Thread: Singapore Professional Players

Anyway let me try. I remembered that once back in the early 00's, Zhao Jian Hua as touted by many as one of the greatest badminton player ever (even better than LD) had coached the Singapore National team if I am not mistaken. But I couldn't remember any prominent name that came up under his charges. What actually happened?

You are in the wrong thread.
Since I presume you are a Malaysian, you must have read the numerous postings on "Malaysia Boleh", "Malaysia Boleh" or you are too new to this forum to have missed them entirely.
Malaysia has some of the best coaches in the world, from China to Indonesia and even Denmark, yet how many of your national players have made it big time apart from LCW? Even LCW has not captured the most prestigious crown - the Olympics.
Singapore is just a small country and we aspire to being able to compete in the international sporting arena, to be relevant and engaged. If a much bigger country like Malaysia finds it hard to be at the top, Singapore should be happy that once in a while our players are able to beat some of the higher ranked players in the world, including Malaysia.
Sure we will cheer for our players and our team whenever possible just as it is the inherent right of other countries to cheer for their teams. "Singapore Also Can" do what others are able to, and sometimes better is good for us and our sporting aspirants.

Malaysia is a small country just like Singapore (if size does matter in the first place), when compared to other power-house nations in badminton. There is no use to hire the best coaches if there is no system. Zhau Jian Hua once coached Singapore and what have you people achieved?? On top of that, we have the most corrupted B.A of them all which were run by fools and idiots!
The point is if we were to strike and belittled those who did not manage to capture the Olympic (lcw has a silver anyway) or many other accolades a few levels below, there are many other players besides him to begin with.

Please note again you are in the wrong thread and you are the one who tried to belittle SIN and condemn your own institution and officials.
MAS is many times the size and population of SIN and therefore cannot be a small country compared to SIN.
Of course we have achieved something, whether big or small and we will continue to strive for the best outcome within our limited resources.
Maybe you are ignorant of the fact that ZJH coached our national team part time as he was working full time in a commercial organisation.
And it will do you well not to try to belittle or humiliate SIN in the way you tried to for whatever reason best known to yourself especially in this thread which you are totally off topic.
This is not the right forum for you to vent your anger, jealousy or hate against SIN.

Talking about condemning of my own institution, it was actually another way to say that even with that kind of poor governance, we can still produce LCW. What do you have? Talking about jealousy, what is there for me to jealous about when it comes to Singapore badminton? Pardon me if I being too straightforward.
Looking at it, will it be more proper to say that you were actually the one trying to vent your anger out of jealousy and hatred towards Mas badminton as far as achievements are concerned?
Back to Singapore badminton, its good to know that you all are striving very hard to achieve the best. Be it big or small, majors, superseries or even world rankings it still required plenty of hardwork and talent if you not already know.
Unlike 'tikam' that only requires pure luck.
