KUALA LUMPUR: It was a day of high-flying performances by secondary school cheerleading teams at the Cheer 2013 finals here.

Defending champions for the last three years, the Cyrens of SM Sri Kuala Lumpur, retained their title in the All-Girls category.

Their sister team, the Rayvens, won the All-Girls Junior category.

Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said he was impressed by the energy of the cheerleaders and supporters at Stadium Putra yesterday.

“This is what sports in Malaysia should be about. The energy, drive, commitment and sportsmanship is amazing.

“If our national football team had the same level of support, we would win the World Cup,” he said.

The Cyrens delivered flawless routines over the two-day competition to defend their title in style.

Cyrens captain Ong Wei Lee, 16, said: “It’s amazing. We also saw many of our competitors performing much harder stunts.”

Organised by R.AGE, the 14th year of Cheer saw the introduction of a new All-Girls Junior category.

The Co-Ed Division, where male and female students perform together, was won by the Mickeymitez from SMK Damansara Jaya.

“Everybody levelled up this year. The performances were more polished and clean,” said judge Arnold Basa Villanueva from the Philip­pines.
