Hockey to deliver four golds in 2017 SEA Games

KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Hockey Confederation (MHC) have promised to deliver all four hockey gold medals at stake in next year’s SEA Games, which will be held here.

MHC president Datuk Seri Subahan Kamal made this commitment after the annual general meeting on Saturday.

The four golds are from the men and women’s field and indoor events.

“We (The MHC) promise that we will deliver all four medal at stake – field and indoor for the men and women – at the SEA Games next year,” vowed Subahan.

“We have set up a task force to ensure that we have well-prepared teams so that we can keep our promise.”
The task force will be headed by MHC technical director Terry Walsh.

“Terry will draw up the programme and decide on who takes charge of the teams for the SEA Games. We have to start work immediately ... I want the task force to ensure that every possible step is taken to ensure we are winners in 2017,” said Subahan.

KUCHING: Following their good performance in the recently concluded Sukma XVIII and various national tournaments, 10 Sarawak Taekwondo Association (WTF) exponents have been called up for training and selection to the national team.

They are Monica Sharma, Rebecca John Nedek, Audrey Nu Alexander Mula, Caren Li Ying Ning, Nurul Nur Hafizza, Tan Yen Ming, Mohd Amirul Juwanda for kyorugi and Augustine Rudy, Nurul Hidayah Abdul Karim and Marylyne Bungan Lian for poomsae.

They have flown to Kuala Lumpur to attend the national training camp and selection for next year’s SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur.

The team was accompanied by state technical chairman-cum-chief instructor Tan Check Joon.

Monica was the Sukma finweight champion while Rebecca had displayed her talent since she joined the state squad last year.

Audrey was gold medallist as well as best female athlete in Sukma XVIII taekwondo competition while Caren Li was Sukma silver medallist and gold medallist at last week’s 7th TM-NSC-Milo National Remaja Championship in Kuala Lumpur.

Nur Hafizza won the heavyweight title at the recent Sukma.

Yen Ming, the heavyweight champion and best male athlete in Sukma XVIII, also captured gold medals in various national and international competitions last year while Sukma silver medallist Amirul have won several national sparring titles since 2012.

Augustine and Nurul Hidayah won Sarawak’s first gold medal Sukma XVIII in the mixed pair category while Marylyne was the individual female gold medalist.

“I am glad with our team overall performance, they had showed a good fighting spirit, proving that their hard work in training and our coaches effort had been worthwhile.

“I am confident both our male and female potential will deliver in the forthcoming SEA Games,” said Sarawak Taekwondo Association president Mohamad Salleh Sani.

“I hope they will spur the rest of the junior athletes to train harder and be eligible to represent the state and nation in the very near future,” he added.
