OLIMPIK LONDON MUNGKIN DALAM BULAN PUASA

KUALA LUMPUR – Kejohanan Olimpik London 2012 mungkin diadakan dalam bulan puasa dan ini memerlukan penyesuaian di kalangan atlet dari negara Islam termasuk Malaysia untuk bertanding ketika mereka sedang menahan lapar dan dahaga.

Setiausaha Kehormat Majlis Olimpik Malaysia (MOM) Datuk Sieh Kok Chi tidak menolak kemungkinan Olimpik London diadakan dalam bulan puasa iaitu iaitu Julai 2012.

“Menurut maklumat yang diterima, ia akan bermula pada 27 Julai manakala umat Islam pula di jangka sudah mula berpuasa pada 20 Julai,” katanya ketika ditemui Bernama di Wisma MOM di sini, semalam.

Jangkaan atlet Malaysia yang akan bertanding di Olimpik London ialah dari acara badminton dan kemungkinan juga dalam acara memanah dan trek berbasikal. – Bernama


YOUNG IZZUDDIN THE BEST BET TO BREAK INTO NATIONAL TEAM

By Lim Teik Huat

PETALING JAYA: Youngster Mohd Izzuddin Abdul Rahim is threatening to break the monopoly enjoyed by archers Cheng Chu Sian, Marbawi Sulaiman and Wan Khalmizam Wan Abdul Aziz in the senior national team.

The 18-year-old made heads turn when he finished fourth in a field of 82 archers in the World Youth Championships in Turkey on Sunday.

Izzuddin reached the boy’s junior recurve semi-finals and was beaten 104-108 by eventual winner Luca Melotto of Italy.

And in the shoot for the bronze, Izzuddin lost 99-113 to another Italian, Mandia Massimiliano, who was the highest placed archer from the qualification rounds. Izzuddin was placed 11th in qualifying and cleared four rounds to reach the semi-finals.

Malaysia had two other qualifiers in Arif Farhan Ibrahim Putra and Liew Tek Wa but they failed to make it past the second round.

The Malaysian girls €” Ismail Fara Wahida, Anuar Fepriyenita and Beatrice Wong €” were eliminated in the first round.

Izzuddin was only 16 when he bagged silver in the cadet category of the last world youth championships in Mexico two years ago.

That was also the year when he emerged as the youngest winner in the Sukma (Malaysia Games) archery competition in Kedah.

Although he finished out of the medals this time, the Penang-born Izzuddin certainly showed his potential and should be seen as a bright prospect to qualify for the 2012 London Olympics.

Khalmizam believes that Izzuddin will make it to the senior team before the SEA Games next year.

“It is not easy to do well at the world level be­cause you need to shoot consistently over different distances (30m, 50m, 70m and 90m),” he said.

“It is a healthy competition for the national senior team. It is always the three of us competing in senior team events. It is always good to see another archer coming up as an able replacement.”


ARCHERY JUDGING COURSE ON OCTOBER 20

15 October, 2008


Kota Kinabalu: The Sabah Archery Association (SAA) together with the National Archery Association of Malaysia (NAAM) is conducting an archery judging course on Oct 20-22 at the Likas Sports Complex, here.


SAA president Hj Zainie Abdul Aucasa said that the objective of the course is to promote a better understanding of the rules and judging aspects of the sport as well as promote the sport in schools throughout the state.


About 27 participants, mostly schoolteachers from schools such as SMK Kinabutan, SMK Kabota, SMK Pasir Puteh (Tawau), SMK Elapura II, SMK Kudat, SMK Agama Sandakan and SMK Kemabong are expected to attend the course.


In other developments, Zainie said that the SAA is working with the relevant authorities to assist in providing necessary archery equipment for several schools in Tawau.


"It was noted that there are a number of potential up and coming archers from these schools. However, the main problem faced by the coaches there is the lack of archery equipment," he said.


He also pointed out that the SAA had recently conducted a two-day basic archery course for four teachers and 15 students from SMK Kinabutan, SMK Kabota, SMK Pasir Puteh at the Tawau sports Complex.


The course was conducted by SAA's Paul Leong and State Training Centre coach, Azmi Shazinan, who is based in Papar.



MESYUARAT AGONG TAHUNAN KE-32

PERSATUAN MEMANAH KEBANGSAAN MALAYSIA



Mesyuarat Agong Tahunan adalah salah satu aktiviti yang harus dijalankan oleh Persatuan Memanah Kebangsaan Malaysia pada setiap tahun. Ini adalah bertujuan untuk mengumpul dan berbincang dengan persatuan-persatuan memanah yang bergabung dengan NAAM. Mesyuarat kali ini diadakan lewat daripada tarikh yang sepatutnya berikutan pihak NAAM menunggu kelulusan perlembagaan baru NAAM. Dukacitanya penantian ini tidak mendatangkan hasil yang positif, oleh itu, pihak NAAM terpaksa menjalankan juga Mesyuarat Agong bagi mengelak NAAM di gantung.


Mesyuarat dimulakan dengan Jamuan Hari Raya Persatuan Memanah Kebangsaan Malaysia pada jam 3.00 petang, 28hb Oktober 2008 di ruang legar Casa 1. Mesyuarat dimulakan pada jam 3.45 petang dan dipengerusikan oleh Yg.Bhg. Tan Sri Abdul Halil bin Abd. Mutalif. Mesyuarat dihadiri oleh Ahli Jawatankuasa NAAM, perwakilan dari ahli-ahli gabungan dan perwakilan dari Majlis Sukan Negara Malaysia.


Walaupun hasrat sebenar agar perlembagaan baru dapat dilaksanakan dan disahkan penggunaannya, mesyuarat ini tetap berjalan dengan lancar tanpa sebarang kesulitan. Usul-usul yang diberikan oleh ahli gabungan dapat dibincangkan dan diselesaikan dengan baik. Beberapa perkara telah dibangkitkan oleh ahli gabungan dan juga dapat di jawab dengan baik serta diterima oleh ahli-ahli.


Pembentangan laporan aktiviti NAAM sepanjang 2007 disampaikan oleh Setiausaha Kehormat dan laporan Penyata Kewangan NAAM yang berakhir pada 31hb Disember 2007 disampaikan oleh Bendahari Kehormat. Kedua-duanya telah dipersetujui oleh ahli-ahli perwakilan dan disahkan.


Pada Mesyuarat Agong tahun ini, sesi pemilihan ahli jawatankuasa bagi sesi 2008/ 2010 telah dijalankan. Sesi ini berjalan dengan lancar tanpa sebarang pertelingkahan atau ketidak puasan hati mana-mana pihak dan diterima dengan baik memandangkan ahli yang terpilih adalah berwibawa dan bersesuaian dengan kemahiran kerja masing-masing.


Mesyuarat ini ditangguhkan oleh Y.Bhg. Tan Sri Presiden pada jam 6.20 petang.
