    The project to have a High Performance Training Centre for Malaysian athletes in London is on, the Cabinet committee for sports decided yesterday.

    However, a new sports complex is unlikely to be built. Instead, facilities at the Tun Abdul Razak Research Centre (TARRC) in Brickendonbury may be renovated and upgraded.

    Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, who chairs the committee, said the centre was necessary to realise the government's vision of excelling in sports at international level.

    This doesn't really make sense when the gov say the center was Necessary to Realise its vision of excelling in Sports at International Level.

    When they say excelling Sports at International Level.. does it mean that they want other countries to Excel in Sports? or Want Malaysia to excel in Sports at International level.... hmmmm i'm confused here.

    If Malaysia excel in International level... what the heck build a center so far away!?

    Well, my Malaysian friends in the UK will be happy if they can play there.

    But most of the ex-state players are already in their early twenties, too old I'm guessing to be seriously training for international competition.

    One of the Yap twins is here, formerly Malaysian number one, I'm sure he'd be available to coach there. He's still a hell of a player.

    Only thing that make sense to me is that someone is going to be very rich with all these funds in renovating/upgrading this TARRC. errrr who's the head/owner of this so called TARRC huh. ;)

    I also dont understand why they want to build a sports center to far away from home. I think it will be cheaper to build 1 in malaysia and hire foreign coaches considering the high cost to build the center as well as the high overhead cost in london.

    Why they want to spend so much money to build a so called "International Level" of training center ? Stupid planning.

    If they failed to perform, those stupid officer will bash our poor Malaysia athletes again, again and again.
