The Malaysian cheerleading season ended with a bang last weekend at CHEER 2015, the country’s biggest tournament.
Over 8,000 people showed up throughout the day-long event at Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, where the Cyrens from SM Sri Kuala Lumpur put on an incredible performance to win their sixth consecutive All-Girls title.
The other big winners at CHEER 2015 were Mickeymitez from SMK Damansara Jaya, who won the Co-Ed category (for mixed-gender teams), and Rayvens, who won the All-Girls Junior category.
There was an added sense of excitement this year as youth news platform R.AGE ran a social video broadcast, which could be viewed by cheerleading fans around the world.
R.AGE uploaded all 39 teams’ performances immediately to the CHEER website, which was complemented with behind-the-scenes interviews on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
Audiences were able to immediately comment on the performances and share the videos on social media through their phones.
