FORMER national hockey skipper Mohamad Abdul Hadi, 51, had a glittering career.

Played at 1992 Barcelona Olympics.

1990 Beijing Asian Games bronze medal winner. Semifinalist four years earlier in Seoul.

Gold medallist at 1987, 1989 and 1993 SEA Games.

Yesterday, he marked another proud milestone:

One of 34 torchbearers at KL 2017 torch run in his hometown Parit Buntar.

We asked him:

To rank his best career achievements.

If carrying the SEA Games torch was another highlight.

His reply: “Of course! When invited (for the run), we feel like our services are still remembered by our friends.

“Many also hope we come here to give our full backing to our future athletes who are competing for the nation.”

Thanks skipper!
