FUN Facts To Look At

Malaysia’s has done poorly at the 30th SEA Games, but it will, however, be defended at the high noon press conference held in Clark City by the Chef De Mission, his Deputy, the National Sports Council (NSC) Director-General and the Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM) Secretary-General.

With the OCM Board meeting on Friday, I, too, would love to hear what the highly-painted and much-celebrated COO will have to say on these factual figures listed below.

Facts do not lie and statistics actually are a good yardstick between success and failure.
