INA has more promising prospects.
Just read this and found out that Lee Chong Wei is struggling to find sponsors
What a shame! Is there no Malay based conglomerate that would like to promote their brand by sponsoring the BAM?
they never sponsoring, unless got own benefits...
That is from BAM. If you think the other way, you can read between the lines that BAM is experiencing difficulties finding sponsors and BAM want to fire some shuttlers becuase there is not enough money for the top dogs to corrupt in this situation.
And I think, generally, many good sponsors stay away from corrupt organizations such as BAM because they don't get any benefits and are sucked untill dry.
Can the MAS sport and youth national dept afford to pay Morten Frost's salary now?
why is it that the quality of women singles players has improved drastically these few years, whereas for Malaysia.. not much can be said? well , except for jin wei that is.
Maybank Berhad has officially end the sponsorship to BAM by next year and will not renew the sponsorship contract...
BAM soon to be hiring Indra Wijaya, MS coach, is a good move. Indra is currently coaching all the Koreans MS youngster and SWH.

Father cries foul after son fails to make BAM grade
BY TAN MING WAI
KUALA LUMPUR: The father of shuttler Muhd Iqram Maula Azman has alleged that his son had been treated unfairly during his three years with the Badminton Asso*ciation of Malaysia (BAM).
The 18-year-old Iqram, a former Bukit Jalil Sports School (BJSS) student, was dropped after a selection trial was held at the Juara Stadium in Bukit Kiara last month to pick players for the national back-up squad.
Of the 40 who attended the three-day trial, only 19 shuttlers were included in the national back-up squad.
Iqram’s father, Datuk Azman Abdullah, feels that Iqram, as well as the other BJSS players, should have been automatically promoted to the national back-up squad instead of having to undergo trials.
“My son should not be judged solely on his performance over the three days as he was not fully fit, having just recovered from a career-threatening injury (torn meniscus on his left knee), which he sustained earlier last year. For all the hard work and dedication put in throughout his three years with the BJSS, it’s unfair of BAM to drop him,” said Azman.
The BAM had also turned down an appeal for Iqram to be reinstated two weeks ago,
“Even during his time with the BJSS, he was hardly given a chance to impress. He was not sent for as many tournaments as his other team-mates.”
Iqram said that he has decided to quit and pursue his tertiary studies.
“Joining the national team training is the only way to go far in my badminton career. There’s no point doing that now, so I have decided to give it up,” lamented Iqram.
BAM technical director Morten Frost said the decision to drop Iqram was done above board.
“In the case of Iqram, BAM had followed all procedures,” said Frost.
“We went through an extensive process and Iqram did not make the cut. The decision was endorsed by the Development Committee, Coaching and Training Committee and the exco council two times. We would like to wish Iqram all the best.”
Lin Dan urges more exposure for Hee Yan
“I never knew who was Yee Han before this. However, I did watch his match against Kenichi Tago (Japan) in the qualifying rounds yesterday,” said Lin Dan as quoted from Berita Harian.
“I was impressed with his style and pattern when he played against Tago and also when he played against me. A lot of people might think I won the match easily but the main thing is that he lacks exposure.”
“He needs more exposure and more chances to play in championships.”
In fact, Yee Han did not take the top seed’s word for granted. “I learned a lot from this match. This was a valuable experience for me. He has such amazing skills.”
tell this to BAM...
Very gracious praise from Lin Dan!
I agree with Lin Dan. I saw his KT game live at the stadium. He was impressive. Watchout ZZ and those other players of the generation...This guy have promise and can kick butt
BAM, too much depending sorely on 1 person LCW.
after Lin Dan, Lee Chong Wei says thing to BAM...
Malaysia does not have any strong WS, WD, XD and MD. Once LCW retires there will be no MS as well.
Basically after LCW retires Malaysia is screwed.
Goh Jin Wei is a bright prospect.
