The Executive Board & Council of the Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM) and its affiliates express their deepest condolences to the family of the late Tuan Haji Kamaruddin Maidin.

The late Tuan Haji Kamaruddin Maidin represented Malaya in Long Jump at the 1960 Rome Olympic Games, together with Y.Bhg. Datuk Dr. M. Jegathesan and Y.Bhg. Datuk Shahruddin Ali.

He was the National Long Jump and Triple Jump Champion and record holder for many years. At the Southeast Asia Peninsular (SEAP) Games he was the gold medalist and record holder in the Long Jump event from 1959 to 1967 and the gold medal in the Triple Jump event in 1965 and the silver medal in 1967. He represented Malaysia in the 1962 and 1966 Asian Games held in Jakarta and Bangkok respectively.

After he retired from competition, the late Tuan Haji Kamaruddin Maidin became an athletics coach and official and was instrumental in coaching a couple of his six sons to be national athletes. He and his wife, Puan Hajah Rajemah Hj. Sheikh Ahmad, who is also a former national athlete, having participated in the Asian Games and a medalist in the SEAP Games, have been very active in developing athletics in the late Tuan Haji Kamaruddin Maidin’s home state of Terengganu. Their hard work has made Terengganu State to be one of the strongest state in Malaysia in athletics.

The demise of the late Tuan Haji Kamaruddin Maidin is a great loss to Malaysian sport, especially to athletics.
