“Imagine that one day, we will be able to hear our national anthem being played and see our flag

being raised during the Olympics because we won a gold medal competing in the 3-On-3 Basketball events” said Senior Marketing Manager, KFC (B) Sdn Bhd. Jonathan Bong.

Making a special appearance at the clinic yesterday were local-born international artiste Wu Chun, who had flown in the night before from Houston, USA after watching the NBA All Star basketball game, and a group of Taiwan artistes such as Blackie, Wilbur Pan and SHE’s Selina, to name a few.

“It was a good experience for me as we want to bring some of the things that I saw at the NBA into our own 3-On-3 basketball tournament” said Wu Chun.

The team disclosed that the KFC Fitness Zone 3-On-3 Streetball Challenge for Season 1 (March 24 toMarch 31) is now open. it will take place at the Airport Mall

Registration forms are available at all Fitness Zone outlets and KFC outlets in Gadong Central, Airport Mall, The Mall and KFC Seria.

Closing date for registration is March 10. Organisers hope teams can register early so there will be ample time to make extra limited edition jerseys for participating teams.

Jonathan Bong said during the first basketball tournament inside a shopping mall, players said they love their tournament because it’s different and they like the surreal feeling of playing in the NBA because it makes them feel like a real pro.
