Ipoh hosted the 2018 Perak Hat at the Institut Pendidikan Guru Kampus Ipoh on February 24.
The event was organised by the Ipohbug organisation and its Ultimate Frisbee members. The theme of the event was ‘Personalities’.
A total of 250 players from multiple states within the country took the time off to come together to have fun and build friendships through Ultimate Frisbee. Even Malaysia’s very own Ultimate Frisbee coach Jamie Craig made the drive down to Ipoh to enjoy himself at the event.
Players were designated into numerous teams based upon the identities of famous philanthropists, sports personalities, entrepreneurs, and numerous leaders from the past and present. Personalities such as Mark Zuckerberg, Mahatma Gandhi, David Beckham, and even Albert Einstein were chosen to portray the teams’ titles.
The winners for Pool A of Perak Hat was ‘The Defenders’ with a score of 12-6, whereas the winners for Pool B was ‘The Sportsman’ with a score of 9-8.
The participants had an amazing time meeting new friends and enjoying the Lost World of Tambun during their R&R time.
It truly was an amazing event as it epitomized what Malaysia is all about, unity, racial integration, and harmony which coincides with our 1 Malaysia Spirit.
