    2009 May 10: BWF President Election

    The next Badminton World Federation (BWF) president will be elected on 10-May-2009 at a congress in Guangzhou, China.

    Andrew Kam from KLRC has been nominated. NST Online Sport interviewed Andrew Kam.

    I agree with what he said "Professionalism is the key and we have to take cue from tennis and how ATP and WTA are so successful".

    Cheers... chris-ccc

    Unfortunately Punch was knocked out by Kang, no thanks to the heavy arm of Msian politics.

    Now another "more acceptable" Msian heavyweight ($$$) will contest Kang for the title.

    This will provide rather interesting tidbits for us in between baddy tourneys!

    Hopefully badminton will end up the winner!

    Kang Young-joong is not a millionaire.
    In fact, he is a trillionaire... in Korean terms!

    Dr Kang is one of South Korea's richest people.
    His net worth (USD 750 million) is KRW 1,175,250,000,000.
    That's 1.175 trillion Korean Won

    He owns the Daekyo group, the world's biggest name in after-school private education. A while back, he also acquired Fermat - the huge online education firm. Last year, he abandoned retirement to re-work Daekyo after it began losing business momentum.

    Daekyo means 'big lesson'.
    That's why it's ominous whenever Dr Kang decides that someone must be 'taught a lesson'

    But Korean trillionaires or billionaires have all tanked this year. Malaysian millionaires are not as badly affected as Koreans, thanks to its exchange control barrier.

    I hope he didn't put his money in Citicorp shares or in US Equities in general... I wonder how much money he had to inject into BWF these last few years. I have not seen any BWF financial statements for a while. They stopped posting those numbers... maybe too embarrassing [compared to FIFA etc.]...
