All athletes should notice that members of the Myanmar sports contingent shall shoulder the national duty to secure victories in all events so as to uplift the prestige of the State through the triumph of sports, said Chairman of the State Administration Council Prime Minister Senior General Min Aung Hlaing in handing over the flag to ensure victory to the Myanmar sports teams which will take part in the XXXI SEA Games in Viet Nam, at Wunna Theikdi Gymnasium B in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday morning.
In his speech, the Senior General said if Myanmar sports teams secure a larger number of medals in the games, they could change the victorious history of the Myanmar sports contingent.
He urged them to make utmost efforts in the sports as all citizens wish to see Myanmar’s State flag hoisting due to winning in the events.
