Pandelela To Study Sports Science At UM

KUALA LUMPUR:  — National diving queen Pandelela Rinong Pamg will pursue her study in the field of sports science at Universiti Malaya (UM) and is currently awaiting conformation of admission to the university.

The Olympic bronze medalist said she had chosen to pursue her study in UM as the university was closer to her training centre in Bukit Jalil.

“I have transport issue. If I were to study in a university located far from Bukit Jalil, I will have problems to travel between the two locations.

“Furthermore, my teammate, Brian (Nickson Lomas) is also studying there (UM),” she told reporters after attending the launch of new Oris wrist watch here today.

Present was her fellow Olympian, track cyclist Mohd Azizulhasni Awang.

Earlier, Pandelela and Mohd Azizulhasni each received the newly-launched wrist watch, which was given in honour of their success and contributions to the sports industry, especially at the recently-concluded London Olympics 2012.

The 19-year-old diver also expressed hope that she would be able to commit to the study field of her choice and that she would be able to popularise and contribute more to the development of diving sport in the future.
