In 11 - 21 September 1998, our country, Malaysia has successfully hosted the most prestigious sporting event ever, the 16th Commonwealth Games.

The Games Mascot is Wira (‘warrior’ in English), the loveable orang-utan. Orang-utans are found in the jungles of Sabah and Sarawak. Highly intelligent, the orang-utan characterises charm and sporting ability; Wira outstandingly project the personality of Malaysia as a host.
