    So now you're in charge of BAM and can make the decision without further consultation with your colleagues?

    Default ZBW not selected for SEA Games

    Straits Times

    Aug 8 2011

    An extract from the ST, Sport, today under the caption "Salakjit and points in Gu's sights by Lin Xinyi:


    "...Meanwhile, the Singapore Badminton Association (SBA) confirmed that Zhang Beiwen will play no part at the biennial (SEA) Games in Indonesia.

    The former national shuttler, dropped for disciplinary problems, was among 369 athletes that the Singapore National Olympic Council has approved for the Games thus far.

    But SBA chief executive Bobby Lee clarified that the shuttlers were nominated last year, and while Zhang qualifies for the Games, she will not be selected."


    This latest statement from SBA's CEO settles once and for all the status of ZBW. She is not in the national team.

    What about ZBW's availability to play at other BWF's tournaments, like the SS, GP, ......?

    I suppose SBA has the answer.

    IMO I think she is as good as being an independent player and participation in tourneys as indicated will largely be based on her world ranking as a professional. She will probably have to arrange things for hersellf. But in competitions that involve representing the country, such as the SEA Games, Commonwealth Games, Asian Games, Olympics, Uber & Sudirman Cups, she is unlikely to be selected by SBA.

    I watched her play against some of the US guys, and I'd be very afraid to play against her :s

    I have yet to see her play. Hopefully soon. She seems like a really good player.

    What a turn of events since this thread first appeared in Oct 2008!

    About three and a half years have passed and the current scenario of those players concerned remains:

    1. Li Li, our only Commonwealth Games WS gold medal winner, never returned to the Singapore national team. Her current status is unknown.

    2. Gu Juan has made up for lost time, worked really hard and is rewarded with an athlete's life-long dream to represent Singapore at the forthcoming London Olympics.

    3. But Zhang Beiwen continues to be lost in the wilderness despite her return to Singapore and given a second chance to remain on grounds of ill-discipline. She is now seeking her fortunes in the US and we could only wish her well.

    There have been a change of officials and former All-England MS champion, Luan Jin, is the experienced chief coach in charge. The talented ZBW would have made great strides in her game had she remained in the team.

    We hope that our remaining girls whom the SBA has so patiently cultivated, will do Singapore proud in the international arena in years to come.

    I saw her at the Singapore Open. She is pregnant.

    Fu Mingtian should have been selected since she managed to get a SEA Games gold medal. imho GJ is over-rated. She didnt even survive the first round of the Singapore Open. Will she be knocked out in the first round of the Olympics?

    There are a few photos of ZBW in the US open. Not sure why is she still representing Singapore?

    Currently, I believe that ZBW is still carrying her Singapore passport.

    1. It's good to know that Li Li is going to be a mother-to-be. I trust she still enjoys her life in Singapore.

    2. To be fair to Gu Juan, her overall performance in the past was slightly better than FMT's. Of course FMT became a SEA Games queen and rightly rewarded with the Sportswoman of the Year. I wish FMT had performed better to be at least WR16 before the Olympics cut-off date. Then we would have two representatives. Gu's R1 opponent, Porntip from THA, in this year's S'pore Open is a tough player whom Gu has found difficulty to play against in the past. But Gu has to improve beyond R1.

    3. ZBW is still a Singapore citizen and it was only right that she be indicated as coming from Singapore. She is not representing Singapore but did so on a personal basis.
