling event on Wednesday at the Asian Games here.

Teammate Josiah Ng bagged the silver.

Azizul's victory breaks a 40-year gold medal drought for Malaysia in the cycling event in the Asian Games.

The last time Malaysia won gold medals in Asian Games cycling was in the 1970 Bangkok Asiad, when Ng Joo Ngan won the individual road race event and the late Daud Ibrahim was victorious in the 1600m massed start.
