Oh.. no wonder Korea and Japan also have good players. Well Ken Tago nearly suprise LCW back then. The Korea pair is awesome.
I think Dato Lee Chong Wei will retire after this Olympic. Then, I cant see any Malaysian will be go even top 5 for men's single.
Even now our double is currently sit at 8th.

can u imagine another extra political hand from mas sports ministry in bam where we already have couple of them???

Regarding the politic involvment, its hard to tell or to be speak here.
I'm afraid that the BAM will act as our FAM as NOBODY can say a thing about them as what happened recently to Tan Sri Anuar Musa.
The problem is, they must know and must hear our opinion to ensure the Badminton in Malaysia will gain their respectable success. Previously, Malaysia, Indonesia, and China were the dominant country for Badminton.. but now I don't think Malaysian is one of them anymore. Like I said, for how long should we depends on LCW for Single and Tan-Koo pair for double?
Previosly, I was the person who organize a badminton tournament for my university not recall, maybe on 2002. There is this guy that study in Business that attract me. He won all the game with just give a point to his opponent, just a single point!. I dont recall his name. But I asked him why not play for Malaysia.. he said.. nobody come asking and he also don't know how to apply. See... how we lost a good player?
Malaysia should have a platform in which if a person want to apply to play for Malaysia. Then from there maybe they can filter the player/s.
Just my 2 cents.

Then he should have thought of exposing himself to higher level of tournament,
like the bam state open (KL proton open, Kedah proton open etc..).
But he didn't and he gave you an answer don't know how and nobody came and ask him.
These 2 answers can tell you he ain't the guy, pal.

KKK/TBH have been beated many times by players inside the BAM fold. I honestly don't know why you are finding unknown and random people to beat them. If these pro players are not in BAM without their professional training and have never participated in professional tourneys overseas whether independent or not, chances are that KKK/TBH will beat them single digits, straight games with mercy points.
What you're implying is that we have random people who can beat the world number 1 and 8 just out of nowhere if we host a badminton league.
And I feel sad to see that almost all Malaysians until now still do not seem to know who is Chan Peng Soon/Goh Liu Ying.

I once played for an 18-month period for my college team. I barely made it into the team, but it was led by a thin, small guy who was 3 years older than me. He looked like a hippie, chain-smoked and did pot. He had thin arms and a tummy. He had soft, sad eyes and long hair. But he smiled a lot, and was very easygoing. He didn't train, but it was known that he had trained pretty seriously as a kid, back in Hong Kong, I believe, in the late 60s and very early 70s. He must have been one of the most talented players I have ever seen, and that includes everything I have watched on Youtube. To watch this guy was just unreal. He floated on court. His backhand was as magical as Taufik, and it does not come easy for me to say this. His courtcraft, shape, technique was in a word, supreme. He had Carbonex racquets and Yonex bags, and Yonex shoes at a time when guys like me could only dream of them. And yet, in another year's time, he disappeared.
If this sounds hard to believe, believe it, because it is true. He never won anything more than runner-up at most university tournaments, but when he was in the mood, he could thrash all the winners and even state-level players with one hand tied, make them look like ridiculous, bumbling idiots on court. And then he'd get bored, and let it drift away from him.
No one thought fit to persuade him to make it to the next level. Many good, respected coaches knew of him, watched him play, but scorned him when they saw him smoking, and they all walked away. We all knew the coaches wanted their own importance, and they knew there was nothing they could teach him, or take credit for as far as he was concerned.
Where did the problem lie? He was in love with the game, in an almost romantic way. But no one wanted to take the effort to convert this love into a passion, to channel his energies into a professional approach. We lost a potential champion then.
When I watch Taufik now, I am often reminded of that other guy. Only, the other guy had the genetic code to be a naturally better, more artistic, graceful, gifted and lethal player than even Taufik. I believe this, because I was there. But then, he had some other stuff in his genetic code that would never allow him to fulfill the potential.
In the end, it is just another sad, "if only" story. I am sure there are many such stories in towns all over Malaysia. And other countries, too. But it also points to how many things have to come together in time and space for a guy to actually fulfill his potential in a walk of life he loves.

Very sad, but true
That's a great story of one's talent/potential. But if he/she doesn't want to make use of it, what can we say?
As a coach, I have found this type of stories so very often - Talented trainees who were encouraged to perform better, lost interest (just because of the extra work, which is required to arrive at the next level).
Very sad, but true.

When was Malaysia a dominating country at Badminton?
I think I can answer this question.
It was from the start of Badminton Team Men's Championships up to 1955, when Malaysia was the most dominating country.
However, in 1967 and 1992, Malaysia came back strong again for a short spell. Check the info recorded at this link;
