Ramli Amat, who represented Malaysia in the 1976 Montreal Olympics and was considered one of that nation's finest sprinters, died from a stroke Saturday. He was 47.
Ramli collapsed while jogging in a park on Labuan Island in eastern Malaysia on Saturday, according to fellow Malaysian athlete Jimmy Tan.
Ramli held a 25-year-old national record in the 200-meter dash.
In recent years, Ramli had held a senior security post at the Malaysia Airlines branch in Labuan, where he was born. He remained active in sports and established an association for veteran athletes on the island.
