Time flies by so quickly, we are now welcoming the second quarter of 2023. As we look forward to upcoming competitions and training camps, we want to take a moment to highlight some important events that happened in March.
Racewalking Camp 1.0
With the support of the Race Walkers’ Association of Malaysia and Milo, we hosted our very first race-walking camp on 9-10th March. Under the guidance of our coach, Elena Goh, the camp provided valuable lessons on proper technique and common mistakes in race-walking. In addition to the training, we also organized several team games and activities to keep things lively and engaging. These included team discussions, directing a Milo advertisement, and a relay race. We are organizing the next race-walking camp in September.

We took part in KL open on 18th & 19th March, which was the first open competition in 2023 for the athletes. We saw some fantastic performances from new athletes and congratulations to De Hui, Ashley Tan, and 4x100 Team A (Men & Women) for breaking Kawan Athletics records in their respective events.
We would also like to thank Ms. Ning, the sport psychologist, who conducted a Zoom session for our athletes and shared crucial insights on the advantages of imagery exercises prior to competitions, as well as valuable advice on goal-setting.

League 1 took place in mid-March, featuring various events such as 60m, 60m hurdles, 150m, 300m, 600m, 1600m racewalking, 5000 racewalking, and medley relay.
