Please bring more clothes to London, Ah Jit tells shuttlers
KUALA LUMPUR: It may be summer time in England but the shuttlers have been asked to bring extra clothes to keep them warm when they leave for Bath today.
The six-member national badminton team, led by Lee Chong Wei, will leave for England tonight with a team of sparring players for an 11-day centralised training at the Bath University. This is part of their preparation for the London Olympic Games.
Besides Beijing Olympic Games silver medallist Chong Wei, the other Olympians are Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong, Chan Peng Soon-Goh Liu Ying and Tee Jing Yi.
Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) high performance director Wong Ah Jit said yesterday that everything is in place in Bath to welcome the players.
“Bath University is very professional in its approach as usual and everything is in order. However, the weather is colder than usual,” said Ah Jit in a telephone interview.
Ah Jit and a group of sports science experts from the National Sports Institute (NSI) and two chefs have been based in Bath since Sun*day.
“The temperature is around 15°C ... at times it even dips lower. It is cloudy most of the day and wet too. More rain is expected. The team have been informed of this,” he said.
“A few other countries are also here. China’s entire swimming team have been based here for the past one week. It is good that our shuttlers will have 11 days of quality training before moving to London (on July 23).
“It will be the final phase of training and will include many video sessions. Other arrangements will be made by team manager Ng Chin Chai.”

Nadzmi won’t rule out standing for BWF presidency
KUALA LUMPUR: Changes are imminent in the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) whatever the outcome at the London Olympics from July 28-Aug 5.
But one that will be least expected is BAM president Datuk Seri Nadzmi Mohd Salleh going for the top post in the Badminton World Federation (BWF). It is learnt that two continental representatives have approached Nadzmi to take up the challenge.
Nadzmi, who has helmed BAM since 2003, admitted that he had been approached to contest for the post.
“I didn’t want to stay on as BAM president at the last elections but the affiliates wanted me to continue so I stayed on. It’s likely that I won’t defend the position at the next election (next year),” said Nadzmi, who has two deputies – Tengku Kamil Tengku Ismail and Datuk Al-Amin Majid.
“I have been asked to stand for the BWF presidency. I haven’t decided as yet but it will be a different set-up and a new challenge.
“I had thought of taking a break but I’m one of those who can’t turn down a challenge.
“I will need to think about it,” added the 59-year-old Nadzmi, who runs several businesses – Nadicorp Holdings, Express Rail Link and Konsortium Transnasional Berhad.
The BWF election will only take place next year but heavy lobbying will go on, starting with the London Olympics, to win the hearts of members who will decide on the successor to current president Kang Young-joong of South Korea.
Nadzmi, who will be in London to support his players, is hoping for the best.
“It’s our wish that our players will end the country’s long wait for a first gold medal. Of course, Lee Chong Wei is our main hope but we don’t want to disregard the chances of the others as well.”
Now, this is what I call Man with Passion.

If Nadzmi decides to challenge for the BWF presidency and should he win, then it can only be a win for one party and a gain for the other.
Isn't it telling us something that all the BAM affiliates wanted Nadzi to stay in the last election (to which he complied) and now he gets an invitation to contest for the BWF presidency?
This is in sharp contrast to the the emotional outburst of corruption and mismanagement we read here about Nadzi.
But then this thread, a tiny dot with no official credibility, has been hijacked by frustrated posters who seem to want to tarnish BAM officials, without one shred of evidence.
Now, don't tell me the next thing you are going to do is to go viral using all the media sources you can use?

Again, please do not hide behind a pretext of expressing "opinion" for naked and baseless slander. At least have some guts to go public and be a man. So far I see wrongful use and abuse, of the word "opinion".

Have a Poll on Nadzmi
I think we should have a poll on "Should Nadzmi vacate his seat in BAM". Then everyone would have the benefit of getting a clearer picture of at least what BCers want/feel about this matter, without the need of 'accusing' or being 'accused of slandering'.
If anyone agrees on this suggestion, pls voice out.
