Kejohanan Catur Majlis Sukan Sekolah-Sekolah Malaysia 2009 - Results Summary

Selangor Schools garnered 112 points to emerge 2009 Champion in the recent inter-State schools event organised by Majlis Sukan Sekolah-Sekolah Malaysia. The event was hosted by Majlis Sukan Sekolah Selangor and held in Klang recently from 16th - 20th March 2009.

Selangor's star performers were NJM Nur Nabila Azman Hisham (Girl U-12) and Yeoh Li Tian (Boy U-12), along with two other Gold medals contributed by fellow team mates Boys Team Under-15 and Girls Team Under-12.

Runners-up was Kuala Lumpur, although ahead in medal count was edged out (by 5 points) based on MSSM's point system in determining the overall championship and standings.

The Klang Valley schools ( covering Selangor and Kuala Lumpur) stamped their mark in this annual event sweeping 8 gold medals (which carried the most points) out of 12 on offer. In step with Selangor's feat was Kuala Lumpur's Yeap Eng Chiam (bottom left) who took the Boy Under-15 title and Lim Zhuo Ren (bottom right) with the prestigious Boy Under-18 title. Coincidentally both had donned CAS or Selangor State colours in many local competitions. Of special mention is NWM Alia Anin Azwa Bakri (right pic) the Girl Under-18 winner representing Malacca schools but is regarded a 'permanent resident' of the Klang Valley chesswise having represented CAS/Selangor in so many occasions.

( For the record the other 3 Gold medal winners were Perak through Girl U-18, Kelantan - TeamGirls U-15 and Johore - TeamGirls U-18)

Based on the total 17 medals amassed by Selangor and Kuala Lumpur schools and the remaining 19 shared by the other 14 States the former had the numbers and depths to continue to dominate this event.

Congratulations Majlis Sukan Sekolah Selangor!
