SEA Games "Its time for Malaysia to go 1000 - up in GOLD medals"

Malaysia sport has gone places in the past decade in a way which few would have imagined possible when the first eager steps towards an Olympic Games debut were taken in 1956.

The first Olympic held in the southern hemisphere in Melbourne, Australia, that year started Malaysia (Malaya) on the great and exciting adventure of international sport.

Malaysians have carried their flag far and wide across the globe. From everywhere the reports have been good. Malaysian teams have always conducted themselves with dignity, often with distinction.

The need at Vientiane 2009, 25th edition of SEA Games will be 87 GOLD medals to reach the new levels of achievement of Malaysia in SEA Games.

Gold, Silver & Bronze medal, 24th SEA Games Korat 2007.

Perhaps there will be some magic in numbers, a thrilling coincidence. The possibility has added spice and purpose to Malaysia's preparations for the Games.

If the Tan Sri Tunku Imran, who is president of the Olympic Council of Malaysia, is present to see the 1000th GOLD medal being won and is invited to perform the rostrum ceremony, it will be a great moment in Malaysian sports history.

Spain draw Malaysia 3:3 (2:1)

In thelast preliminary round match in Johor Bahru, Spain took on the hosts from Malaysia in an all-or-nothing battle for who was going to join Korea in the medal round.

Spain had a slight advantage, as a draw would do for them, while Malaysia had to win, and they gave the Iberians a good scare early in the game when Faizal Saari netted in the 10th minute.

The European Champions remained unimpressed however, and turned the tables with a double hit about ten minutes later. They could then hold on to the lead for a good part of the match, and even extended the lead to two goals midway through the second half, but Malaysia, to the great delight of a once more absolutely packed stadium responded with a goal five minutes later.

Malaysia even scored the equalizer in the last ten minutes of the match, but it wasn't enough: the draw sees Spain through to the medal round, while Malaysia will be playing in the 9 to 16 bracket.

Malaysia defeat USA with convincing 5:2

After a 5:2-victory over USA Malaysia kept their chances for the medal round. The hosts had a furious start into the match. After 90 seconds the ball was already in the goal of the USA. Muhd Izzat Mohd Rahim shot with the Argentinean backhand directly under the crossbar in the net.

The crowd exploded and kept yelling. Just a few minutes later Mohd Marhan Mohd Jalil was successful. Malaysia´s next attack could only be stopped by an US-player who saved the ball with his body on the goal line. Faizal Saari converted the following penalty stroke without any problems. USA was shocked to be already 0:3b ehind after ten minutes. But the hosts kept the pressure up and gained the 4:0, a nice deflection by Mohamad Shafiq Mohamad Zain.

After the convincing lead Malaysia gave the USA a chance get themselves organised. Malaysia did not play that consequently anymore which was penalized by US-boy Nicholas Szoke who scored for his team. To the end of the first half the stadium was that crowded that a lot of spectators watched from behind the fences on the street.,11410,5213-196500-151038-0-news,00.jpg

The start of the second half was a bit quiet. USA had two unsuccessful penalty corners and Malaysia´s attacks got more inefficiently as well. Around ten minutes before the final whistle USA came back with the 2:4, a penalty corner goal by Jed Cunningham.

To sum up Malaysia missed to score a few more goals which probably could have helped them if the medal-round ticket matter comes down to the goal difference with Spain or Korea in Pool C.

Malaysia v USA 5:2 (4:1)

1:0 Muhd Izzat MOHD RAHIM (FG), 2:0 Mohd Marhan MOHD JALIL (FG), 3:0 FaizalSAARI (PS), 4:0 Mohamad Shafiq MOHAMED ZAIN (FG), 4:1 Nicholas SZOKE (FG), 4:2 Jed CUNNINGHAM (PC), 5:2 Faizal SAARI (PC)

Korea defeat Malaysia 2:0 (1:0)

In a once more crowded stadium, the Malaysian team could not provide the delight of victory to their spectators today as they took on the powerful Koreans.

Korea could not quite overrun the home team as they did the US boys yesterday, but a pair of penalty corner goals was enough to seal the deal and raise Korea's tally to two wins in the competition.

A fifth minute Moon Kyu Kang hit gave Korea an early lead, and while they weren't able to run away with it, they did manage to secure and defend it. Halfway through the second half, Yun Sang Jeong added a second goal to finalize the score.

Fired up by the vocal crowd, Malaysia fought tooth and nail but could not get back at the Koreans, who head into the night as table leaders in pool C with a comfortable cushion of six points, while Malaysia sit in the middle of the table with one win and one defeat.

Malaysia defeat England 1:0 (1:0)

Malaysia concluded the first day of the Standard Chartered Bank FIH Men's Junior World Cup with a narrow win over England in a stadium filled beyond capacity, with spectators spilling onto the embankments and the street passing the venue to see the home team play.

In a competition of power against skill and speed, the initial fragile balance threatened to tip midway through the first half when Malaysia's Faizal Saari collected a yellow card, but only a little while later, Saari re-appeared from the sin bin to proclaim himself the man of the match, sinking a penalty corner for the encounter's lone goal.

England fought tooth and nail to even the score again but found the odds stacked against them. A goal down and closing in fast on total exhaustion, they couldn't find a way past their opponents, despite a number of opportunities including a few penalty corners that went unused.

To the great joy of the vocal crowd, the Malaysian hosts defended their lead until the final whistle, bagging three important points in the race for the top two spots in their pool.
