THE General Manager of Malaysian Athletics Federation M. Letchumanan has tendered his resignation.

In his resignation letter sighted by this website addressed to MAF President Dato Muthu dated 9 June, he cited health problems as the reason for resigning.

Letchumanan assumed the position on August 15 last year after Muthu and his team were voted into power in the MAF elections held in June.

Though the letter states it was health reasons, the undercurrent actually paints a different scenario.

It seems that he was pressured to leave but though these are unconfirmed reports.

Still, the position of the MAF General Manager will remain a hot seat as long as office bearers do not allow them to work independently.

  1. What a shame General Manager of Malaysian Athletics Federation M. Letchumanan has resigned.
    In our experience of dealing with him he was professional and patient and respectful.
    Information for athletes is difficult with MAF, MAF does not have a website, its one-time website ( is now a travel blog. Its Facebook account was last updated in 2014. And its communication with MAF personnel like M. Letchumanan that becomes even more vital when information portals are so limited.
    Without knowing the internal issues its a shame to lose the very people who try hard to support our athletes – who give federations like MAF the reason to be part of sports.
    We wish M. Letchumanan health and every success in his future endeavors and thank him for his service, and assistance to us personally.
