SINGAPORE - In Belgrade, a city that sits along one of Europe's most famous rivers the Danube, Singaporean kickboxer Nazri Sutari charted new waters for local kickboxing.
He picked up two medals at the Serbia Open on Sunday (March 20) which were worth more than their weight in silver (men's Under-74kg kick-light) and bronze (U-69kg) respectively.
After all, they were the first ones ever won by a Singaporean at any meet sanctioned by global body World Association of Kickboxing Organisations (Wako).

DUA tahun adalah waktu yang agak lama dan dalam tempoh itu, pelbagai perubahan boleh berlaku.
Bagi petinju tendang Singapura Nazri Sutari, perubahan yang ketara sejak memenangi pingat emas dalam sambo di Sukan SEA Manila pada Disember 2019 - yang pertama buat negara dalam sukan seni mempertahankan diri itu - adalah sosok tubuhnya yang lebih tegap dan kurus.

SINGAPORE - Over the years, it has been a common occurrence for national kickboxer Nazri Sutari to raise the funds he needs for competitions overseas.
As part of fundraising efforts by the Kickboxing Federation of Singapore, the kickboxing coach has taken to conducting extra training sessions and he would also save as much as he could to make sure he had enough to cover his travel expenses.
But last year, Nazri was able to compete at the Wako World Senior and Master Kickboxing Championships in Venice and more - he also participated in a six-week training camp in Serbia - thanks to the support he received from the Temasek Foundation Inspire Fund for Athletes.
