Isn't LCW skinny too?
LCW is skinny but he is 'muscular'. I believe that's where he generate his powerful smash from.
skinny? go stand side by side with him .
i think the only part LCW look skinny is his face
did you buy his Dare to be Champion?
the topless photo??
Good bye MHC and Vountus from BAM set up. May both of you find your path be it on the court or otherwise. I hope there is an avenue else whr for u guys to have your chance to prove BAM wrong.
otherwise... hope you have a good plan B especially if u r not well to do Family's and if you have younger siblings too support as well.
For other aspiring Badminton Stars.. pls understand that this journey is no walk in the park. Success rate is very low and guarantee of a career is paper thin value.
To the management of BAM. Late is better than nver. Correct decision but perhaps a few years too late and both parties time may have has been wasted.
BAM must be objective n performance based. They must be transparent w the realities to the players and not keep them hanging. Ppls lives are in the question.
Guys, please don't use textese. Use proper spelling, it's easier to read.
If you were him, what would you do? Go KLRC? What say you guys?
That's the best option I feel, but is there a place for him?
why dont face NCC on court?(not badminton court)
on court room? what's the chances? zero?
its depend on what u want to gain.
LCW when he was a teenager was small size & skinny. Look at the old photos in his book.
Now is muscular lah. Mak was not so skinny till he join back up, then maybe training is very tough, become very skinny

Vountus slams BAM for dropping him without proper reasons
By RAJES PAUL
KUALA LUMPUR: Doubles shuttler Vountus Indra Mawan has hit out at the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) for kicking him out of the national set-up without proper reasons.
After 10 years with the BAM, the 23-year-old was dropped after being told that he lacked the skill and talent to be in the national fold.
Although news of his dismissal had leaked out earlier, BAM general manager Kenny Goh officially handed the termination letter, effective Oct 15, to Vountus only on Wednesday – in the presence of doubles chief coach Tan Kim Her.
Vountus, who left his home in Sabah to join the Bukit Jalil Sports School (BJSS) as a Form 1 student in 2002, fired a broadside at the BAM for being unfair to him.
“I just want justice. Kenny told me that the decision to drop me, based on the coaches’ report, was because I lacked skill and talent.
“You mean the BAM waited for 10 years to tell me this? I must have been selected into the national team for a good reason in the first place,” said Vountus, who hoped that other players will not be subjected to such injustice.
Just a week ago, the BAM coaching and training committee announced that they would seek the approval of the exco before making any decisions. The exco meeting is next Wednesday.
So it seems that in Vountus’ case, they have already made up their minds.
Vountus’ partner – Mohd Lutfi Zaim Abdul Khalid – however, has been spared. Lutfi will pair up with Teo Kok Siang for the Indonesian Open (Sept 20-25) and Taiwan Open (Oct 2-7).
Prior to getting the chop, Vountus-Lutfi were ranked 48th in the world and fifth in the national team. Their most significant result in recent times was beating former Olympic and world champions Markis Kido-Hendra Setiawan of Indonesia at the Malaysian Open last year.
Vountus had earlier focused on the singles event but switched to doubles four years ago under the guidance of former national coach Rexy Mainaky.
The Sabahan is clearly irked by BAM’s decision.
“Kim Her told me that I have not performed and I can understand that. But why only me ... and not my partner? Doubles play is not about one individual,” said Vountus, who won a gold medal at the Malacca Sukma (Malaysia Games) with Ng Paou Leng in the mixed doubles event in 2010.
“I have not made any plans for the future. I am shocked by this decision
“I’ll have to look for something to do. I have spent all my years here in the BAM ... now I have to move on.”
Vountus does have a point. Whatever the reason may be for dropping a player, it is only fair that BAM show their appreciation to the player concerned for his or her contribution.
After all, Vountus has given 10 years of his life to the sport. That surely must mean something.
ncc also a good badminton players,
then he should represent bam to play.
kick the world top 4 ass!
Mak HC's side of the story
Rexy is right to leave the mess in BAM. Things changed drastically ever since Tan Kim Her was back.
MAk should move on and prove bam wrong to drop him...
Now I sympathize the juniors at BJSS...is this kind of assoc. that they want to join?
