In Malaysia, the first underwater hockey players were international students studying in Wales eight years ago and became the first domestic team. There are about 50 people in Malaysia playing the game. They usually do 4 sessions weekly, each lasting 2 hours.

Although the country only has 50 people who know water hockey, Malaysia will send 24 athletes to compete in both men and women. These players will compete with their own money in the hope that their achievements will be compensated. This hope is not low because there are 4 gold medals in water hockey.

Hashim said that Malaysia last attended the Games in 1986 in South Korea. There the Malaysian women’s hockey team lost in the semi-finals and ASIAD 15 will have a good chance for Malaysia to find what was lost.

According to the hockey coach, Mr. C.R.Kumar qualifying had good matches. And it is an opportunity for him and his students to check the level and arrange the positions on the field. He will find a new strategy to achieve high results.

He also added that the team is currently struggling and worried at the free kick position by Nurul Nadia Mokhatar. She is a professional who holds this position because she cannot continue playing due to the surgery on her head. And this was a huge loss for the Malaysian hockey team before the Asian Games.

So now they are focusing on training this athlete. With the current performance of Norfaraha they will have more options for the upcoming Asian Games.

The Grewal’s teachings have always been remembered in his heart and become the driving force for his success today. Ishwarpal Singh Grewal is Singapore’s famous national hockey player.

To this day, still vividly remembers the story that happened when he was 15 years old. Ishwarpal returned home with tears and fear. He told his father that he failed to join the school hockey team.

His father Santokh Singh was a sports enthusiast, and he fostered his son to practice hockey as a true athlete. When he heard his son reporting bad news, instead of being disappointed, he simply told Ishwarpal to see him throw a ball on the floor.

The ball hit the floor and bounced back higher than its position. It was the first time his father taught him the lesson of recovery. And this lesson has stuck with me for the rest of my life. The important thing is not how you fall, but how high you turn.

Throughout his career as an athlete, he has encountered many failures. He had to sit in reserve for important matches, lost in the final, and once made the wrong decision that the team lost. But I always remember to recover. This lesson is what makes a big difference to British everyday life.

Ishwarpal recounts that resilience is a value instilled in him from a young age. He grew up in sports stories at home and started playing hockey in a yard with his father and siblings.

At that time, he was only 5-6 years old. Later, he studied at Raffles Institute. And he started playing for the national team when he was 19. Ishwarpal once represented Singapore for three Olympic Games.

“Many times, I have not been selected to the team. I never played for the national team at any age group, until I was 19, ”Ishwarpal said. Ishwarpal’s father died in 2016, but his lesson with his son forever: “If not resilient, there will be no success”.

Hockey – The art of fighting sport

Hiding behind thick clothes, using sturdy long sticks and having to stand on a wide contact surface of less than 1cm, hockey is really a dangerous fighting sport.


A few years ago, most people had absolutely no idea of ​​this sport and did not even know the name Hockey. The reason why hockey is not so popular in some countries is probably due to its complexity.

The first is the technical element. Unlike other competitive sports, hockey requires players to master at least one important skill, which is skating. Moving on a synthetic plastic floor with a special type of shoe similar to roller skates (without a wheel on the sole of the shoe but instead with a metal slice), skating requires the player to be able to hold the balance by special. According to the majority of young people who have learned to play ice skating, to be able to learn how to stand firm, it takes at least 2-3 training sessions. And to move really as you like, it takes a lot more time and it depends on the ability of each person.

As a fighting sport, hockey involves factors such as collision, rotation and anyone who has ever played football, basketball knows, even when moving on the feet, these factors also cause a lot of difficulty for standing, let alone moving by skates.

Besides technical issues, Hockey is also complex in both equipment and competition equipment. Other equipments such as hats, protective clothing, gloves, and sticks are also very expensive. This makes it difficult for those who want to own a real kit in this game. Even in the event of a sufficient purchase, being able to wear a thick outfit, wear a bulky hat that limits visibility, and then practice playing is another matter.

From the outside, hockey is not really “eye-catching.” In the audience, only one large group of bulky players is gathered around a small disk that is difficult to see. The competing scenes didn’t have any special beauty, all showed that this is a boring sport for the viewers, but in the posture, the player is completely different.

Every sport needs full-body movement, but most of them focus on technical elements in only one part (feet with football, hands with basketball, table tennis…), Hockey, in contrast, requires dexterity in both hands and feet. Although the skill of skating is difficult and requires a lot of practice time, the hand is still the main body of hockey competition, so of course, hockey players must be dexterity. It is this complexity that attracts some young people to hockey.
