Badminton: The future should be BAM's only priority
THE BA of Malaysia (BAM) coaching and training committee (CTC) will be finalising several issues today and the decisions must be aimed at lifting the future of Malaysian badminton and not just offering stop-gap measures.
Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong's request to train under Pang Cheh Chang looks certain to be granted but the CTC's role should not end there as the top pair should be told in no uncertain terms that this is their last chance in order to strike gold at next year's London Olympics.
While it is acceptable that players are allowed to voice their choice of coach, BAM has been too lenient -- to the extent of allowing Kien Keat to miss training for several days with the player offering lame excuses.
The CTC must warn both players that such actions will not be tolerated.
If Kien Keat believes missing training is the best way of letting his intentions known, it is the CTC's responsibility to educate the player.
Even if national doubles coach Rexy Mainaky is not suitable to coach Kien Keat-Boon Heong any longer, an official decision has to be made.
The players, no matter who they are, shouldn't take the law into their own hands as there are rules to be followed.
It was unforgivable that Rexy was not informed of Kien Keat's absence and even BAM, which is believed to have known the situation much earlier, didn't make an effort to inform the coach.
The CTC is expected to retain Rexy but the coach must be given specific targets to achieve until his contract expires in 2013, and not just be given a couple of pairs to work without any clear goals.
There is a possibility Rexy may be asked to take control of the women's doubles, a position to be vacated by Cheh Chang, but the CTC must first ensure that the Indonesian can be effective in training them.
The CTC should also consider utilising Rexy to guide junior pairs who will graduate to the national senior ranks after the World Junior Championships in November but whatever the decision, it must be target orientated.
The position of the high performance director is another issue which has not been finalised and there is a possibility that an official appointment could be delayed until December.
Datuk James Selvaraj's one-year stint ended last week but he is likely to continue until the end of the year.
If the CTC wants to give Selvaraj a longer run, he should be considered until the Olympics as it is pointless appointing a new candidate in January.

BAM should just send KKK/TBH to train with the WD since they wanna train under Pang The WD coach!
After all, Pang is making progress with Woon/Vivian... not good to stop 1/2 way
also a good way to build up KKK/TBH confidence as they can win all their training matches

Three heads to coach Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong
====== * ====== parts of article ====== * ======
Ng Chin Chai said it is better to have three heads (Tan Kim Her, Pang Cheh Chang and Rosman Razak) to help Kien Keat-Boon Heong.
Their immediate goal will be to get Kien Keat-Boon Heong on the right track for the (2012) London Olympic Games.
The committee, however, sent out a strong message to Kien Keat-Boon Heong.
“We may have made the changes to suit them but we want them to know that whether they succeed or fail depends on them. They must make sacrifices, work hard and own up. We will talk to them to ensure that they will be committed and disciplined,” said Chin Chai.

TAN Kim Her will take over from Rexy Mainaky as the head coach of the men's doubles squad while the former Olympic champion is now the women's and mixed doubles chief coach.
The sweeping changes were announced by the BA of Malaysia (BAM) coaching and training committee (CTC) yesterday, which also said the elite and back-up doubles squads will be merged. The same applies to the singles squads.
Kim Her, who is currently the back-up doubles chief coach, will handle the combined squad of eight pairs, including Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong, and will be assisted by Pang Cheh Chang and Rosman Razak.
CTC chairman Ng Chin Chai also confirmed that while Kien Keat-Boon Heong's request to train under Cheh Chang had been given consideration, the committee felt that Kim Her should have the final say.
The combined singles squad will have Rashid Sidek as the chief coach and he will be assisted by Tey Seu Bock, Hendrawan and Hazwan Jamaluddin.
Chin Chai said this is to ensure Lee Chong Wei gets the benefit of sparring with a bigger group of players in his bid to win gold at the London Olympics.
"We didn't achieve our target at the World Championships and after discussing and receiving feedback from relevant parties, we decided on these changes with the target being gold in the Olympics," said Chin Chai.
"Kim Her will take charge of the combined men's doubles squad while Rexy will take over the women and mixed doubles squads with designated assistants while Rashid is the head coach of the men's singles.
"The move is to help Chong Wei and Kien Keat-Boon Heong get quality sparring while it will also help the younger players improve.
"Rashid can request for as many young players as he wants to help Chong Wei and it will be the same for Kim Her. We believe this is the way forward and will certainly enhance our preparation for the Olympics.
"Kien Keat-Boon Heong's main target is to reach the top four in the world ranking when the qualifying period ends (on April 30) as this will give them a better chance of reaching the semi-finals in London.
"We have not decided that Cheh Chang will be the specific coach for Kien Keat-Boon Heong. This will be decided once Kim Her returns (from the Taiwan Open). Cheh Chang will definitely train the duo but there is a possibility that Kim Her and Rosman will also be involved in their training.
"Rexy's target is to ensure that one mixed doubles and Wong Pei Tty-Chin Eei Hui qualify for the Olympics. It will be a very good achievement if he can guide Pei Tty-Eei Hui to the semi-finals.
"CTC will also propose to the BAM council that a special Olympic project management committee be formed to monitor the preparation for the London Olympics. The committee will be headed by a senior executive council member and will comprise members from BAM, National Sports Council (NSC) and National Sports Institute (NSI)."
Rexy took the change as a challenge and said he will be focused on helping Pei Tty-Eei Hui qualify for the Olympics, while also guiding Jeremy Gan to do likewise in ensuring Chan Peng Soon-Goh Liu Ying achieve the same in the mixed doubles.
"Everything has been in the dark for a couple of weeks and it has finally ended. At least, I know what is my responsibility and it is a different challenge for me. Pei Tty-Eei Hui will be retiring after the Olympics and I want them to qualify and also do well in London," said Rexy.
The CTC also confirmed the Sea Games squad with Liew Daren, Arif Latif, Chong Wei Feng, Goh Soon Huat, Lim Khim Wah, Goh V Shem, Hoon Thien How, Ong Jian Guo, Ong Soon Hock and Mak Hee Chun forming the men's team.
The women's team comprises Tee Jing Yi, Lydia Cheah, Yang Li Lian, Sonia Cheah, Vivian Hoo, Woon Khe Wei, Chong Sook Chin, Lim Yin Loo, Marylen Ng and Pai Pei Jing.

Rexy was a proven baddy legend and the intensity he and Ricky played the game was a product of their tough training and hardwork, there is no other way. Ditto for LD, LCW, FHF/CY, these players train hard to be what they are today. KKK/TBH attitude, jesting, slow, physically out of shape tell us how they trained, they will blown away 5 straight times by KOR 2nd pair, who are simply speed and power and in post game interview said they read TBH/KKK game clearly. Simply put, KKK/TBH cannot take Rexy training method, too demanding and too hard.
So go blame the coach, I suggest to look at the mirror, the problem is with the players. So with Rexy KKK/TBH got AG gold, AE gold, WC silver...so let's see in 11 month time, whether the brilliance (or nutcase) of NCC in assigning 3 coaches to train KKK/TBH, is it gold or early KO...NCC better pray they don't meet their 5 straight times conqueror at OLY12, then I dunno who NCC will blame this time...maybe blame a Sidek, just any Sidek since they are so many of them in BAM anyway

All the reshuffles and re-designations of coaches seemed to be heading in a backward direction. It was like throwing under performed employees around to different department heads who has yet to prove their worth (some proven failure) and hope for miracle to happen. But it should be alright for them as local defected products should be own-up by unrecognized local manufacturers.
The only good news is that the WD and XD department is going to have an established imported operator.

The recent WC has shown that that passion and fire in KKK/TBH was somehow not there anymore. KOR's second MD made mince meat out of them. I tend to agree with OTB that perhaps this top MAS pair has not worked hard enough to justify Rexy's devotion to them.
Just compare them with the top 'veteran' CHN duo and you can see the difference in their approach and focus in the game.
There is little hope in KKK/TBH winning the London Olympic gold. It has become worse with the latest changes unless the pair really bucks up and becomes more serious in wanting the title.

these 2 guys are just not good enough, as simple as that. they'd a good year in 2007, that's all about it. since then they'd won 3 t'ments and none of them are considered as majors. once at home and twice against the fairly average DEN pair, MB/CM.
winning the olympics gold! dream on. such an excellent coach as Rexy just wasted on them.
