SEA GAMES 2013 FINAL RESULTS

National Silat Squad Disappointed Ahmad Shahril Floored By Biased Refereeing

From Ahmad Muliady Abdul Majid NAYPYITAW, Dec 15 (Bernama) -- The national silat squad was disappointed when a biased decision by the referee dashed Malaysia's hope for a silat gold from senior silat exponent Ahmad Shahril Zailudin in the final of the Class D (60-65kg category).

Ahmad Shahril had to be contented with the silver medal after losing 0-5 on points to the hosts' finalist Kyaw Naing Tun at the Zayer Thiri Indoor Stadium here today. The bronze medal were jointly won by Indonesia's Sapto Purnomo and Sakdo Omkaeo of Thailand.

National Silat Federation (Pesaka) secretary-general Datuk Megat Zulkarnain Omar Din said the decision of the referee in cancelling three points which should have been awarded to Ahmad Shahril jeopardised Malaysia's chances after leading by two points.

"We did not put up a protest in respect of Myanmar's Vice President who was present at the venue today, but we will raise the matter at the world silat congress," he said.Meanwhile, Ahmad Shahril, who was disappointed with the failure to defend the gold medal in this SEA Games, said he was sad that his point-winning moves were not taken into consideration by the referee. "I was shocked that after the third round, the Myanamar exponent was gaining points when he did not make any contacts.
Present at the match was Myanmar Vice President, Dr Sai Mauk Kham.

NAYPYITAW: Pencak silat exponent Mohd Al Jufferi Jamari got what he wanted for his wedding next year.The 21-year-old retained the men’s pencak silat tanding Under 70kg title at the Zeyar Thiri Indoor Stadium in Nyapyitaw on Sunday. 

 
It was an easy win for Al Jufferi, who won the gold as a rookie at the Indonesia Games in 2011. He was just too strong for Vietnam’s Dang Toan Thang, winning with a technical knockout (TKO) 5-0 triumph in the final.For Al Jufferi, he is going to present the gold to his fiance Noorhafiezaah Matasuki.

“It’s a wonderful feeling to win the gold again,” said Al Jufferi.“Noorhafiezah and I are planning to get married next year... most probably in the middle of the year. This gold is a perfect gift for her as she is also a Selangor silat exponent.”

There was, however, no joy for Ahmad Shahril Zainuddin, the other Malaysian representative in Sunday’s final. Ahmad Shahril went down 5-0 to homester Kyaw naing Thun in the men’s Under 65kg category.

SINGAPORE TEEN DELIVERS GOLD FOR SILAT

NAYPYIDAW — Three takedowns secured a SEA Games gold medal for Mohd Nur Alfian Juma’en in the silat men’s Class F (70-75kg) final at the Zeyarthiri Indoor Stadium, where he defeated Vietnam’s Pham Van Ty in a classy display.

 

The 17-year-old student from Ngee Ann Polytechnic hardly put a foot wrong against reigning world champion Pham despite a cagey start when hardly a point was scored in the opening two-minute round.

Standing strong against repeated attempts from his opponent to swipe him off his feet, Nur Alfian would return the favour with the successful “scissor move” midway through the second round that opened up the points gap and set him on the victory path. In the final round, Nur Alfian took advantage of Pham’s rush to score quick points to drop his opponent twice more to record the decisive win that delivered silat’s only gold medal of these Games.

 

The sport had come under scrutiny for failing to deliver a gold medal at the last SEA Games in Indonesia, with Singapore suffering further embarrassment for the inept handling of a gold medal match by one of its referees. And with only one representative in the 10 finals yesterday following two bronze medals last week, the onus of winning gold fell on the young shoulders of Alfian, whom team manager Sheik Alau’ddin Yacoob Marican described as a “potential world champion”.

“At this level, winning and losing is about keeping one’s composure and Alfian has shown he can go very far if he can keep his mental focus,” said Sheik. “He is a powerful fighter and also beat the Malaysian defending gold medallist Mohd Fauzi Khalid in the semi-final, and I hope he can sustain his form and win at the world championship in Indonesia next year.”

 

For Alfian, it was a happy ending to what he described as a “Hollywood moment” when the stadium lights went out just as he completed his pre-match routine. “I wasn’t fazed by that and thought it was quite cool, like in a movie,” he said. “It was a real tactical battle and my confidence grew once I was able to throw him down. This is just the beginning, I have more to learn before heading to the world championship.”

Wewey Kecewa Keputusan Dewan Juri

PESILAT Wewey Wita yang tampil di kelas C putri mengaku kesal dengan hilangnya medali emas dari genggamannya.

weweiPadahal, menurutnya, ia lebih banyak memperoleh nilai ketika melawan pesilat Thailand Rewadee Damsri di final nomor tanding, Minggu (14/12).

“Saya kesal. Seharusnya medali emas itu untuk saya. Bukan bermaksud mencari kambing hitam, saya kecewa karena dirugikan dewan juri yang memberikan kemenangan untuk pesilat Thailand,” tutur mahasiswi UNJ Jakarta ini kepada Sportanews.com, usai pertandingan.

Pesilat dari Perguruan Perisai Diri (PD) itu semula menargetkan meraih emas pada SEA Games yang pertama kali diikutinya. Namun, meski telah berupaya sekuat tenaga, ia akhirnya harus puas dengan medali perak karena ulah juri yang dianggapnya tidak fair.

“Saya telah mengorbankan kuliah untuk fokus berlatih. Namun, saya hanya memperoleh kekecewaan akibat penilaian dewan juri berat sebelah,” pungkas peraih medali emas di Kejuaraan Dunia 2012 di Thailand ini. www.sportanews.com

SEA IN SIGHT: TWO THAI TO TANDING FINALS
 
14 dec 2013- editorial, bongkot.nl
In tomorrow’s tanding finals: Rewadee Damsri (female class -60kg) and Nantachai Khansakorn (male -55kg).
 
What made these fighters reach the finals? First of all Thailand is known for its cultural and sportive heritage: Muay Thai. All Thai Silat teammembers are known to at least the basics of this straightforward fighting art. Secondly, the Thai Sport Authority already started to take part in international competitions from 1987. They recruited Muay Thai fighters to staff the national team and slowly developed a national silat structure by training and retraining students to sportsmen. All with the help of the late mr. O’ong Maryono.
 
Efforts

Thailand’s national silat team booked its greatest success at the 2007 Sea Games, delivering four gold medals for resp. Abdulloh Mahlee (currently national team trainer), Nanthachai, Chaiwat Nimma and female Jutarat Noytapa. Today, the Thai Pencak Silat Team is a mix of talented, strong and skilled fighters with names like: Nanthachai (-55kg), Panja (-50kg), Prasit Warlam (-60kg), Somkid Rakjun (-70kg).

Fauzi fails to defend Tanding U-75kg gold

NAYPYITAW: National pencak silat exponent Mohd Fauzi Khalid failed in his bid to defend his Tanding Under-75kg gold medal, after losing to Singapore’s Mohd Nur Alfian 5-0 in the semi-finals at the Zeyar Thiri Indoor Stadium on Friday.

The 2009 and 2011 SEA Games gold medallist failed to recover from a injury to his left foot picked up in the quarter-final on Wednesday and lost out to an opponent whom he had always beaten in the past.

The police lance corporal, who had to settle for bronze following the loss, said that he’s disappointed with his performance but accepted that injuries are part and parcel of the sport.

The 26-year-old Fauzi added that he might take a break from silat and focus on his job before thinking about the next SEA Games in Singapore in 2015.

“Injuries are a norm in this sport ... I’m just unlucky to not recover in time. My left foot was swollen and I felt pain when I put my foot on the ground,” said Fauzi after his bout.

“I had a slow start in the first round before improving in the second and managed to close the gap in the final round but I was felled in the last five seconds. It blew my chances of winning the bout.

“This is my first defeat to Alfian in three meetings since 2010 ... I’m disappointed with the loss but life goes on and I have planned to focus on my career after going home.”

In the women’s Tanding Under-60kg category, Siti Zubaidah Che Omar also had to settle for the bronze medal after suffering a 5-0 defeat to Thailand’s Rewadee Damsri in the semi-final.

Helmi gives as good as he gets

Despite bleeding as a result of a cut on his lower lips after a punch by Jul Omhar of the Philippines, Helmi continued to battle on and eventually won 5-0 in the men’s below 55kg quarter-final bout at the Zeyar Thiri Indoor Stadium on Monday.

Helmi will face Thailand’s Panja Ngonentim in the semi-finals on Thursday. Panja, who received first round bye, beat Bo Thammavongsa of Laos 5-1. Helmi, who is competing in his third SEA Games, said that Jul hit his lips three times in the three-round contest.

“He should be disqualified for using his fist. I am disappointed that the referee did not stop the contest,” said the 28-year-old Helmi, who won the silver in the World Championships in Bangkok in 2011.

Helmi, however, faces an uphill task in the semi-finals. He lost to Panja in a friendly competition in Kuala Lumpur last year. “I have been training hard since early this year. I will go all out to beat Panja for a place in the final,” said Helmi.

Siti overcomes odds

NAYPYITAW: Rookie Pencak Silat exponent Siti Zubaidah overcame a jittery start to beat Singapore’s Nurul Sulaiha 5-0 in the quarter-finals of the below 60kg category in the Myanmar SEA Games in Naypyitaw on Tuesday.

The petite Siti, who was dwarfed by her opponent by about 13cm, stood strong to win the last two bouts to deny the lanky Sulaiha at the Zeyar Thiri Indoor Stadium.

The Alor Setar local who joined the national team last year said, “I was confident of a win but was slow to get in to the bout.” “It’s cold here in the hall! That might be the reason for my slow start ... my opponent also did well in the first bout to lead but I didn’t give up and kept pressing for the win.

“I took a defensive approach to the fight. Usually a smaller opponent would go on the offence. I guess it caught Sulaiha off guard and enabled me to score valuable points.”

Siti, who is making her debut at the SEA Games stage, will meet another towering opponent – Thailand’s Rewadee Damsri - in her semi-final bout scheduled for Saturday.

The 22-year-old said she has to set aside the frustration of a slow start and strategise for another uphill battle against Rewadee. “The slow start almost cost me the bout and I have to buck up for the semi-final. There’s plenty of room for me to improve and I hope to be at my best on Saturday.”
