Structured NSAs

THE Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM) believe there should be a proper organisation structure and pay scale for employees of the National Sports Associations (NSA).

This was in reference to the “Developing the capacity of National Sport Associations” report by Brian Minikin and Prof Leigh Robinson from the University of Stirling.

OCM would like to see NSAs stand on their own feet and be financially sound to avoid interference by other parties especially the National Sports Council (NSC).

Apparently, Malaysia Athletic Union deputy president Karim Ibrahim quit as chairman for the national body’s coaching committee after complaining the coaches were “not listening to him as they were all under the payroll of NSC.”

Read all about it in today's Mailsport.

HD says: About time.


  1. Precursor to...."I'm not chairman of the coaching commitee....I don't know anything about the Bulgarian doctor and doping."

  2. The athletes don't like him;HE WON'T RESIGN. The coaches don't like him, HE WON'T RESIGN
    The reporters don't like him,HE WON'T RESIGN
    the fans don't like him,HE WON'T RESIGN
    WHY? BUT the secretaries like him!

  3. heheh..again you tried to pin down all problem created by the great karim to NSC. Why?? did you know that karim is the most powerful person in KOM and all decision he made supported by his cronies in KOM?? did you know all the coaches didnt like him because his arrogant behaviour and didnt respect the coaches. did you know he will choose only athlete and coaches who obey his command not because they deserve to go for overseas assignment.

    please do some honest report la dont blame other parties for karim fiasco.

  4. Honest reporting is the reason why certain individuals do not fancy me.

    Cheers to whoever you are and happy new year.

  5. I know you are honest and want to report the right thing but please sometimes you tend to side. Anyway good write up in malaymail. Keep up the good job

  6. HD...I'm with you. While Karim acts like Napoleon....NSC is filled with Little Napoleons....Anon 5:06.....Development is done by MSSM and NSC! KOM is bad because it brings the sport down. Low number of athletes...Athletes not in programs find little motivation to train with bare necessities...while the chosen one get everything ...and then the chosen ones quit when they get what they want.

What went wrong with KL SEA Games?

145 gold medals.
It's the best Team Malaysia has ever achieved since the inception of the SEAP Games in1959.
The 29th edition of the SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur ended yesterday. The opening ceremony dazzled those at the stands and viewers at home while the performances during the closing ceremony yesterday jogged plenty of musical memories to many.
Our athletes, the real superheroes, brought smiles through their heroic display. They made everyday a happy day.
Kudos to the officials - from the coaches, the National Sports Institute and National Sports Council - for their hard work in ensuring our athletes perform to their best.
But it was not all memorable.

'World fashion disaster' in KL

World Fashion Week Asia 2017 ended over the weekend.

And the launch on Friday at Palace of the Golden Horses at Mines Resort City just outside Kuala Lumpur turned out to be a forgettable night.


It was poorly organised.

Just as many are trying to get over the nightmare witnessed throughout the KL SEA Games, the organiser of World Fashion Week Asia 2017 has made it look like Malaysians seem to have lost it when it comes to hosting major events and hospitality.

Here's why.

Royal protocol ignored

1. The Sultanah of Terengganu Sultanah Nur Zahirah was invited to grace the event.
    a. There was no holding room for the Sultanah and VIPs accompanying her.
    b. The Sultanah was invited on stage without anyone accompanying her there (a big NO NO if anyone knows protocol involving royalty).
    c. The event dragged on till 11.30pm, way past the cut off point of the very many events I've attended with members of the royal family present.
   d. The Sultanah was forced to walk all t…

Klang run 'illegal', says Sports Commissioner

UPDATE (Dec 11; 11.58am): Sporting events approved by Sports Commissioner's Office will be posted on the Youth and Sports Ministry's website starting Dec 14, as revealed by the Sports Commissioner in her statement today. I'm glad the last point of my observation (as per posting right below) has been addressed.


UPDATE (10.57pm): A Twitter user had sent me a link by the organiser of the Klang Heritage Marathon 2017. It states that the marathon has been "postponed to Oct 14, 2018" and that they have been victims of fake news and will lodge reports with the authorities against materials with elements of defamation or fake news. Read the full statement, posted on Dec 2, here.
