THE Malaysian men’s and women’s hockey teams continue to remain unshakeable in the SEA Games.
In the finals at the Queen Sirikit Sports Centre yesterday, the men’s team gave Singapore a 7-0 hockey lesson while the women did the same to Thailand, handing the hosts a 0-6 defeat.
Despite the big win by the men, national coach Sarjit Singh was still not satisfied with their overall performance.
“Malaysia are the regional hockey powerhouse. A lot still needs to be done for us to be a world powerhouse,” said Sarjit.
Women’s team manager Malarvani Annamalai said the two-week training stint the girls underwent in India before the Games helped tremendously in their quest for glory.
