Under a hail of flickering camera flash lights, Pandelela Rinong gives the thumbs-up like a true celebrity. She was launching the new Chevrolet Sonic at the National Aquatic Centre. With her is Dato’ Sri Ahmad Shabery Cheek (Minister of Youth and Sports) and Datuk Wira SM Faisal Tan Sri Nasiniuddin (Group Joint Executive Chairman and CEO of Naza Group of Companies).
I felt it was quite a poignant moment, considering that this is the very venue she trained daily on her long journey to Olympic victory and stardom.
Picture of the the Sonic in the (upcoming) next post.
