    When I said kids I was referring to the younger members of the National squad, ones aged 14-21. They go back to their associations to train and these associations don't have the cash or knowledge on how to bring in quality coaches into their association. These are the 'elite juniors' and they just dont get the correct coaching at the foundation level and then at their association level.

    You are correct in that the kids aged 6-14 just need coaches who know the basics, but the problem is many of the coaches in Australia just dont have the technical ability for this. They then get lost into bad habits and horrible coaches. The bigger/stronger boys win in early levels and then fail when they age because they had little technical ability. Once again this comes back to the inability of local associations recruiting the correct coaches for their junior programs.

    Although there is another whole conversation to this that technical ability means s#!t all and that the idea is to just let kids (6-14) enjoy playing and develop their game as they want. Technical ability can be fine tuned at a later age and just cos you dont do things by the book doesn't mean you wont succeed. Also the Australian ideal is to have ALL kids participate, not just people with ability/money!

    I know Kwun is probably closer to the money (pun intended :p) as to LCW's reason for playing but I hope somewhere in there he is also playing to help promote the sport in countries where badminton is a growing minority sport. Just hope the local Aussie media comes to the party as well and do a great job raising the sport's profile!

    Where have you been, adelina76?

    You must be a LCW's fan; Your last posts were made in 2006, when LCW was here in Melbourne, Australia, for the Commonwealth Games.

    It's nice to hear from you again. :):):)

    This is Xue Song's maiden regular international tournament (not counting the junior championships), I think he exceeded expectations already.

    I don't expect youngster Hui Xirui to get the better of Jindapon whom together with Lindaweni, Sayaka T, and Pai HM are the four likely to be in the finals among them.

    Oh, Hui Xirui just equalised with G2, now for the rubber. Still think it's Jindapon's to lose.

    Tian Houwei continues to surprise me, he's choosing this tournament to raise his game another level when before I always thought his performance lacklustre. Well done but,anyway, I believe he will end up another sacrificial lamb for LCW later.
