Olympic Council of Malaysia in full swing

The Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM) will be organising the fifth OCM-Pharmaton Ex-Internationals Golf Challenge on Tuesday, April 28, 2009, at the Kelab Golf Seri Selangor. The purpose of this event is to bring together former Malaysian international athletes from all sports and to provide a socially enjoyable environment for them to meet, interact and reminisce. As in previous years, about 100 ex-internationals are expected to participate in the event.

The inter-sport team competition will be for the Datuk Dr. M. Jegathesan Challenge Trophy.

The OCM's inaugural Ex-Internationals Golf Challenge was held in 2003 and later editions followed in 2004, 2005 and 2007.

In other news from Malaysia, the OCM has congratulated the Malaysian Handball Federation on its initiatives in modifying the local competition rules, following the start of the fourth National Handball League on March 22.

From the experience of the first three National Leagues, the Malaysian Handball Federation decided to modify the competition rules by reducing the playing time to two halves of 10 minutes each. The shortened playing time allowed each team to play two matches on the day, thus reducing cost and time and also producing better quality matches as the players played a much faster game.

"The Malaysian Handball Federation is to be congratulated on its initiatives in modifying the local competition rules, such as reducing the playing time, to suit the local environment," the OCM said in its weekly newsletter.

"As the standard of Handball in Malaysia is not at all high and is only being developed from scratch, there is no benefit in playing Handball in full compliance with the competition rules of World Cup or Olympic Games, or even Asian Games.

"Thus as beginners, the important objective is to allow the players easier access to competitions and to play more often. After all, it would take a long time before Malaysian Handball standards can reach even Asian standards."

The fourth National Handball League 2009 began at OCM Indoor Sports Arena, Jalan Hang Jebat, Kuala Lumpur. A total of 10 men’s teams, including a team comprising expatriates living in Malaysia, and 10 women’s teams are participating in the league.

The OCM has also recognised the efforts of the Malaysian Netball Association to promote the sport, ahead of the seventh Asian Netball Championship in Kuala Lumpur from June 21-29.

The Malaysian Netball Association, under the leadership of its President, YB Puan Suraya binte Yaacob, organized the National Netball Carnival 2009 at Stadium Juara, Bukit Kiara, Kuala Lumpur. The objective of the Carnival was to promote and introduce Netball as a family sport for physical activity for fun and health enhancement as well as an elite sport which is competed at World, Commonwealth and Asian levels.

Thus at the Carnival, Netball was introduced to boys teams, who competed among themselves. There was also modified Netball, such as 3 on 3 and 5 on 5 mix males and females, as well as competitions for Under 14 years children and Veterans.

Free medical examinations were provided for the participants, exhibitions were put up by the National Sports Council Malaysia and the Institute of Sports Malaysia and sports equipment companies.

Another objective of the Carnival was to publicize Malaysia hosting the seventh Asian Netball Championship at the above venue in the third week of June. Ten countries, including Malaysia, have registered to participate.

One of the aims of the Malaysian Netball Association is to include Netball in the Southeast Asian Games and the Asian Games. To achieve this aim, the Malaysian Netball Association has to popularize Netball not only in Southeast Asia but also in Asia.

The Carnival was officially declared opened by the Hon. Minister of Youth and Sports Malaysia, YB Dato’ Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
