Hei all , first of all , i would like congrats to the Malaysia Women Basketball team for winning the gold medal again in Sea Games 2017 .
Alot of you might be curious how the heck Malaysia team could win over strong basketball country such as Philippines ? Not to mention others strong opponents ,Thailand and Indonesia .
I have been training the Malaysia Women Basketball team for the past 9 months to prepare them for Seagames 2017 . Under the conditions of poor resources such as training technology , financial supports , and professional services such as physio , nutritionist and others expert to support the team , we still manage to win the Gold medal .
Why is that?
Let me reveal the secret to the winning of the team .
Despite we are lacking of support in difference areas , when compare to the others country ,
we have a few things that others country may not have.
1.Strong supports from the president of Malaysia Basketball Association , Dato Lua Choon Han
2.Super fans that support the team from the first match till the end .
3. The sacrifice of the coaches.
These coaches are like the women team’s sister/mother . They take care nearly everything about the players , from training , education and also future life planning . And these coaches spent their entire years ,every months , weeks ,days , hours , minutes and seconds with the players .
4.The sacrifice of the team players .
As we all know , basketball is not a very popular sports in Malaysia , especially in the women category . Lets face the facts , when a sport is not popular , the funding for the sports will also be low . These players are pretty much getting a very low paid , and they need to 100% stop their work or study in order to prepare for the Seagames 2017 . A hat off to the team .
5. Last but not least , the Kuasa Juara of the team.
If you have a chance , do dropby , join or at least have a look at their training . Their training programme is not only gears towards strengthening and conditioning their physical , but also their mind . When competing with opponents that are about the same capability , the only things that will make a team win , is the MIND . As we can see , nearly all matches are tough games . Games that are tough enough to go beyond what the body can takes .
How did the girls survive in such rigid , tough ,brutal matches against their opponent ?
The Winning and NEVER BREAK DOWN mentality .

You MIND could crash you , or make you a champion .
In every training session , noone is allow to give up until the last second of training . Their typical routine will be , starting their warm up at 7am , and training session start at 7.30am ,either gym session or ball practice . One day off every week .
