As SEA Games 2019 commenced yesterday (30 November) in the Philippines, Malaysia already won a gold medal in the Wushu category. And now we have our second gold medalist — Sam Jee Lek (Lego Sam) who represented Malaysia in the men’s break dancing category today (1 December)!
The member from Malaysia’s pioneering dance crew — Katoon Network, Lego Sam definitely made Malaysians proud by making our country heard in the dance scene.
According to The Star, Sam slammed the category by winning the maximum of 12 points. Many of his friends were rooting for him at the competition, and all of them congratulated and cheered when he stood on the podium with the gold medal around his neck. Not just that, the 24-year-old is also the first Malaysian b-boy to bring home a gold medal in the SEA Games!
Here’s the video of his performance at the competition (uploaded by Astro Arena HD on Instagram):
After his victory, Sam expressed gratitude in his Facebook post by thanking his family and friends. He also mentioned that now that he finally made it, he hoped that the Malaysian government can notice the positive efforts and achievements in break dancing, and to support Malaysian b-boys to have a better future as dancers.
Congratulations for “breaking” the Malaysian record, Lego Sam!
