Going the Chong Wei's way
"As a player, I have always set targets. Those were small targets but I often achieved them and kept setting new ones. And with hunger, I managed to come this far," said Chong Wei.
"Our back-up players have the hunger but it is still not enough to be top class. They must set themselves targets and work hard to achieve them. If they are afraid of targets, it is not going to help them progress.
"If I had given up after my early defeats to Choong Hann or Hafiz (Hashim), I wouldn't have made it. There were so many back-up players more senior to me but I kept improving in every tournament and finally started beating them regularly.
"The current players must be brave and have goals. We are looking for these qualities as we try to assemble a strong Thomas Cup team and also get quality players for the future."

Badminton: All for Chong Wei
“Initially, the plan was to release Chun Seang to spar with Chong Wei whenever it was needed,” said Rashid.
“But the coaches met and felt that the best decision was to allow Chun Seang to train permanently under Misbun to support Chong Wei’s training programme.
“This is done in the best interest of the country. Sparring with a left-handed and aggressive player like Chun Seang will benefit Chong Wei.
“It will help Chong Wei in his preparations to deal with southpaws like Lin Dan (of China). It will also lessen the burden on Hendrawan, who has a big pool of players under his charge.”

Having an average shuttler to spar, hang around, carry the bags & racquets, provide massages to our MS WR1 wont make LCW better nor improve that average shuttler.
Its like having Ranjit Singh to train with Lionel Messi. It wont make Messi a better player nor elevate Ranjit to the BPL.
What LCW need is to play in the best badminton league out there. If China has the best league, send the guy there.

Rashid challenges shuttlers to take on China's players
"Wei Feng is fortunate as he will have the All England to further strengthen his case. If he can qualify for the main draw in Birmingham and make the last 16 or last eight, he will earn a Thomas Cup spot."

Pretty Khe Wei vows to stamp her mark in two years’ time
go and silence those who thought they is correct to look down on women squad

Just a pretty face
I must say Woon Khe Wei is pretty. Not pretty, pretty but just pretty.
However, when it comes to badminton, I will be honest here. She wont make it on the international stage. Infact, she will be a punching bag. A lamb for sacrifice. However, if you put her amongst the boleh shuttlers in Malaysia, she will be like the creme de la creme lah.
I hate to say it, she wont make it in 2 years, let alone in 10 years. You need skills, technique, talent and determination to make that international breakthrough.
She should concentrate on her studies instead. With a decent degree coupled her personality and appearance, she should have no problems landing a decent job.

Kim Hock confident world champ will emerge in a short span
PETALING JAYA: To produce another world junior champion in less than a year is a challenging task but coach Yap Kim Hock is really up to it.
The junior tournaments at the Asian and world levels have been brought forward to the first half of the year, giving the Bukit Jalil Sports School doubles coach less time to work with his charges.
But, Kim Hock is not surprised nor perturbed.
This year, the Asian Junior Championships will take place at Stadium Juara in Bukit Kiara from March 21-28 while the World Junior will be held in Guadalajara, Mexico, from April 18-25.
Top bets: All eyes will be on Ow Yao Han (left) and Yew Hong Kheng to produce the goods in junior tournaments
These tournaments are usually held in the second half of the year.
The Asian junior meet was rescheduled because it offers ranking points for the players to qualify for the Olympic Youth Games in Singapore in August.
Just three months ago, Ow Yao Han-Chooi Kah Ming emerged as the boys’ doubles champions at the world junior meet in Kedah.
Yao Han-Yew Hong Kheng were runners-up in the boys’ doubles at the Asian junior meet in July and they were also members of the team that bagged the mixed team title.
Kim Hock said that although the focus would be on Yao Han-Hong Kheng, he hoped to see emerging talent come through the junior events.
“We are not surprised by the decision (to bring forward the junior events),” said Kim Hock
“We have a long-term plan and I have confidence in the group of juniors that we have.”
“The players have already been training and are being groomed to peak at these tournaments.
“The focus is on Yao Han-Hong Kheng but, I think, we have depth in the junior doubles and I will not be surprised if a new pair does well too.”
The other boys’ doubles pairs in centralised training are Nelson Heg-Teo Eei Ei, Sant Enos-Kelvin Ong, Tan Wee Tat-Goh Sze Onn and Marcel Simon-Lim Chun Ming.
“Our goal is to produce an Asian or a world junior champion again,” said Kim Hock.
“This group of players will also be sent for satellite and junior international tournaments so as to build their confidence and character.
“It is a challenge to keep producing young talents for the elite team but, so far, I am enjoying it.”

Rosman taking challenge in his stride
"This is a big challenge for me but I am optimistic the three pairs will gain from training with the Kien Keat-Boon Heong. Their skills and commitment is not far off but they need to have a change in mindset in order to move to the next level," said Rosman.

Let's see if the Kejurnas and the first Sirnas winners pair of Dandi Prabudita/Jones Ralfy Jansen can challenge Ow Yao Han/Yew Hong Kheng in the AJC and WJC this year The back-to-back titles won by the promising pair have strengthened their claim to be INA's best junior pair this year.
As for the second INA pair for AJC and WJC, maybe it's Riky Widianto (just turned 18 and already serial Sirnas winners at the Open Category) and Ricky Karanda Suwardi (just turned 18 too). Selvanus (just turned 17) is another talented player. Theyshould be good enough to challenge the best junior BD pairs
