Paragames is a game that normally start when SEA Games has ended, but since Laos has withdraw from hosting the event due to limited facilities for the disables.. therefore KL in turn played the host for Paragames this year!
In Korat 2007, in Chess our Paragames Athlete bags 2 Golds! however this year, in order for chess to be in category A, the target of 6 golds in chess has been put into bet by our Chief Coach / Captain of the chess squad - En Latif Muhammad. Chess will be divided into 2 categories, one - visual impared and another one - physical diabilities. Malaysia competing in all categories (as we are the host).
The coaches for this year Chess Paragames are : Asmah Ahmad Hambadley, NWM Roslina Marmomo, Rizal Ahmad Kamal, Hashim Jusoh, Abdul Haq Muhammad.. (hmm.. did I miss anyone?).. Yeah, another helper.. Haslindah Ruslan and Ghazali Che Kob (sms from Roslina.. thanks :-))
While I was at home, crossing fingers and pray hard that the dream would come true, who would have thought! Just received a sms from Asmah and a call from Roslina... Women squad just bag 3 Golds and Men 1 Gold! The total is 4 Golds, 4 Silvers and 4 Bronzes!
BRAVO! BRAVO! BRAVO! this is a celebration for all of us chess fans! CONGRATS CONGRATS CONGRATS....
2 more Golds guys.. then 6 Golds will be a mission completed! :-))
