Though Scattered, Discipline Given Highest Priority - Chef-de-mission

JAKARTA, Nov 9 (Bernama) -- Although the 456 members of the Malaysian SEA Games contingent in Jakarta will stay in 21 hotels across the Indonesian capital, team discipline would be given the utmost priority, said Malaysia's chef-de-mission Datuk Naim Mohamad.

He said the team's management would be monitoring discipline at all the 25 venues the members will be in action in Jakarta.

"It will not be easy as 348 ahletes and 108 officials will be staying in 21 hotels and competing in 25 different venues. I will be getting the help of the contingent's secretariat in this matter," he told reporters here Wednesday.

Naim will be assisted by the deputy chef-de-mission in Jakarta, T.Kumar, who is also the deputy honorary-secretary of the Olympic Council of Malaysia and Datuk Abdul Jalil Abdullah, the National Sports Council's Sports Management Division director.

For this edition of the SEA Games, hosts Indonesia are not providing a Games village, forcing all contingents to make accomodation arrangements at hotels nearest to the competition venues.
