Are we different?

Most people wouldn't mind about the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games and several would only watch or follow their favourite sport/games...I've been watching and trying to catch up with several 'hot' games like....the swimming for the likes of Michael Phelps who's gunning for the most won gold medal in a single Olympic Games to over throne the mighty Mark Spitz of 7 gold medals....the athletics category like 100 meter for the most anticipated fastest man on earth ,110 meter hurdle for the former world record holder, Liu of China as well as 400 meter relays for the mighty USA relay team.....

Whilst watching several games on Astro....I'm wondering why and how come we don't have any world re-known athletes that able to provide a real nerve breaking fight in any games..exception for Badminton in Olympic......how many Koreans, Chinese and Japanese have won their respective medals? Not to mention some by Thailanese as well as Vietnamese..What is so different between Malaysian and "them"? All these countries including us, Malaysia are part of the Asian continent but how/why would they be able to provide such world class result? Although some might not be able to win a gold medal but reaching to the top 5 spot is good enough to mark their threat and growing pace..when I asked Mr. Jab, he replied...they have made an early preparation as well as a scheme in their society to train their child into becoming world class athletes....as for China, children is fed with oat, wheat or cereal to help their growth (Yao Ming could be one of the product and I've heard of this a while ago that China has its own special experiment factory that's producing this breed into their society) In relation to this theory, I really believe the Chinese has resolved the major physical issue (pendek-pendek tagap..) I'm not sure if we have this implemented in our country but I knew that we had started making early preparation or scheme in accordance to future major sport events like Commonwealth and SEA Games..still I haven't seen any of its result up to this moment!!! How about shaping the pace or performance? Do they have any kind of special training that we, Malaysia don't have? Do they have better facilities compared to us?Do they have a special diets scheme that we are unable to implement here?

I can only come up with one huge excuse for all.."Malaysia Boleh"

Malaysia Boleh have all kind of modern and world class facilities that one developed country could ask for...
Malaysia Boleh send out our athletes to other countries around the world to get their world class training (plus world class allowances)...
Malaysia Boleh reward our athletes with huge sum of money once they have won a medal..
Malaysia Boleh pay world class coaches from other countries to train our athletes...
Malaysia Boleh spend lot of MONEY to achieve the above..

Contrary..Malaysia Boleh has failed to rectify whom should and worth to be sent to represent the Malaysia Boleh in order to save some MONEY of sporty-holiday-trip...

Our athletes need exposure as well as experience..a saying "if you want to be a successful person you'll need to be surrounded by successful people" Mysteriously, how can our athletes work this out if they can only manage to get into the qualification mark by a shear of seconds..Do we really need to send athletes that could not even make into the second round heat or semifinal? We're so so so proud of our athletes when they qualified to big sport events (Olympic and Commonwealth) Suprisingly, this news does not indicates good news when it comes to reality... it is quite saddening that we have spent lot of MONEY to improve our sports but due to some unseen fact, our athletes disappoint us...I'm not saying that I'm no fan to them or not being supportive..I'm trying to be supportive that I have to tell how I feel about our current sports situation..I really am but it just that watching them to finish last during their first round heat made me thinking what we haves and what we don't haves that causing this result...internally, we can see the differences between present and previous...we were once the mighty and the one to beat in the Asian continent....we're now even lower than other small countries among Asian continent...nothing could be more perfect when sports have become a political resort in Malaysia....Malaysia Boleh make sports as political benefits in Malaysia...

lol i think sometimes malaysians just damn lazy lah, plus we dont have the sports mentality.. here sports is super important.. people send their kids for swimming, soccer, sports clubs when the kids are like 3 yrs old..

Seriously, I was about to come up with something like this, coz, I can't accept the facts that our athletes are weak...I assumed that they are weak la since they cannot even qualify in many events..Physically..they are actually capable..Sa rasa stakat melaungakn Malaysia BOleh tu apa la juga kan..di mulut ja..emm..To say I'm frustrated pun nda juga, coz it is expected..Chong wei ja tu yg dibangga2kan tingu ja la nanti...hehe

hi xigorx..yup..LCW is a proud to us although he didn't win the gold...at least..his life is now easier than us..RM3k whole life pension..huhu..

Actually there's another reason why Malaysia Boleh can't compete with others...this could be something worth for us to think of...the fact that we only have less than 30 mil population would also making us less in talent..compared to china..who has over 1 bil populatio n followed by USA....this fact is strong enough when USSR was a whole country decades ago..they were once as mighty as USA...but still...india is one of the biggest population in the world..still have we ever seen any of their athletes that so competent enough in any big games...I wonder?
