    Hafiz all fired up to improve after joining KLRC
    KUALA LUMPUR: A new club, a new sponsor and a renewed determination.
    Having officially joined the KL Rackets Club (KLRC) yesterday, and inking a lucrative two-year sponsorship deal with Li Ning, shuttler Mohd Hafiz Hashim is all fired up to raise his game above mediocrity and translate it into his first-ever Olympic Games ticket.

    The latest developments have only made the 29-year-old Hafiz more determined than ever to make the trip to the London Olympic Games – even though qualification had become more stringent.
    A country can have a maximum of two players if both are ranked within the top eight and limited to only one if he or she is ranked in the top 16.
    Hafiz is currently ranked 26th in the world while compatriot Lee Chong Wei is the world No. 1.
    “I have joined KLRC to revive my badminton career. I am grateful that KLRC and Li Ning are giving me a second chance in my efforts to qualify for my first-ever Olympic Games,” said Hafiz.
    “It will be tough but I am all fired up to improve myself.”


    Hafiz has experienced a rollercoaster ride in his badminton career since joining professional outfit Nusa Mahsuri in 1999. He joined the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) in 2008 before leaving on Feb 11.
    He has also won some significant titles in the last 12 years, including the 2002 Manchester Commonwealth Games gold medal, the 2003 All-England and 2006 Swiss Open crowns. He even played quite an influential roles in the team events, especially the Thomas Cup Finals.

    Asked why he did not rejoin Nusa, Hafiz said: “I wanted to try something new. I did not enjoy good results over the last few years but I am hoping that my fortunes could change under this new venture.”
    Hafiz will initially train without a coach although he has made a deal to train under former internationals K. Yogendran and Yeoh Kay Bin, who owns the New Vision Academy in Section 14, Petaling Jaya, twice a day.

    “I will be competing in 14 tournaments, including the Super Series and GP Gold events, without a coach. There are incentives from my club and sponsor if I do well. But eventually, my success will depend on me. And I intend to stay motivated.”
    Hafiz’s immediate goal is to qualify for this year’s World Championships, which will held in London in August.
    A country can have a maximum of three players if all of them are in the top 24 bracket and Hafiz will be seeking to improve his ranking in the Swiss Open next week.

    “I won the Swiss Open once (in 2006) and, hopefully, I will be able to raise my game even higher as an independent player,” said Hafiz during a press conference at Rebung Restaurant in Bangsar yesterday.
    Hafiz, who will leave for Basel this morning, is seeded ninth in the GP Gold event. The other prominent players in the fray in the Swiss Open are top seed Lee Hyun-il of South Korea, Denmark’s Joachim Persson and Indonesia’s Simon Santoso.

    Hafiz gets Olympic boost



    2011/03/12

    HAFIZ Hashim has never played in an Olympics and that is something he wants to achieve as a professional player when the world's biggest show is staged in London next year.
    Hafiz's dream received a boost when he secured a one-year sponsorship deal with KLRC Berhad and a two-year deal with China's largest badminton equipment manufacturer, Li Ning yesterday.

    Hafiz, who will receive a monthly salary from KLRC and performance-based incentives, will compete in 14 tournaments this year to improve his current world ranking of No 26. He must break into the top eight by the end of April next year to qualify for the Olympics.

    KLRC will fully fund his overseas trips while Li Ning will not only become his official equipment sponsor but will also pay for his expenses in tournaments which is sponsored by the the China-based company.

    "I have been in touch with KLRC since I decided to leave the BA of Malaysia (BAM) after the Malaysia Open (in January) and they have given me a good deal. My objective is to make the most of it and qualify for the Olympics. This is probably my last chance," said the 29-year-old.

    "In fact, KLRC has been interested in offering me a contract over the last three years and the time is right for me to chart my future on my own.



    Hafiz will train at the New Vision Badminton Academy where he will be assisted in training by former national players Yeoh Kay Bin and K. Yogendran.

    KLRC chairman Datuk Seri Andrew Kam welcomed Hafiz's arrival to his club and is optimistic the player will achieve his goals in the near future.

    "We are happy that Hafiz has opted to join KLRC and will help him achieve his dream of playing in the 2012 London Olympics. Hafiz still has the desire to play top level badminton and KLRC wants to give him a platform so as to enable him to reach his desired goals," said Kam.

    Hafiz's new career as a professional begins with the Swiss Open starting in Basel on Tuesday.

    KLRC should spend the money to train n develop the young players instead of Habiz Hashim... $$$ sure down the drain...

    Not sure about Li Ning's move to sponsor him...
