AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE (Part 1)
We needed to play floorball in Myanmar as a demonstration sport in SEA Games 2013 before it could be approved as an official medal sport in 2015. So, we dispatched Stefan to coach the Myanmar team. It was a surreal experience and the most fascinating events happened there. Believe it or not, we found ourselves coaching around a boxing ring in a gym. We also had to get a supply of sports shoes donated by other teams as we realised the Myanmar players were playing in football boots with studs. We found ourselves in a series of comical situations. As we sipped our tea sitting on chairs that were way too short for us, we scratched our heads in frustration as we struggled to think of ways to communicate with the Myanmar players since the language barrier proved to be another inconvenience. Thankfully, we were able to overcome these series of events due to this floorball was finally recognised as an official SEA games medal sport in 2015.
