S2E72: Behind The Eight Ball

Melvin Chia, Malaysian Snooker & Billiards Federation President

S2E72: Behind The Eight Ball

Times are changing for the snooker scene in Malaysia, as the sport becomes the victim of unhealthy perceptions and growing vacancies. Every sport needs a star talent — a people's champion — and the Malaysian Snooker & Billiards Federation has created development programs in order to culture the next generation of phone-free cue players. Joining us is MSBF President Melvin Chia as he explains how snooker, once home to household names such as Sam Chong and Moh Keen Hoo, plans to paint a new image as the Philippines SEA Games closes in

Produced by: Daryl Ong, Haresh Deol
