'Injury' that destroyed Malaysia Badminton Players' Career
Haven't you all noticed that some MAS boys, girls, men and women players once got injury and have to take medical leave for long time period. After they recovered, they then unable to perform well in any tournaments which they supposingly play in top form before they got injured.
Here's are the MAS players that got injuries and thus had destroyed their career:
Wong Choong Hann - Suppose to be the reliable MS for MAS (along with Datuk Lee Chong Wei), but his fate turned in cliffhanger as he got injured during Thomas Cup Finals 2006 QF against South Korea's Park Sung Hwan. Recovered in 4th quarter of 2007, only unable to play in best form just like he played during 2000-2006. Therefore he decided to quit BAM and turn as independent player under Dunlop Sponsorship.
Julia Wong - Injured during match against Hong Kong in Sudirman Cup 2009. It takes more than a year to recover but unfortunately she have to retired from MAS squad but join KLRC to continue her career.
Wong Mew Choo - Injured possibly during 2009 (when the rising of Saina Nelwal, Tine Baun and some Thai ws players. She then no choice but to retire from badminton in order not to rise more heavy injury that burden her. She's maybe currently coaching MAS ws junior squad.
Wong Pei Thy - She played in very top form with her partner Chin Ee Hui (gaining under top 5 ranking), even CHN's Yu Yang/Du Jing (that time was World No.1) were struggling against them. Until Wong got injured from unknown situation, and she soon deform throughout they years till today. Might retired with Ee Hui after OG 2012.
There are more players unmentioned that got injuries through the years. And here's are the players that currently and still recovering from injuries (hope they get well and recover soon and faster):

It happens to other players as well. Puella Gopichand is a good example and eventually retired.

it is not just MAS players. and there is also LCW who came back from shoulder injury and came back to play the Olympics in a few months at exactly the same level as he achieved 4 years before.
(lol on KKK/TBH's "mental injury", that seems to be permanent... )

Same goes for Kido, btw, but at least he's not carried by a national association which conveniently overlooks that big big room for improvement.
Personally I think WCH was incredibly unlucky. A ruptured Achilles tendon can in fact hamper you permanently, and such injuries may occur spontaneously without any warning signs. If he did show warning signs, however, fielding him in that competition would have been completely irresponsible. Still, I respect him for coming back from that kind of horrifying injury. Many people are unable to recover from those kind of things and rather quite their sport in his circumstances.
