Bar None: S2E22 - The Scandal Rocking Badminton
Wong Choong Hann, Former World No.1 Shuttler | Kenny Goh, Badminton Asia Chief Operating Officer
Over the past couple of weeks, the world of badminton was rocked with allegations of match-fixing with two professional Malaysian shuttlers implicated. Both players face six charges of match-fixing during six different championships between 2013 and 2016. If found guilty, life bans are a very real possibility. But many questions continue to linger on the minds of observers – like how BWF knew about this and not the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM). Also, is there an attempt to discredit the independent players who do not train under the BAM? Joining us this week is Kenny Goh ex-BAM and current COO of Badminton Asia, and former world No 1 shuttler and Malaysian badminton legend, Wong Choong Hann.
