Kicking with fun

It's just great to see youngsters engaging in sports.

While many are fixated with their computers, electronic games and television, there are others who do find the time to get involved in grassroots sports.

One such programme is the Nestle Koko Krunch Junior Taekwondo Championship.

Olympic Council of Malaysia president Tunku Imran Tuanku Jaafar will officiate the launch of the 6th edition at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil on Tuesday (Jan 22, 2011 - 10.45am onwards). Members of the Press just received the invitation from former international M.Vasugi.

While the competitors gear up for the tournament, let's watch the 'best taekwondo fight ever!' (sic)

HD says: Fact of the day - NST sports editor Vijesh Rai and his lovely wife Vasugi used to coach The Malay Mail's assistant news editor Pearl Lee and former Mailsports reporter Jonathan Fernandez during their schooling days. Small world.

Football journo's accreditation card retracted for being 'overly critical'

Four Four Two journalist Vijhay Vick's accreditation card to cover the M-League has been "retracted" by Football Malaysia LLP last night.

The letter, signed by FMLLP chief executive officer Kevin Ramalingam, stated:
"We are open to criticism by the public, however, it has been brought to FMLLP's attention that you have been overly critical of the Malaysian League and have made misleading statements and or shared misleading statements made by third parties.

Vijhay, in responding to the letter he received last night, said: 
"I was shocked (to receive the letter). I would like to know which articles of mine that are overly critical of the league."
It is best if FMLLP explained its definition of being "overly critical".
