NATIONAL Archery Association of Malaysia president Tan Sri Abdul Khalil Abd Mutalib has been appointed Chef-de-Mission for the New Delhi Commonwealth Games after Datuk Nadzmi Salleh turned down his appointment.

Nadzmi, in a letter to the Olympic Council of Malaysia, cited his health and commitments as chairman of Proton Holdings Berhad for declining the appointment.
