He was the first track cyclist to represent Malaysia at the Athens Olympics 2004 with the best Malaysian record to date, securing a position in the keirin final, earning him the Malaysian Sportsman of the Year 2004 award. As a nine-time UCI Track World Cup medalist, he has also won several Asian Games and Asian Championship medals.
It was an honor for Josiah to be invited by the Japan Keirin Association (JKA) for the Kokusai Keirin (Invitational Keirin) in 2005, 2006, 2009, and 2010 multiple-months stint for professional keirin racing. In 2010, Josiah won a gold medal in the keirin at the New Delhi Commonwealth Games.

He was responsible for securing the services 3 out of 4 key coaching staff currently in charge of the world class cycling program.
Josiah also owns 5bling.com. He realised that world class track cyclists needed a specially designed glove to meet their specific needs. He set out to design a glove that met the tough demands and technical elements of the sport. As a result, more than half of the world’s top track cyclists started using his technically cool glove. They included World and/or Olympic Champions.
Following a coffee shop idea, Josiah formed Specta Technologies LLC, and teamed up with Outerspace design group from Melbourne, Australia to develop a cool looking dual camera unit with features that every cyclist and outdoor athlete would want.
