OCM Sport Administrators Course (SAC)

The Sport Administrators Course was organised by the Sabah Ministry of Youth and Sports for its officials including others from National Sports Associations, State Sports Associations and other Government agencies. They comprised a cross section of sport officials, administrators and sports association office bearers. Fifty participants registered and finally thirty-nine (39) of them succeeded to complete the course. The Course was held in the Seminar Hall, Palace Hotel, Kota Kinabalu.

The two facilitators were Mr. Stanley Charles Louis and Mr. Peter Chee Nyuk Min and from their report and the evaluation of participants, the Course was successfully run and the following points were presented:

• Organizing a sport seminar programme such as this in East Malaysia has its own peculiarity and challenges.

• The facilitators had to ensure that the presentations and modules addressed all participants’ expectations.

• The participants felt the activities were stimulating, meaningful and informative and also related to managerial and administrative skills.

• The participants also felt that the course conducted was long overdue and was really good. Having been in their current sport positions for a good number of years, some of the participants expressed that it wasn’t always that the participants were given the opportunity to attend courses such as this Olympic based course.

• Some quotes from the participants:

“The strategies undertaken by the facilitators were well received and participants expressed their appreciation”

“The general knowledge and experiences shared by the lectures are truly priceless”

Malaysian Fencing Federation (MFF)

The Malaysian Fencing Federation will hold its Malaysia Open Fencing Championship 2012 from 13 to 15 July 2012 in the Indoor Sports Arena, Level 3, Wisma OCM. After 5 years since the last Malaysia Open in 2007, MFF has revived the Championship, which was well attended by fencers from many countries in the past. The break was due to some problems faced within MFF.

To date, there are about 200 participants from Singapore, Japan, Thailand and Indonesia to name a few. Majority of the participants are from Singapore. MFF will see the action of fencers in the Individual Events for Epee, Foil and Sabre in the three days. The organisation this year sees a different set-up without the team events.

We wish the Malaysian fencers the best of luck in putting up a good ‘fight’ against their neighbouring countries.
