Group collaborates with KLCFC to enhance football players’ performance through genetic screening for peak athletic performance

PETALING JAYA (27 February)Malaysian Genomics Resource Centre Berhad (Malaysian Genomics or the Group), a leading genomics and biopharmaceutical specialist, is collaborating with KL City FC Sdn Bhd (KLCFC), the manager of the KL City FC football club, on the deployment of the Group’s genetic screening tests for peak athletic performance.

The collaboration will see the Group conducting analyses of players’ DNA and providing consultations to players and coaching staff on the genetic results in relation to practical opportunities to improve sports physiology, nutrition, strength and conditioning, injury prevention, and recovery. KLCFC will share with the Group feedback related to the results and outcomes of modifications to its team’s existing training, nutrition and recovery protocols after the incorporation of genetic results.

“I was amazed by the tremendous amount of information generated in my genetic screening report from Malaysian Genomics. In just the first review of my report, the Malaysian Genomics team and I were able to identify practical and immediately actionable changes to my supplement regime as well as warm-up exercises, which I would not have known to do without this test. I can’t wait to experience the positive impact it has on me on the pitch,” said KLCFC defender, Giancarlo Gallifuoco.
