MASUM Sirkit 1, 2010
It’s the time for MASUM again..This year MASUM held in UMT, Terengganu. This time I’m be the leader(captain)+player..I remembered last year IMTGT I also be the replaced captain because the former captain absence.. It’s nt easy to be a leader(captain) in a team. Before the competition held, we had been told that this year’s format is not the same like last year, become the single event again-Mix doubles, men doubles, woman doubles, woman single and man single. So, we are alr discuss between ourselves for long time, esp between me n another captain, weilun. Finally, the players list are out. We are so stress out actually because this year USM not let all the sports join MASUM because APEX UNI they want GOOD PERFORMANCE. So, they base on last year performance to consider whether which sport to take part. Ping pong is consider as a high performance sport since last few years, so we had been chosen this time.
But, I knw we must have a good performance for this time MASUM. But the problems are we dun have our own coach in USM varsity team and we lack of many talented players if compare to last few years. So, how we going to have good performance? I tell myself, nvrmind.. We depend on our hardworking practice sure can, but, many of the players didn’t attend practice due to their own personally reasons. I also busy with my assignments, tests, activities, but y I can attend but u all cant? Luckily my doubles partner quite cooperate, she come here from engineering campus to practice with me few times. Appreciate for her cooperate.
So I can say that some of the players go for the MASUM tournament without practice well. N we also met a lot of problems before the MASUM start(during the TEAM MANAGER MEETING)- the organizer do not hav experience in the table tennis competition, so some of the schedule need to change. I tot after the changes will be better, but also have lot of problems. They didn’t start the games on the time, n the competition even extended till 1A.M
A team really difficult to control, because I need to fulfill everyone’s needs and take care everyone. It happened a little argument between me and another teammate, but not because of me but because of another person. Luckily I can calm down myself and didn’t let the argument continue. Actually I face a lot of stress and didn’t tell anyone- If we didn’t have any good performance, we(captain) will been asked by unit sukan and dunno how to write the MASUM report. But I decide not to tell my teammates, I scare they also will become stress and will affect their performance, so I don’t let anyone knws. it’s better just me alone suffer than others suffer. It’s really a hardship and suffer for me for the first few days, because I scared no GOOD PERFORMANCE. But I need to pretend nothing in front of them, I cant show my anxiety n stressful infront of them.
In the small group tournament, except 1 man double n 2 singles, all USM teammates eligible to the semi-quarter final. Quite a good result, we satisfied for that actually.
Another problem we face is USM woman doubles both teams will meet the STONGEST team that is UM in the quarter if follow the schedule, and all strongest will met earlier then what purpose to continue the tournaments? We alr made complain and it doesn’t help. So, we WANTED to lost to a team so that we can be the 2nd in small group, this is the first time I wanted to lost in a game, it sounds funny, but if we lost it really advantage for us to gt into final. But after we lost a team,we also become the 1st in the small group, so we just continue with our game. As a result, we win UM 1st double so we enter semi-final.but another team lost to UM 2nd double. So in the semi-final we met UM 2nd doubles. And we won. So we gt into final, when final we win UKM so we become CHAMPION in woman doubles. Thanks to my partner for contribute a GOLD to USM.
Overall results, woman doubles- champion, man single-champion and man doubles-runner-up. Luckily we gt a quite good results for this time MASUM. But we also have MASUM Sirkit 2 again in Shah Alam. Hope that time we also can get such good performance. Thanks to all USM teammates for this time MASUM. Thanks to all USM teammates, Sharon Lee, Iyvon Ling, Dhammika Pang, Liuyan Ooi, SuRene Chong, Hui Fen, Dion Tan, Kelvin Chai Wee Kiat, Teng Jia Rong, Shu Cheng Ho, Wen Yong, Ah Liang and esp my partner, shuwei wong and thanks to Desmond Teng, Nick, Behzard, Vron Ng, Tong Kim Suan teach us during our matches. Hope we all can continue our practice to prepare for future competition. Arrange time for practice and be prepare for the next competition, USM still need our contribution!
