Sukma Games may be held anually, starting 2011

KUALA LUMPUR March 31 After 24 years of being a biennial event, the Sukma Games may be held annually, beginning next year.

Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Ahmad Shabery Cheek said however, that the proposal to hold the games annually would require Cabinet approval first.

He said the purpose of making the games an annual event was to enable associations and athletes to continuously improve their performance and make careful preparations for the events.

"The gap of two years is too long, which leads the associations and athletes to be inactive until the next event, he told reporters here today.

Earlier, the minister had chaired a National Sports Council (NSC) board of directors meeting in Bukit Jalil. Also present was NSC director-general Datuk Zolkples Embong and National Sports Institute director-general Datuk Dr Ramlan Abd Aziz.

On the date of the Sukma Games in Melaka (June 10-19) partially overlapping with that of the World Cup in South Africa (June 11 to July 11), Ahmad Shabery said it was chosen based on the school holidays.

Meanwhile, he said that next year, the Mini Olympics which was introduced in 2008, would be absorbed into the Sukma Games.

He said the event would be hosted on a rotation basis between the National Sports Complex in Bukit Jalil and those in other states.

"As of next year, the Mini Olympics will be held with the Sukma Games in a larger event, he said.
