Have you signed up for the Spartan Race Malaysia: Putrajaya Trifecta Weekend coming up this 28th and 29th of July? If you did, you may see Minister of Youth and Sports Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman running along beside you!
Spartan Race Malaysia just issued a challenge to Malaysia’s youngest Minister: “We would like to invite you to come and experience Spartan Race Malaysia”, organisers said in a Facebook post.
Syed Saddiq was sworn in on 16th of July as the Member of Parliament for Muar, after winning the seat in the 14th General Elections.
Millions around the world have conquered a Spartan Race — tens of thousands in Malaysia. Now, we want to challenge you…
The race organisers said in the post:
“Millions around the world have conquered a Spartan Race — tens of thousands in Malaysia. Now, we want to challenge you to come and conquer it.
Bro Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman, we would like to invite you to come and experience Spartan Race Malaysia. Are you up for the challenge?
Help us spread the word. Make it happen, Spartans! Share this and we might just see our new Minister of Youth and Sports on the course with us!
Netizens have been quick to throw their support behind the challenge, calling on the Minister, who’s 25, to participate.
Here’s a photo of the former Youth and Sports Minister, Khairy Jamaluddin, who’s 42 now, taking part in the Spartan Race in 2015, when he was 39.
SHAPE Malaysia, who’s also taking part in the obstacle race, is certainly looking forward to meeting him and, hopefully, getting a selfie with the new Minister! We can’t wait!
At the time this article was published, Syed Saddiq has yet to reply. We’ll be keeping tabs!
