Two Malaysian para-cyclists, Muhd Afiq Rizan Afify and Muhd Khairul Adha Rasol finished top 3 at the recent 2017 UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships.

The tournament took place in Los Angeles from the 2nd until 5th of March.

Muhd Afiq Rizan Afify and Muhd Khairul Adha Rasol competed in the 200 metres sprint finals and garnered bronze.

Their win garnered the attention of Youth and Sports minister Khairy Jamaluddin, who retweeted the news on his Twitter page to show support for the duo.
