Some dude by the name of Aricco Jumitih represented the country in the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi.
He took the gold medal for the 62 kg weightlifting event.
But he was seen wearing a vest bearing the flag of his home state Sabah, instead of the Jalur Gemilang usually worn by national athletes participating in international events.
That has irked some of the bigwigs.
The irony is they barely give two hoots about East Malaysia, except to exploit them politically and economically.
Even when they actually do the nation proud, they get their asses stomped on.
You just can't win sometimes.
