• It is an incentive scheme for athletes to strive for gold medals at the highest level.
• It is a form of savings for the athletes and at the same time provides protection.
• It is affordable for the Partner and OCM, as the annual premium paid is only a fraction of the total insured sum.
A total of 69 athletes are in the scheme, which started in 1998. In 2009, OCM paid the total annual premium of about RM39,300/= for a total sum insured of RM2.01 million. OCM will cease payment for the first batch of athletes in the scheme in 2013, when the policies of this first batch of athletes become self-sustaining.

There were a few of them who regretted they could not attend this session but resolved that they would make up the session they had missed in the 2nd session next year.
From the feedback, it was noted that the participants were aware of what proper management entailed. Participants from the institute of higher learning found the learning techniques and learning activities most interesting and useful.
