1st Asian Indoor Hockey Championships 2008

The 1st Sultan Azlan Shah Asian Indoor Hockey Championships was held in Stadium Indera Mulia, Ipoh from the 11th - 14th December 2008. The experience of covering an indoor hockey tournament is that you have lot's of opportunities to see defensive and offensive tactical measures executed by players to meet the challenges of their opponents. There were lots of bruising, contusions, several ankle sprains and muscle cramps and strains but there were no serious injury.

Congratulations to the Malaysian Team A for putting up a splendid display of courage and determination during the finals. Malaysia Team A lost 2-3 to Iran. A big pat on the back to the coaching team for the tactical strategy which worked well to counter the opponent's game.

Here are some of the injury photos taken from the championships:
