    Default Misbun: Chong Wei now cool under pressure

    The Star Online
    Thursday July 17, 2008


    By LIM TEIK HUAT

    KUALA LUMPUR: The change in attitude of shuttler Lee Chong Wei is already a good reason for coach Misbun Sidek having the confidence that his charge will not let him down in the Beijing Olympics next month.

    It has been more than a year since Chong Wei returned to train under Misbun and the Olympics will be the biggest test for the 26-year-old since his dismal failure in the World Championships in Bukit Jalil last year.

    An out-of-sorts Chong Wei disappointed the home fans when he fell to a crushing defeat by Indonesian Sony Dwi Kuncoro in the third round.

    But Misbun said that Chong Wei's self-confidence had improved a lot and he was now better at handling pressure. And Misbun saw no need to make big changes to Chong Wei's game ahead of the Olympics.

    “In the past, he would be afraid of certain players but he now talks with confidence on how he can beat them,” he said.

    “He is coping well with the expectations that come with being rated as Malaysia's medal hope in the Olympics. He is more relaxed about it compared to previously when he tends to get agitated easily and lose focus.

    “His commitment to training is also exemplary to the other singles players. I have not had any request from him coming to me with reasons to skip a training session.”

    Chong Wei will be competing in his second Olympics as the second seed behind China's Lin Dan.

    “Chong Wei is doing fine in his high intensity training mode before a competition. His fitness, movement and agility are at a good level,” said Misbun.

    “In sparring, the intensity has increased with the juniors giving good commitment in the sessions and Chong Wei is taking it well. I will be tapering down the sessions when we go into centralised training camp with the rest of the Olympic team.”

    Currently, women's singles player Wong Mew Choo also trains under Misbun at the Michael Badminton Academy in Bandar Puteri Puchong.

    The Beijing-bound squad will begin training together at the Juara Stadium in Bukit Kiara from Monday.

    Was with them during the training sessions. LCW was training well. His sparring partners was giving him a hard time. During one of the session break, one of the jr can't recall him name, gave an inspirational speech to LCW and Mew Choo. Everyone is working hard for them.
    Same goes to Choon Han and the doubles Department. All the sparring partners gave no mercy to them during the sessions.

    Misbun is calm and look cool at the moment. He even asked me to give some pointers for him to coach LCW and feedback on how LCW did in the training sessions. HAhahah... i jokingly told him.. if i start giving pointers, you better give up your job. Of course i'm in the least position to give any pointers. Well there was some fun during the sessions too.

    I will be glad to impart some motivational bits to him so that he can use it on LCW. And no, I won't take over his job.

    ..ants, you might've misheard Misbun. He probably was asking you if you'd like to join in the fun and be one of the sparring partners...

    ..i thought the sparring players were playing together on 1 side of the court??..Misbun probably was looking at the sidelines, probably for a fresh body, and saw you all smiling & giggling and asked if you'd like to jump in??..

    There are few courts. Not all in one court. For sparring sessions i only participated in those 3 vs 1 drills. Its not easy. I do smile most of the time watching them spar. Misbun always make fun of me. But in all seriousness.. i don't like to disturb them when they spar or train. Its their job u know.. have to be professional mah.
    I only join in when they are having fun and towards the end of the training session of the day. Furthermore i'm not a pro also.

    Just wonder how LD and his teammates are faring? Whether they are as cool as LCW?

    And we haven't heard the latest from Korea including Li Mao's strategy against LYB.
