It appears that taneepak is willing to make the concession that his DNA now covers the entire "East Asia" region but he is still jealously guarding it from admittance to the South-East-Asian countries!
I agree wiht you though, that broad-spectrum differences do exist in physiological/cultural make-up and consequently, the types of sports that different ethnic groups gravitate towards, and excel at. There are many variables that contribute to further refining the model, such as political systems, climate, geography, etc. I had made a similar point some time back on another thread:
In fact, much of the discussion on that thread resonates with what is under discussion right now on this thread.

Is BAM going to change for change's sake??
The latest badminton personality to add BAM to his distaste is none other than Tan Sri Elyas Omar, asking the president to step down and to dismantle the 4 member-High Performance Team. [31 May 2012 The Sun newspaper]
Cheah Soon Kit also took his swat and lambasted BAM.
Razif also took the same stand.
Of course Eddy Choong had grilled BAM gang long ago.
Misbun don't have to say anything. His action or rather his 'inaction', says everything.
But i guess what is on everyone's mind now is this - Will BAM ever see the light of day or does the nation need a total revamp inside out before we have the light at the end of the tunnel shining on our darken hopes.
At the moment, although it does make sense indeed for LCW to forget about the Olympics if he is not up to it rather than risk injury and humiliating defeat, at the end of the day, only LCW can make the decision himself. Only he himself know whether he is up to the task.
Furthermore, we all know it is so much pressure for him to carry Malaysia's hopes as well as his own to get the ever so elusive Olympic title. I think this decision will be very hard to make indeed.

salary for coach and BAM management is high, but achievement is zero. they should quit. look at chen long and kenichi tago, they both are same level during they in world youth championchip. but chen long are developing so fast when he in china national team even lcw is 50-50 to beat him in tournament.

When you are young and full of hopes and determination, that is what sees you through the hurdles. When you are nearing the peak and retirement age, personal and emotional support plays a big part.
Of course you might say, Hafiz is married. Why doesn't he perform? Sorry guys. I don't know.

Don't depend too much on elite players, says Zolkples
Daily Express, Thursday, May 31, 2012
..."I had always stated that we should not be depending on elite players and to me the only elite player in the country is only Datuk Lee Chong Wei.
I had many times urged BAM to give youngsters Zulfadli Zulkifli, Misbun Ramdan Misbun and Muhd Syawal Mohd Ismail the necessary exposure and even send them to the Thomas Cup but BAM are the experts," he said.
..."Whether we like it or not, we must expose our young players, not only in the Thomas Cup but other international tournaments as well because we need a larger pool of players," he said.

No drastic measures to be taken yet, says Nadzmi
Friday June 1, 2012
...There was even talk that the BAM are planning a major revamp after the debacle.
Nadzmi, however, has downplayed the speculation about such drastic measures being taken.
He would rather explain it as just a monthly meeting between the coaching and training committee and the BAM management – as well as a Thomas Cup post mortem.
...Nadzmi admitted there was talk about a revamp in the coaching system.
“But with just two months to the Olympics, it’s more important to see what we can do for now.
“In the long run, however, we will focus on grassroots development.
“We also need to unearth more talents like Chong Wei.
“We aim to develop more players into world beaters but to do that, we also need world class coaches.
“I’ve also issued a challenge to the current coaches to try and develop their players into world beaters.”

Nadzmi: Onus on coaches to deliver
01 June 2012
BAM held an emergency coaches' meeting yesterday which was attended by Nadzmi, secretary Ng Chin Chai, development chairman David Wee and Thomas Cup team manager Datuk Sayed Abu Bakar Abdullah and high performance committee members Datuk James Selvaraj and Kol (Rtd) Wong Ah Jit where Malaysia's failure in Wuhan and the preparations for the Olympics were discussed.
"We need quality coaches who can turn our players from quality internationals into world beaters. In order to do that, our coaches must also train themselves to become better," said Nadzmi.
"We have to keep monitoring our competitors and regularly upgrade and we cannot prepare in isolation. The Thomas Cup has given us a fair picture of how the other teams have progressed and we have to ask ourselves whether we are training (our players) accordingly.
