    Unsuccessful perhaps due to their age??? Stuart will be 23 soon and I'm quite certain that Rebecca is NOT between 17 & 22.

    Update from Badminton Australia

    "Congratulations to Susan Dobson and Stuart Gomez who were selected to travel to Saabrucken Germany to train at the first IBF Training Centre to get underway. 6 players from the European Badminton Confederation, 6 from the Asian Badminton Confederation, 4 from the Americas, 2 from Oceania, and 2 from Africa Confederation were selected to attend the 2 month training – a total of 10 men and 10 women aged 18 – 22 years old. All are Singles players."

    Looks like John Moody (NZL) pulled out?

    what were Sun Jun and Dai Yun doing in Australia? are they there to play badminton only or looking for a job?

    were their 2nd halves (ie. Ge Fei and Liu Yong) there also?

    What I find even more interesting is that the player from Pakistan just took off and left. I am sure that most of us if given the opportunity to train at the centre would gladly take the two months to do so and work to qualify for the olympics in 2008.

    So sad to let the opportunity slip away.

    Ah well, maybe cause in pakistan cricket and hockey are more attractive sports as compared to badminton? But that still doesn't answer the question. If he was good enough to be selected why didn't he make the most of his opportunity. I would stay for the 2 months definitely if ever I was given such a chance . No complaints will come from me throughout the whole course of the training scheme.

    Oh well, another one bites the dust.

    Default Aussies Rate Highly in first IBF Training Centre Results

    From Badminton Australia, E-mail newsletter, Badminton Briefs #25

    Aussies Rate Highly in first IBF Training Centre Results
    Congratulations to Susan Dobson (TAS) and Stuart Gomez (NSW) who performed very well at the two month training camp at the first IBF World Training Centre in Saabruecken Germany. Stuart made a short presentation to the IBF Annual Meeting on his experiences. The second intake in Saabruecken is starting in early June and the first intake at the new facility in Guangzhou starts mid June. Badminton Australia is making recommendations to the OBC for sports at the IBF World Training facilities throughout the year. A terrific opportunity for young (18 22 years) talented athletes.
