There were also video and Power-point presentations on selected topics of the values and a face to face interaction with a triathlon athlete.
The Workshop was conducted by Ms. Moira Tan, the Hon. Assistant Secretary of OCM and Dato’ Sieh Kok Chi, Hon. Secretary of OCM who was present as an observer.

Course is very good but the duration is too short, Should give explanation how to ‘implant’ the five values in the class, More practical examples on how to organize programmes, projects, festivals by adapting values of Olympic, t-shirts to be provided to participants, Time constraint and lecturer rushing to complete.
