Channarong was a pretty good player, having whitewashed the top English players and even the famous Danish Finn Kobbero in the All England in the early 1960s, only to lose to Earland Kops in the final. He and Earland Kops toured Canada in the 1960s, with the former deciding to stay. But in the early 1960/61 Thomas Cup Finals, he was beaten by Indonesia's Tan Joe Hock and FA Sonneville.
    There were no World Championships at that time.

    VERY GOOD History lesson there. Yes, you are right that Chan stayed behind and became the coach at the Glencoe. I'm sorry if I was off on the World Champion designation. Everybody around the Glencoe referred to him being champion but you are quite correct in that there was no WC at that time.

Chan, as he was called, is one of the most genuine and nicest men I have ever met. His example has shaped many lives and he effected myself by his example. Of note Chan doesn't like the new scoring much either as it may be good for television but the loss of the stategy is being dropped in favour of power and attacking. Chan felt that was what doubles was for.
    Isn't Ardy also the coach of the Canadian national team?

    I have never heard of this Channarong Rattannasangseung. Where is he from? I am sure if he was a former world champion I would have heard of him. What world champion was he of?[/QUOTE]


    Yes Ardy is one of the coaches of the National Centre at the Glencoe Club. In effect he is a National Team coach but the system here has the players scattered around the country in clubs so there is no home base for them.

    hmmm......Ardy Wiranata, one of my favourites when i was small. still remember his cute little face, and especially when he had long hair, he looked abit like hamster.....hehehe Another hero of mine was Hariyanto Arbi, and i have always felt that he was one of the sifu of today's attacking game in MS (before he got injured in his knee).....

    Hey Sabathiel! I saw Ardy this morning and I mentioned your reference to his nemesis at 15 years old and he wondered who that was and if he might know your name as well. Pm me so I can relay to Ardy who you and your friend are! We chatted about the conversation here on the forum and he reiterated his dislikes, and mine, about the new version of singles.

    Ardy was getting ready to coach a bunch of juniors in a tournament at my club and as usual he was smiling and looking forward to another great day of badminton!

    can LCW become a better player if he is to play like KKK/TBH by having more agressive attacking play, flat drives? Instead of giving his opponents more chance to attack him. Attack is the best defence.

    The way i see why LCW has lost his rhythm lately is not due to his pressure but others have improved alot in their attacking play. His secret formula has already been cracked by others esp the Chinese.

    LCW has to change his play of amazing saves and counter attack.....into more aggressive attacking play, he needs powerful smashes like LD n TH.

    just watch some badminton clip on youtube. search for "crazy badminton" at www.youtube.com.

    that's the reason why badminton is the most tiring racquet sport in this world and all the professional players are underpaid. amazing.....

    i agree with you. LCW does not start to attack first but prefer to wait for his opponent to attack first. then LCW will start diving all over his court and the spactators will clap. LCW must stop his defensive and counter attack style. He need to attack first and must improve his smash too. Lin Dan is improving everyday..

    as we can see, many top players are aggressive players, not stroke or defensive player. LCW must improve on his attacking play. if not, he will lag behind
