Their achievement in making the final of the 3rd World Cup will cost the government a bundle of money.
And even if they lose to India, they are assured of incentives under the Shakam, the sports incentive scheme that is under the jurisdiction of the National Sports Council.
And the Olympic Council of Malaysia could well nominate them for the team of the year.
But above all the Minister of Youth and Sports and his merry men will be at KLIA awaiting the arrival of the team with garlands, and in the process gain vital political mileage.
The only problem is other then the fact they wear the Jalur Gemilang with pride that BAM ditched, there is nothing Malaysian about the women’s team calling themselves Malaysia at the Kabbadi World Cup in Jalandhar India.
Still the event telecast live in India has put Malaysia on the world map and the Tourism Ministry could not have come up with a better way to promote Malaysia in the eyes of the Indian public.
Lets hope they win the final and at least we have a world champion besides Nocol David.
And OCM still not late to give the Women Sport Achievement award to these girls instead of an undeserving person who has no respect for the pain suffered by a person of the same gender.
