Why you think the track cycling team were told by their coach not to speak to the media until after their event over(for major events like CWG, Asian Games). Track cycling is another sport which train overseas- Australia. Imagine, train in Aust also they feel the pressure, badminton, no need say. The other OG sport earmarked as medal potential for Msia is diving. OG still 8 months away, Pandaleela already feeling the heat of pressure of London OG, thank goodness they sometimes train in China.

Now, you are talking about money.
If money can buy Olympic GOLD medals, then the Olympic Dream of many poorer nations may want to challenge your debate. Also, Singapore (being richer than Malaysia) should do better than Malaysia.
And let's have a look at Jamaica at the Olympics;
Just look at the Medal tables that Jamaica have achieved.

and still we don't know how much Jamaica really has invested for the Olympics, don't we??...
whatever it is, the role of the money is undeniable even talent comes first...and even talent can be wasted without financial injection

Really? LCW should train overseas? Where?
Train overseas for squash, diving and cycling make sense because other countries have the upper hand in terms of experience, coaching, training facilities, programme, etc, hence the demand to send them overseas to raise the standard of those sports in MAS, and don't say it is totally a waste for taxpayers. MAS got Nicol David in the end for squash, and the athletes for track cycling and diving able to raise their abilities to at least compete with more dominant countries, whether or not they able to get medal (be patient and support them la). But badminton? Where should LCW go? China? I can imagine LYB and the rest, especially LD and CL visit LCW at training centre somewhere in China to watch LCW train. Denmark? Indonesia?
I do remember that LCW loved the training sports center in Bath, England. BAM sent the players there (was it 10 days?) before WC, and the cost was about RM54,000 if Im not mistaken. Should he go there then? A month before Olympics?

My debate is 'Money cannot buy Olympic Gold Medals'. But passion and dedication can.
Actually, Jamaica is not a poor nation; Kenya is much poorer, but look at the Gold medals that Kenya has achieved;
At the Summer Olympics, Kenya has recorded winning;
* 23 Gold
* 28 Silver
* 24 Bronze
What can Malaysia (and Singapore) say?

Of course money alone can't buy Olympic medals but it can help athletes to perform better. Then why send Nicol to Holland and the divers and cyclist for overseas training?
I merely followed your inclination to cite taxpayers' money and how they should be well spent.

you only bring up Jamaican and Kenyan where it's all about running...running is mostly physically oriented, so the talent naturally born with..
what about other sports which requires much resources mostly equipments??? Do you think Phelps could win if he swam in a pool in Jamaica?
NOTHING alone can buy success...it requires ALL resources...agree??
if you agree please come back to the original topics...

Malaysia didn't send Nicol to train in Holland. It's where Nicol chooses to train (as an independent player). I shall ask Nicol why she has chosen Holland when I see her next when she comes to Melbourne for our Squash tournament.
I rather not talk about taxpayers' monies spent on sportspersons, but to talk about the drive and the love of one's sport that one has.
