    Malaysia Malaysian Ice Hockey Federationís Preparation for 2011 Winter Games

    THE Malaysian Ice Hockey Federationís (MIHF) journey to the 2011 Asian Winter Games in Kazakhstan has begun.

    The MIHF Presidentís Cup ice hockey league will serve as a selection base to identify potential players to represent Malaysia in the Asian Winter Games.

    MIHF president Datuk Lee Hwa Beng said they had formed a committee, headed by deputy president Haniff Mahmood, to draw up an intensive training programme towards the Asian Winter Games.

    ďWe have about three years to prepare the team. Being a non-temperate country, it is important for Malaysia to be well prepared for the Games. We have been accepted as a member of the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF), who have been supportive of our vision.

    ďSeveral of our members have also attended coaching and administrative courses conducted by IIHF. They will also be in the committee to assist Haniff in the programme,íí said Lee after launching the three-division ice hockey league recently.

    I'd say it sounds more like they're ramping up preps for the AWG, and will probably continue with the Asian Challenge Cup until then. Maybe in 2 or 3 more years we'll see them look to compete at the IHWCs
