Ahmad Arif Ibrahim earned a SEA Games nomination – during Ramadan

Educity, MALAYSIA – After crossing the finish line at the Triathlon Singapore mixed relay trial on Saturday morning, Ahmad Arif Ibrahim, went back to his room to sleep without drinking or eating.

New faces notch SEA Games nominations at the Triathlon Singapore mixed relay trials
