If this doesn’t bring tears to your eyes, we don’t know what else will.
Uploaded by the official Facebook page of the Kuala Lumpur 2017 SEA Games and ASEAN Para Games, the video features athletes from various races and walks of life preparing for the games, with focus on their struggles. It also highlights your every day Malaysians, be it the coaches, the cook at the local “mamak”, the “roti man” passing by, or the caring neighbour, coming together to help push our athletes towards victory.
Pain, love, tears, joy, but above all, unity. It truly does take a nation to raise a champion.
