Having been eliminated in the Thomas/Uber 2010 campaign, Malaysia's last chance for glory hinges on wresting the BadmintonCentral Kwun-Drifit Cup (in honour of the tournament's major sponsors). This event pits the (supposedly) best Malaysian BC members againt the well-travelled but heat-challenged BC World Team in a winner take all satay sticks, best of 9 doubles format. The venue will be at the National Reflexworld Arena, somewhere deep in the industrial heart of Puchong Town where people can get lost. Some of the BC World Team's top exponents have been undergoing "de-centralized training" in and around the Malaysian Peninsula. This include island hopping to Redang Island, testing for compatibility with spicy local mamak food in Penang, physical workout at the National Reflexworld Arena and last but not least, purchase of battlegear (racquets, shoes, shirts). Already, the psychological warfare has started ...... But Malaysia has been given a blow at the last minute when their top star, george@chongwei had to withdraw due to nasal injury that required surgery. More news and pics of the tournament progress will follow.
