Deputy President of the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) president Datuk Seri Mohamad Norza Zakaria said, after rival Rio Olympics, their action is less consistent and often challenged young players, especially from China.
“I know they are not very consistent action but we need fair because before the Olympics they have not won any Super Series championship but then managed to become champion in the Denmark Open and became world No.1 pair.
“What I expect is that senior players like they can set a good example to the younger players and I hope they can open a new chapter better next year,” he said.
Performance of the country’s main partner is seen not stable, especially in the last two championships with the elimination in the first round of the China Open Super Series quarterfinals before being stranded in Hong Kong Open Super Series.
Meanwhile, Mohamad Norza expressed his happiness on the increase shown mixed doubles, Tan Kian Meng-Lai Pei Jing and men’s doubles, Teo Ee Yi-Ong Yew Sin.
He said the increase implies that the development program implemented BAM runs well and started to give positive results.
“Not only the mixed doubles, men’s doubles second (Ee Yi-Chin) was also excellent and I was pleased with the progress shown them.
“They can beat a couple who are ranked higher and I hope that senior players will be more consistent, according to their position after the Olympics,” he said.
