DON’T COMPARE US WITH SINGAPORE
Beng Choo says Malaysia do things differently which could just be better
WE are not Singapore, we are Malaysia and the way we do things are a little bit different but the results could be better.”
These were the words of Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM) secretary general Datuk Low Beng Choo in regard to Malaysia setting precedent at the Sea Games following the second broadcasters meeting in Petaling Jaya yesterday.
“I think we must stop comparing with Singapore, for example, we are emphasising on hospitality, arrangement and the different places and things we can do.
“For the volunteers we have the wow factor because volunteers make or break the games and without them it cannot run.”
Beng Choo said the live broadcast of the Sea Games will be fair to all and not only focus on sports such as football and badminton.
“We’re not just focused on us (Malaysia) but we will broadcast one or two sports that the other countries are good at and that is why we have 24 (sports) on the (broadcast) list.”
The Sea Games will run from Aug 1931.
