KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 23 (Bernama) -- The national dodgeball team needed to continue the momentum of success in international tournaments to promote the sport to the people in the country, said Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin.
He said the Malaysian Dodgeball Federation (MDF) should be creative in their promotion to attract more people in the country to participate in the sport.
"The best way to popularise this new sport is to create a winning momentum and, if we are able to do it at the highest level, it is better still.
"I understand this year's world championship will be held in New York, United States and I hope our dodgeball team will once again make a surprise and defeat better teams than us, especially in terms of rankings and so on," he said at the MDF dinner function here tonight.
Also present were Youth and Sports Ministry secretary-general Datuk Lokman Hakim Ali and MDF president Datuk Mas Ermieyati Samsudin, who is also Deputy Minister of Tourism and Culture.....
