OCM Annual Dinner and Awards Night 2014

The 22nd OCM Annual Dinner and Awards Night was successfully organized on Saturday, 13th December 2014 at 8.00 pm at the Tan Sri Hamzah Arena, Wisma OCM, Kuala Lumpur. The Guest of Honour was YB Encik Khairy Jamaluddin, Minister of Youth and Sports Malaysia. There were around 550 guests, comprising representatives of National Sports Associations, government sports organizations, inductees of OCM Hall of Fame, sponsors and supporters.
Famemas with Tunku Tan Sri Imran.
 In his opening address, YAM Tunku Tan Sri Imran ibni Almarhum Tuanku Ja’afar, President of OCM stated as follows “The over dependency of most of the NSAs on government funding has reduced their motivation to generate their own income for their own development. Government is the biggest financial contributor to Sport in this country. However, in addition to being the major fund provider of NSAs, MSN has also assumed the role of being the deliverer of elite sport in Malaysia, carrying out the roles and activities that were carried in the past by the NSAs”.

 YAM Tunku then called on the Hon. Minister of Youth and Sports, for MSN to consider handing the baton back to the NSAs, and assume its rightful role of being the facilitator of elite sports and supporter of the NSAs. He felt that such a move would certainly motivate the NSAs to work harder and have a more meaningful contribution to the development of their respective sport.

 YAM Tunku added “I have said many times in the past. The buck stops with the NSA’s. They are responsible for all successes and failures in their sport.” He then appealed to the Ministry of Youth and Sport to divert some of the Government’s funds to build up the capacity of the NSA’s is of the utmost urgency in order to prevent a serious deterioration in sports in the country.
Famemas Exco.
Hon. Encik Khairy Jamaluddin, the Minister of Youth and Sports, in his speech said that it is his vision to make Malaysia a strong sporting nation. He added that no strong sporting nation practiced a centralized system of sports development, except in communist countries and as such, he was prepared to reduce the role of MSN and pass back the powers to the National Sports Associations and the State Sports Associations. He called on all stake-holders of sport to work together and with him, to bring sports development in Malaysia to a higher level. The Minister stated “It is important to look forward and see what can we do over the next 4 years...let us work together!”.

I was seated a row below those two Vietnamese girls with Tok Mo. That was because the Malaysian supporters sections were all filled to the brim. After the rain started I moved to the upper terraces to protect myself from the rain. But the section of 1000 Vietnamese supporters didnt move.
Mr. Lee & TokMo
That was when the commotion started and a few Malaysian supporters started attacking the Vietnamese group. Water bottles were thrown at the area when Tok Mo and I were once seated. Some supporters from both sides started running away. FRU officials moved in to keep order.
Shame on the few soccer hooligans who mar Msia image at Vietnam game. Now we can expect same reception at MyDinh Stadium for 11 Dec return game...
After the match, a small fire was lit which was quickly put off. Supporters stayed behind the stadium and continued chanting. Some cracker missiles were fired into the air.
TheVietnamese Supporters did provoke us by showing the middle finger... and the way they danded... as claimed by some friend who were there.
It was a sad nite for Malaysian soccer. We thought English hooliganism happened far far away but this time, it happened in our shores...
