Recently a video showing a coach of a volleyball team slapping two of his teen players went viral on social media. The incident happened during the 2022 Malaysia Youth U-14 Volleyball Championship in Kota Tinggi, Johor, which was held from Dec 14 to 16 last year. The coach has been receiving widespread criticism from members of the public. On top of that, Minister of Youth & Sports Hannah Yeoh also called the coach’s action “wrong.” In response to the incident, the Malaysia Volleyball Association (MAVA) temporarily suspended the coach from being further involved in the sport. However, there are some members of the public who think that the coach should not be ostracized as his actions are “all part and parcel of sport.”
