This morning our nation lost another star in the sports fraternity when Chua Boon Huat died in an accident occurred at the Lebuhraya Damansara Puchong.
Boon Huat was recently earned a recall to the national squad by Head Coach, Paul Revington. He was keen to do well in the upcoming Asia Cup 2013, scheduled to be held in Ipoh later this month. The winner of this tournament will qualify automatically for the 2014 World Cup.
The Malacca born player came to prominence when he played for Malaysia as an 18 year old at the 1998 Commonwealth Games in Kuala Lumpur after being given the chance by then Malaysia Head Coach, Paul Lissek.
His was an untimely death and the nation will mourn the loss.
