Last update:  26 February 2010


Shirley Yap and JegathesanAn outstanding sportsman in his younger days, Olympian Datuk Dr. M. Jegathesan is still very much involved on the international sports scene in his fight against doping. Apart from being the Deputy President of the Olympic Council of Malaysia (since 2002) and holding a slew of senior positions in sports medicine, he is also been a member of the IOC Medical Commission (since 2007). 

When Jega was in Canada to officiate in the Winter Olympic Games recently, he took the opportunity to catch up with Shirley Yap who resides in Vancouver. Albeit short, the meeting was a much anticipated and nostalgic one.  From the photograph on the right, you can see that Shirley has not changed much since school days 50 years ago!

Whilst in Vancouver, Jega also took the opportunity to catch up with fellow athlete Arthur Yap (ACS Class of 57) and attended a huge gathering of Malaysians and Singaporeans living in Vancouver at a Malaysian Chinese New Year Dinner & Dance.
