THE Malaysian Students’ Council of Australia Victoria organised its fifth annual Malaysian Games recently.
Over 450 Malaysian students from all over the state of Victoria converged in Melbourne for the sporting event, which covered nine different sports, including basketball, squash, futsal and even ultimate frisbee.
The Malaysian Games was held at several locations, namely the University of Melbourne Sports Centre, Princes Park and the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre.
Besides the students, several senior Malaysian residents in Victoria also turned up to participate in the Games.
One of them was Lawrence Lim, 60, who hails from Parit Buntar, Perak, and has been living in Melbourne for four decades.
“The Games were held in good spirit. It’s all about the fun and friendly people,” he said.
Project director Yeo Sheh Tyne added: “The Games are not about winning; it is the journey that matters, the people met and the moments that count.”
