It was a sunny day on 19 May 2012, when the second leg of Malakoff University Duathlon Series 2012 (MUDS 2012) which had been held at Universiti Putra Malaysia, Serdang, Selangor. This was a second trip for Kakithoners went to the race fully sponsored by Malakoff Corporation Berhad.
The team show the increased number of participants, as Mr Blackopoulos participated in Men's Open Category, Jiha in Women's Open Category, Wong & Syamsul Bahtiar (Men's Uni), Lau & first timer Afiedah (Women's Uni), Mixed Team (Afiq, Amirul & Tiang), last minutes withdrawn mixed team (Fikry, Gan Chau, Li Ting).

Wong as Kakikacau! Jiha lose to white chick
The result, Wong once again being a Kakikacau for Universiti Pertahanan Nasional Malaysia domination when he stole the fifth place in Men's Uni Category. Meanwhile, Jiha still on the podium when stood on second runners-up after lost to two white female racer. In Women's Uni Category, Lau & Afiedah seal 8th and 9th places, while our mixed team got fourth place, less a minute to kacau UPNM domination on the podium.
As a bottom line, Kakithon this year is not a strong contender for top podium finish. As we are now more concern in spreading & promoting the word "DUATHLON" among students in UTM campus. To compete & finished the race, is the main focus to keep an interest & implement 'duathlete' lifestyle among newbies. But we're still on the main track to be kakikacau for UPNM podium domination!
