NAY PYI TAW, 23 July  ___

Patron of the Leading Committee for Preparation of the XXVII SEA Games Vice-President Dr Sai Mauk Kham visited sports grounds and stadiums around here to view training of athletes this morning and addressed the coordination meeting of the committee for ensuring success in XXVII SEA Games.


The Vice-President first visited Nay Pyi Taw sports training camp in Lewe Township of Nay Pyi Taw Council Area where he, accompanied by Union Minister at the President Office U Thein Nyunt, Union Minister for Hotels and Tourism and for Sports U Tint Hsan, deputy ministers, personnel of the Ministry of Sports, presidents, vicepresidents and secretaries of respective sports federations, viewed athletes of such sports as billiard, Sepak Takraw, judo, Pencak Silat, badminton, acrobatics, table tennis, karatedo, Taekwondo, weight-lifting, Wushu, shooting and track & field undergoing training for the XXVII SEA Games and spoke words of encouragement to them.

The Vice-President and party then visited construction site of Zabuthiri Stadium in Zabuthiri Township where the opening and closing of the XXVII SEA Games would be held. The Vice- President inspected the progress of the stadium and stressed the needs.

The Vice-President then visited Nay Pyi Taw archery range in Zabuthiri Township and viewed the training of selected archers.

The Vice-President at the sports village inspected completed apartments and hostels for Myanmar athletes. He then proceeded to Ngalaik Dam to view training of yachtsmen and rowers at Nay Pyi Taw rowing sports centre.

The Vice-President later went to Nay Pyi Taw cycling ground near Mount Pleasant Hotel. Ho spoke words of encouragement to them and inspected BMX, Cross Country and Down Hill.

The Vice-President then attended the coordination meeting for preparation for ensuring success in XXVII SEA Games at the Mount Pleasant Hotel Chairman of the Leading Committee for Preparation of the XXVII SEA Games Union Minister U Tint Hsan reported on preparation for achievements in XXVII SEA Games.

Next, President of Myanmar Para Sports Federation Major General Nay Lin reported propositions to host the seventh ASEAN ParaGames after the XXVII SEA Games and preparation for achievements in the games.

The Vice-President, in his speech, said the XXVII SEA Games is drawing near, 16 moths away from now. What to be focused and prepared was instructed at the latest meeting in last February. Respective sports federations are undergoing intensive training, but there still may be ones that have just begun training. The results would depend on the extent of the comprehensiveness of the training. During the election campaigns on TV, candidates argued that men make their own history. If so, sportsmen and sports federations need to write their own history.

It is everyone’s aspiration to possess glorious days somehow. Self-determination, diligence and never-say-die attitude is what is needed to write the history at the very moment. It is the State’s desire to have it significant landmark in the course of sports standard development.

The State would assist in whatever it can and the federations are also to strive for whatever possible results. The training of sportsmen can be categorized into two parts, physical and mental trainings, both of which need considerable support. In addition to intensive training at home, international experience is instrumental.

Myanmar achieved 16 gold medals in the XXVI SEA Games held in Indonesia, forwarding from eighth to seventh in the medal standing. But, still it is much below the level from 35 gold medals in 1961 and 59 gold medals in 1969. As the country would act as the host, it needs to grasp the first place, at least the third, only then records would remain remarkable.

The State takes pride in success of U-22 football team which sailed through the qualifier. The State also took pride in success of such sports as rowing, archery, sepak takraw, judo, wushu and so forth in the previous SEA games. It is said the exciting time or the time when emotions run highest is when the flag is flown after the competition. It is said that nothing matches the mixed feelings on feels when his own national flag is flown atop the mast. Some even shed tear either out of joy or out of sadness, at the highest of their emotions.

So, all are obliged to do their bit fly high the State Flag. Assistance must be provided for successful holding of seventh ASEAN Para Games. All responsible persons including the sports federations are to make collaborative efforts for successful holding of and ensuring victories in XXVII SEA Games, urged the Vice-President.
