    Twist of event gets veteran shuttler Choong Hann Asiad berth

    KUALA LUMPUR: In a twist of event, veteran men singles shuttler Wong Choong Hann has been given the nod to compete in his third Asian Games after Mohd Roslin Hashim was ruled out due to an elbow injury.
    On Friday, national chief coach Yap Kim Hock announced that Roslin had withdrawn from the Asiad, which will be held in Doha from Dec 1-15.
    Signs of trouble surfaced when Roslin pulled out from last week's Dutch Open after picking up his old injury.
    And two days ago, Roslin confirmed his worst fears by informing that he could not play at the Asiad.
    Without Roslin, world number two Lee Chong Wei, Mohd Hafiz Hashim, Kuan Beng Hong, Choong Hann, Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari-Lin Woon Fui and Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong will represent Malaysia in the men’s team.
    Choong Hann or Beng Hong will be counted on as the third singles.
    By including Choong Hann, who is on the road to recovery following an injury (ruptured Achilles tendon) during the Thomas Cup Finals in May, it will be tougher for Malaysia to meet the National Sports Council (NSC)'s target of a silver medal in the men's team event.
    Kim Hock however, was confident that the late switch in the men's singles would not dampen the spirit of the team in their effort to win at least a gold medal at the Asiad. Malaysia have not won a gold medal since the badminton team powered by Punch Gunalan, Ng Boon Bee and Sylvia Ng bagged a total of three gold medals at the 1970 Asiad in Bangkok. :D

    unless against china. But i watched the match between him and Dicky in the Dutch Open, his receiving stance is a bit weird compared to before he sustained the injury. His right hand, seems to open up more compared to normally people put their other hand close to their body.

    You mean Deffensive? He used to be an attacking player, very physical. It was about 2004/5 he changed to a more rally-type player, without too many good results. But his physical game meant he couldn't keep on playing and play in the same way.

    Even if it's really to see choong hann participation in this asian games, i feel really sorry for roslin, He made an incredible come back this year, reaching the korea open final and this sentence makes me feel more and more sad for him : "And two days ago, Roslin confirmed his worst fears by informing that he could not play at the Asiad." .. =/
    Seems like he worked a lot this year and game good results to malaysia
    Well, it's also a good thing, choong hann is making also a come back ! wish he'll be in a great shape in Doha =)

    I prefer Roslin than Wong Choon Hann, so it isnt really a good news for me anyway... Wong Choon Hann definitely needs more than a month to suit himself with the badminton world

    that is good news indeed.
    KBH in 3rd singles is just not good enough, especially against CHN/DEN or event KOR.

    Good luck Malaysia

    Good to hear that Choon Hann is selected but it also shows how thin Malaysia squad is in depth chart. Malaysia may still do well in Team event as long as we don't meet China before Final.

    Really too bad for Roslin. For sure C Han will play his best in this tournament. Be prepared for some exciting matches of him playing.
