Stars shine, losers whine

I was a participant of the Basic Sports Administration Course organised by the Ulu Kelang Recreational Club on March 25-28, 2010.

I was with a diversed group - from Venkat Kanangasingam who was then waiting for his SPM results to retiree Mok Choon How.

During a session, a parent was complaining to why a particular national association failed to help his son, blamed the national association for politics and corrupt practices and the list goes on.

It only needed one question from the facilitator to make that man ponder - "why are you so reliant over the national association?"

"You want the association to help you now and when your son becomes a star will you pay the association back?"

If you think those who run sports organisations are no angels, why associate with them?

Be a champion on your own accord. Nicol David has done it. So has Ong Beng Hee.

Did tennis star Serena Williams or Thai lass Noppawan Lertcheewakarn (pic) begged for help from their national associations?

HD says: Stars shine, the others whine.
