Sarawak wondergirl Esmelda Grecia Menti Alfred Geling who won two gold, two silver and one bronze medals for Sarawak and was crowned Sportswoman of the Sukma XVI Games in Bukit Jalil may not be going to Kuala Lumpur to continue her trainings under elite coaches.

This was due to her parents not wanting her to be far away from them for long periods of the year, as she is still very young. The Sarawak State Sports Council (MSNS) in a response said that they will respect the wishes of the parents.

The 13 year old Esmelda was invited to join a four year training stink under the National Sports Council after she impressed officials at the recently concluded SUKMA.
