Be liberated

"It's good that the government is decreasing its funds to sports associations. Sports bodies will need to scout for their own funds instead."

That was uttered by Olympic Council of Malaysia president Tunku Imran Tuanku Jaafar at the launch of the National Junior Taekwondo Championships in Bukit Jalil earlier today.

I agree with Tunku Imran.

It is high time for sports bodies to break free from government funding and be liberated. Tax payers money should go back to the masses and not just the elite few.

Also, when associations stand on their own feet, they can do away with sports officials from the ministry meddling into their affairs.

UPDATED (Feb 23, 2011, 12.17pm): Read Tunku Imran's take in today's Mailsports.

HD says: The meaning of Liberated: tr.v. lib·er·at·ed, lib·er·at·ing, lib·er·ates. To set free, as from oppression, confinement, or foreign control.
