Despite coming back from a long injury lay off, Brunei's female Olympian managed to win 3 golds and 1 silver. "I was just going with the flow for this competition because I just recovered from an injury," she told The Brunei Times.
"I was out of training for about seven months due to a tendon injury and I only got back to it three months ago.
"I wish to see more locals come forward for the competitions and I have seen a lot of potential (at this meet).
"Some of them already train with us.
"They just need to continue with their determination and keep (up) with their consistency," added Maziah who ran for Brunei Muara.
