Published on: Friday, August 10, 2018

Kuala Lumpur: The Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) is confident the national squad has a good chance of winning medals at the 2018 Asian Games in Indonesia starting from Aug 18 through its new line-up of players.

BAM president Datuk Seri Mohamad Norza Zakaria said its Coaching and Training Committee has decided to retain the top two men's doubles' pairs, Goh V Shem-Tan Wee Kiong and Teo Ee Yi-Ong Yew Sin based on their wide experience at international platforms.

"We cannot stress the young pair of Aaron Chia-Soh Wooi Yik as it may affect their performance in future.

"I feel our action is right in exposing them to several international tournaments compared to sending them to the Asian Games. Nonetheless, both top pairs have to prove themselves," he said.

Mohamad Norza told reporters after presenting prizes to winners of the Selangor level AirAsia-BAM National Junior League championship at Selangor Badminton Association Datuk Haji Sidek Hall here, Thursday. – Bernama
