Wow! Thank you so much! Well, what can i say? i'm extremely glad and relieved that he's not leaving. I feel very sorry for him, after all, he trained so hard for the Olympics and he so wanted that medal. Oh well, i guess all we can do is to wish him better luck next time!!

all valid and unprejudice reasons given by WCH.
it amazing what does one learn when opinions are expressed from bottom up rather than top down. Sounds like quite mickey training routines in olympic standards

how feared is (was) wong choon han?
WCH is a very feared man in badminton.... even among the ranks of the china team.
i have lost the article but i recall very clearly that WCH was the yardstick Lin Dan used to gauge himself. when LD beat WCH for the 2003 China Open, LD expressed that he finally new he had 'arrived' and his confidence rose ever since and went on a grand prix winning streak that year and the year after.

his room arrangemtn is very very simple, just a bed, a cupboard, a desk, that's all. And he likes to read outside his house, beside the garden.

Choong Hann to play in German League
By RAJES PAUL
PETALING JAYA: Wong Choong Hann may be nearing the twilight of his badminton career but he is not prepared to hang up his racquet, yet.
He has decided to make his career a more colourful one by signing a deal with a German League club in Berlin, Brandenburger Sports Community (SG EBT). Choong Hann will leave for Germany after his wife gives birth to their second child.
“The league starts this month and it will run until March. But I have been given the exemption to join at the end of the month. I will wait for my wife to give birth first,” he said.
“The club have given me a good deal ... one that I cannot refuse. I am looking forward to the experience of playing in the German League.
“I will not be there throughout the six months. I will return home whenever the league takes a break. The club will pay for all my expenditure and travel.”
His club have another foreigner in Polish doubles player Michal Logosz.
Choong Hann said that the BA of Malaysia have given him their blessing to play in Germany but his future with the association had not been discussed.
It is clear that the 31-year-old Choong Hann will not be part of the BAM's plans for the 2012 London Olympics.
He competed in his third Olympics in Beijing last month. He eliminated defending champion Taufik Hidayat of Indonesia in the first round but was beaten by Taiwanese Hsieh Yu-hsing in the next round.
Even if Choong Hann remains in the BAM fold, he will be more of a sparring partner and mentor for the young players in the national team.
Choong Hann said that his involvement with the BAM would depend on the role given to his coach Wong Tat Meng.
“I will wait and see what are the new tasks for my coach. I will help out if my services are still needed.”
The BAM are proud that Malaysian players are sought after in the leagues overseas. Nusa Mahsuri veteran Mohd Roslin Hashim, the Penang Open singles champion on Sunday, had a six-month stint with the Vendsyssyl Badminton Club in the Danish League in 2006.

I am one of his big fan.
He is highly respected inside and outside badminton court. He is a feared opponent inside badminton court and he is a real gentleman outside badminton court.
It is good news to many people he doesn't want to quit badminton. I hope he can consider to be a Malaysian coach. He has many thing to give out to young Malaysian players. He has all round skills and is a high achiever.( World silver medal and many titles under his belt).Vastly experienced, WCH also has the intelligent and the temperament to be a coach. In addition to single, WCH played men double and mix double also in Commonwealth game and SEA game if I am not mistaken.
If BAM is smart they should made him a coach before other countries grap him.

WCH will also team up with Chetan Anand and Vladislav Druzhchenko next season, so for german level this league is not bad...

The injury really sets him back. Too bad. Certainly nice to see him during his peak. Good speed.
Now days in Malaysian circuit, there are lots of coaches... very competitive now. I believe its good to have more focus by having 1 coach to 2 players at most. Else, there maybe too many players for the coach to handle. eg. Misbun can choose 2 players, then Rashid can choose another 2, WCH can choose another 2. 6 good top class players for the country should be good enough. The rest beef up on juniors.
Then same for doubles. Rexy takes 2 pairs. YKH takes another 2. The rest can go to KLRC or just be sparring partners.
Of course not forgetting the ladies and mix doubles. So, lots of opportunities for coaches and players.
