KUANTAN: The Pahang Sports Council shooting range and complex will be upgraded in preparation for the Sukma Games in 2012 to be hosted by the state.
Pahang Shooting Association deputy president Tok Muda Tengku Razman Shah Tengku Ahmad said the two-storey building costs about RM14mil and would be used as the main venue for the Sukma’s shooting event.
He said besides the upgrading of the shooting range, the complex will be equipped with better amenities for the comfort of athletes.

“This is a very significant development and we hope the new building will help to promote the sport among the people.
“Pahang has produced good results in previous competitions and we hope to churn out more potential shooters,” he said after opening the inaugural Tengku Razman Shah trophy shooting competition in Indera Mahkota recently.
Also present were vice-presidents Datuk Johnny Ch’ng Ewe Gee and Shamsul Zumir Shahrir, secretary Nordin Che Lah and assistant secretary Jerry Lim.
In detailing the achievements of the state, Tengku Razman said the Pahang contingent was the overall Sukma’s champion in Malacca last year.
He said all 24 athletes won a medal each — 15 golds, seven silvers and two bronzes — with nine games records broken.
On a separate matter, Tengku Razman said the association was in the midst of drafting programmes and activities, in addition to hold regular shooting competitions to attract more members to join the association.
He said the association was set up in 1976 and as of now, has 300 active members.
“We are among one of the active shooting associations in the country and hope to increase our membership in the coming years,” he said, adding that the association also received strong support from the state and the council.
Tengku Razman said at present, a 20-acre shooting range in Bukit Rangin owned by the association was being used by members for training and target practice.
He said plans were in the pipeline to hold joint competitions with enforcement agencies every three months.
Later, he presented prizes to the winners witnessed by Shamsul and Ch’ng.
The winner for the competition was Zulazman Ramli while Muhammad Ridwan Nasrul and Zanzuri Kamal Mat Isa came in second and third, respectively.
A total of 30 participants took part, including several media representatives.
