Women’s hockey team receive special recognition award

KUALA LUMPUR: The Asian Hockey Federation (AHF) have presented the Malaysian women’s hockey team with a special recognition award at the ongoing Women’s Asian Champions Trophy (ACT) in Donghae, South Korea.

The award is in appreciation of the Tigres’ dedication, effort, willingness and cooperation in taking part in the tournament despite having had to withdraw from their first-two matches after Nurul Faezah Shafiqah Khalim tested positive for Covid-19.

“It has been a tough week for the team who have prepared extremely hard for the ACT.

“Due to the current situation, we were unable to play against China and India,” the AHF said in a statement yesterday.

The team are currently under quarantine since Dec 1 and if things go well they will play against Japan today.

Their other matches are against South Korea tomorrow and Thailand (Dec 11).

Malaysia’s best achievement was a bronze medal in the 2013 edition. In 2018, they finished fourth.
