    Pemain balik ke pangkal jalan

    Oleh Ahmad Khawari Isa



    SELAMAT KEMBALI: Zolkples (kanan) bersalaman dengan (dari kiri) Teik Chai, Soon Hock, Bin Shen dan Woon Fui di pejabatnya semalam.

    Empat sekawan mahu kekal bersama BAM bantu misi emas Olimpik
    4 friends/muskeeters/stooges (he he, depends of what you think them) want to remain with BAM to help OG mission

    GANGGUAN yang terjelma, hanya bersifat sementara apabila empat pemain - Tan Bin Shen, Ong Soon Hock, Gan Teck Chai dan Lin Woon Fui - semalam sah membatalkan hasrat keluar daripada skuad badminton negara.

    Pendirian itu diputuskan mereka selepas mengambil kira kepentingan negara dalam misi mengejar kilauan emas Sukan Olimpik hasil pertemuan hampir sejam dengan Ketua Pengarah Majlis Sukan Negara (MSN), Datuk Zolkples Embong.

    The disturbance was only temporary when all 4 players retracted their desire to leave the national team.

    Their stand was made when taking into account the national interest to chase the OG gold. They met with NSC Director Daril Zolkples yesterday for an hr.

    “Bukan wang jadi faktor keputusan mahu menarik diri sebelumnya. Ia lebih kerana kami berpendapat masa depan kami tidak begitu cerah dan mahu mencari penaja sendiri untuk membolehkan kami menyertai pelbagai kejohanan.

    “Apa yang kami mahukan ialah peluang untuk menyertai kejohanan demi kerjaya kami. Apa yang penting ialah keutamaan kepada misi negara,” kata Teck Chai selepas pertemuan itu.
    Gan Teck Chai said :
    "It's not money that was the main factor. It was more cos we think our future not so bright and want to find own sponsors to enable us to participate in various tournaments."

    "What we want are opportunities to enter tournaments, for the sake of our careers. What is important is priority to the country's mission."

    Malah keempat-empat pemain itu menegaskan betapa mereka tiada sebarang masalah dengan jurulatih, Rexy Mainaky yang disifatkan sebagai amat bagus dalam membantu meningkatkan prestasi mereka.


    Kami amat gembira dengan Rexy. Dia jurulatih yang bagus. Kami juga tidak sampai hati untuk meninggalkan rakan sepasukan lain kerana hubungan yang begitu rapat.

    All 4 players emphasised that they dont have problems with their coach, Rexy, who is regarded as very good in helping to beef up their performance.

    "We are very happy with Rexy. He's a great coach. We also have no heart to leave our team mates cos the relationship are so close.

    “Kami lakukan ini demi negara. Kami juga gembira dengan jaminan Datuk Zolkples untuk membantu kami menyelesaikan sebarang masalah yang ada,” katanya.

    Empat pemain itu sebelumnya sudah mengadakan pertemuan dengan Pengurus Besar Persatuan Badminton Malaysia (BAM), Kenny Goh, beberapa hari lalu tetapi keputusan muktamad kekal hanya diputuskan selepas bertemu Zolkples.

    " We do this for the country. We are also happy with Datuk Z's assurances of helping us to solve any problems."

    The 4 players met with BAM GM Kenny GOh a few days ago but the final decision to stay was only decided after meeting Zolkples.

    “Kenny ada minta kami untuk kekal bersama pasukan negara. Malah kami juga pernah berbincang mengenainya dengan Rexy. Saya percaya ini adalah keputusan terbaik untuk kami,” kata Soon Hock.

    "Kenny asked us to remain. We also discussed it with Rexy. I believe this is the best decision to make." - Ong SH.

    Zolkples pula jelas lega dengan pendirian keempat-empat pemain itu dan turut memuji mereka kerana sedia memainkan peranan untuk membantu rakan sepasukan lain menyiapkan diri buat menghadapi temasya Olimpik di Beijing, Ogos nanti.

    “Biarpun tidak mampu layak, mereka sedia memainkan peranan untuk membantu pemain lain. Mereka juga pastinya akan beruntung kerana beroleh peluang berlatih bersama-sama pemain utama negara.

    Zolkples was relieved with the stand of the 4 players and praised them for being ready to play a role to help team mates for OG preparations.

    "ALthough they dont qualify, they are prepared to play their role to help other players. They too will benefit cos have the chance to spar with top pairs of the country."

    “Bagi saya, jika ada masalah sekalipun, ia mampu diatasi. Mereka juga bersetuju. Saya akan berbincang dengan BAM untuk mencari jalan penyelesaian jika ada masalah,” kata Zolkples.

    Empat pemain itu sebelumnya menghantar surat mahu menarik diri ketika Terbuka Malaysia, minggu lalu. Namun, dengan pendirian terbaru itu, ia pasti melegakan BAM yang jelas perlukan segala bantuan demi merealitikan matlamat menamatkan penantian pingat emas di Beijing nanti.

    "For me, whatever the problems are, can be solved. They also agreed. I will discuss with BAM to find solutions."

    With this new stand, BAM will be relieved as they need every help possible to realise the goal of an OG gold.

    Opps, too busy translating, over the 15 min limit.
    The above article is from Berita Harian.

    There's one more below for their die-hard fans.
    And that's the official statements. For un-official ones, I'm sure you all will be bugging Ants.

    Thus, the saga ends... for now. How come they also like their coach, say go, then stay..... hmmmm student follow teacher's style...

    Dua beregu kekal



    DUA beregu, Tan Bin Shen-Ong Soon Hock dan Gan Teik Chai-Lin Woon Fui bersetuju untuk kekal di bawah naungan Persatuan Badminton Malaysia (BAM) sekurang-kurangnya sehingga Sukan Olimpik, Ogos depan.

    The 2 pairs will remain with BAM at least until OG in August.

    Mereka membuat keputusan itu selepas mengadakan pertemuan dengan Ketua Pengarah Majlis Sukan Negara, Datuk Zolkples Embong di pejabatnya di Bukit Jalil, semalam.

    Menurut Zolkples, kedua-dua pasangan itu turut meminta BAM memberikan lebih perhatian kepada mereka termasuk dengan lebih kerap menghantar menyertai kejohanan antarabangsa.

    The 2 pairs also asked BAM to give more attention to them by sending them for International tournaments more often.

    “Mereka yang meminta petemuan ini diadakan dan selepas kami berbincang, keempat-em- pat pemain bersetuju menarik balik surat peletakan jawatan da- ripada BAM.

    “Mereka bersetuju untuk kekal bersama BAM sekurang-kurangnya sehingga Sukan Olimpik bagi membantu persiapan tiga beregu utama negara (Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong, Choong Tan Fook-Lee Wan Wah dan Mohd Zakry Latif-Mohd Fairuzizuan Tazari) menerusi peranan sebagai rakan sepela- tih,” k at an y a .

    "They have agreed to stay at least till OG as sparring partners for KKK/TBH, CTF/LWW, Zakry/Fairuz."

    Zolkples berkata, dia akan mengadakan perbincangan dengan Setiausaha Kehormat BAM, Ganga Rao, mengenai permintaan pemain terbabit yang inginkan lebih perhatian daripada pers at u an .

    “Mereka menyangka dengan Sukan Olimpik berlangsung tahun ini, tumpuan BAM akan lebih kepada beregu utama.

    “Malah, kedua-dua beregu menyatakan kesediaan sanggup mencari sendiri penaja membiayai kos menyertai kejohanan luar negara jika BAM tidak ber- hasrat hantar mereka.

    Z: "They thought this being OG year, BAM's focus will be on top pairs. They are even ready to find their own sponsors to participate in overseas tournaments if BAM is not sending them."

    “Tapi saya akan bincang dengan Ganga terlebih dahulu kerana pasti ada jalan penyelesaian kepada isu ini,” katan y a.

    Kedua-dua beregu itu mengejutkan arena badminton tem- patan apabila menghantar surat peletakan jawatan kepada BAM ketika Terbuka Malaysia ber- langsung minggu lalu.

    "I will discuss this with Ganga (BAM Sec General) as there's sure to be a solution to this."

    Sementara itu Bin Shen ber- kata, mereka berpuas hati dengan hasil pertemuan dengan Zolkples.

    “Saya ingin tegaskan bahawa tindakan kami menghantar su- rat peletakan jawatan bukannya disebabkan wang atau sikap ti- dak patriotik, sebaliknya kami berasakan langkah itu adalah yang terbaik untuk masa depan badminton kami.
    “Hasil pertemuan dengan Da- tuk Zolkples, kami bersetuju untuk kekal bersama BAM dan membantu rakan-rakan kami dalam persiapan mereka ke Ol i m p i k , ” k at an y a .

    Tan Bin Shen : "I want to emphasize that our decision to send resign letters was not because of money or being un-patriotic,we feel this was the best move for our badminton careers."
    "After meeting Datuk Z, we have decided to remain to assist our team mates in OG preparations."

    The summary of all the media news (inlcuding those not posted here):
    On the players side :
    1) Will stay on with BAM at least until OG 2008 as sparring partners to team mates.
    2) They dont have conflict with Rexy. All say Rexy is a great coach.
    3) They were not intending to go any private baddy club, just wanted to look for private sponsors so they can go more International tourneys. Currently BAM dont allow players to get private sponsors.

    On NSC Director & BAM's part :
    1) Possibility of BAM getting more private sponsors so more players can go International tourneys.
    2) Flexibility to allow players to find own private sponsors if BAM cant send them. Players still under BAM umbrella.

    LOL! Yeah!!! very happy till i teared!!! actually he would still be playing badminton if he remained on his stand to quit, but at least now i don't have to worry abt their sponsorship and other factors!!!

    Really happy that something good came out of this, that the authorities will look into the four shuttlers' grouses and assure them of their future! so i guess after this, they won't be neglected out of SS! YAYYY!

    And very touched by the players. throughout this they did not insult BAM or rexy, even thanked them for bringing them thus far. and even put up with all the insults and negative comments directed at them. love their attitude!

    one word: YAYNESS!!!

    Men’s doubles pairs get to compete in more Opens


    KUALA LUMPUR: The wishes of two national men's doubles pairs to compete in more Open international tournaments have been granted.

    Tan Bin Shen-Ong Soon Hock and Gan Teik Chai-Woon Lin Fui, who did not get to play in the Korean Open last week, are expected to be in the Badminton Association of Malaysia's (BAM) list for the back-to-back All-England and Swiss Open tournaments.

    The official list of players for the two tournaments in Birmingham from March 4-9 and Basel from March 11-16 will be released today.

    Yesterday, the four shuttlers had a two-hour meeting with BAM general manager Kenny Goh.

    “Yes, we spoke about their programme for the year and the All-England and Swiss Open are part of it. I will get back to their coaches, Yap Kim Hock (chief coach) and Rexy Mainaky (doubles coach), for their advice,” said Kenny.

    By including the two pairs, Malaysia are expected to have five elite men's pairs for the two tournaments.

    The top three ranked national pairs – Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong, Choong Tan Fook-Lee Wan Wah and Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari-Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif – will be out to win valuable Olympic ranking points in those tournaments.

    Kien Keat-Boon Heong are the defending champions in both the All-England and Swiss Open and they need to do well to regain their world number one spot after falling to number three in the latest ranking list released last week.

    Previously, the men's pairs had to participate in trials to compete in Open tournament and the top three were selected.
    Kenny added that they also had a discussion on the welfare of the players. However, he said that a decision on personal sponsorship for players had not been finalised.
    “We met them to give them assurances that their services are still needed. We talked about their programme and how we want to go about carrying them out,” he said.

    Soon Hock-Bin Shen and Teik Chai-Woon Fui, who are now ranked at number 21 and 31 respectively, are happy that they would get to compete in internationals again.
    “Hopefully, we will be able to give good showings in these tournaments. We are happy that the BAM are putting in efforts to meet our needs,” said Teik Chai, who reached the All-England semi-finals partnering Zakry in 2006.

    Intv with Zakry

    Latihan mantap(Solid Training)

    Oleh Sufian Thauri Muhammed
    sufianthauri@hmetro.com.my


    KEHADIRAN semula dua beregu, Tan Bin Shen-Ong Soon Hock dan Gan Teik Chai-Lin Woon Fui ke pangkuan pasukan badminton negara membolehkan persiapan lebih rapi diatur untuk menghadapi semua kejohanan yang bakal berlangsung.

    The return of 2 pairs, TBS/OSH, GTC/LWF to the national squad enables a more complete preparation for upcoming tournaments.

    Pemain beregu, Mohd Zakry Latif, berkata kepelbagaian corak permainan dua beregu itu akan membantu pasangan lain dalam persediaan menghadapi lawan.

    “Kami mempunyai enam beregu dalam pasukan sekarang dan semua mempunyai corak permainan berbeza.

    Zakry Latif said the different styles of playing of the 2 pairs will help the other pairs to be ready to face opponents.
    "We have 6 pairs in the team & all have different playing styles."

    “Bin Shen-Soon Hock banyak bermain bulu tangkis rendah dan pantas apabila memintas manakala Teik Chai-Woon Fui mempunyai corak permainan bertahan yang baik.

    “Apabila mereka kembali ke dalam pasukan, saya gembira kerana ia satu keputusan yang baik bukan saja untuk mereka, tapi juga kepada rakan sepasukan.
    "TBC/OSH are good in playing the shuttle low & fast in blocking while GTC/LWF have good defence."
    "When they came back, I'm happy cos it's a good decision not only for them but for team mates."


    “Kehadiran mereka sebagai rakan sepelatih akan membuatkan kami berada dalam keadaan lebih bersedia untuk menghadapi lawan dari negara lain yang pastinya mempunyai pelbagai corak permainan,” katanya.

    "Their presence as sparring partners will ensure we are in better state of readiness to face opponents of various playing styles."

    Dua beregu itu mengambil keputusan kembali menyertai kem pasukan negara selepas mengadakan pertemuan dengan Ketua Pengarah Majlis Sukan Negara, Datuk Zolkples Embong, minggu lalu.

    Seminggu sebelum itu, mereka melakukan kejutan apabila meletakkan jawatan daripada Persatuan Badminton Malaysia (BAM) ketika Terbuka Malaysia berlangsung.
    Summary of what happened last wk.

    Sementara itu, pemain badminton negara kini dalam persiapan untuk menghadapi pusingan kelayakan Piala Thomas/Uber di Ho Chi Minh, bulan depan.

    Antara pemain yang mendapat tempat dalam skuad Piala Thomas adalah adik Zakry, Mohd Arif Latif.

    Meanwhile, national is preparing for Thomas/Uber Cup qualifiers next month.
    Among the players that gained a place TC squad is Zakry's younger bro Mohd Arif.

    Pemilihannya mengejutkan kerana mengenepikan beberapa pemain senior yang memiliki ranking dunia lebih baik daripadanya termasuk Roslin Hashim dan Lee Tsuen Seng.

    “Saya sudah berpesan kepadanya supaya membuktikan pemilihannya bukan kesilapan. Dia perlu membuktikan keupayaan dan menimba pengalaman sepenuhnya daripada kejohanan itu,” kata Zakry.

    Arif yang juga pemain skuad Projek 2010-2012 muncul naib juara perseorangan lelaki Kejohanan Badminton Remaja Asia, tahun lalu

    The selection was a surprise as higher ranking senior players like Roslin & LTS were not chosen.

    Zakry-"I told him to prove that his selection was not a mistake. He needs to prove his capability & gather as much experience as possible from this."

    Arif, now Project 2010-2012 player, was runner -up Asia Junior Champ 2007.
