Amidst Attire Drama, Shuttlers Fizzle Out In Denmark

Once again, the badminton scene in Malaysia finds itself entangled in controversy, a situation that doesn’t come as a surprise anymore. The recent cause of turmoil put in the spotlight a rule imposed by the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM), requiring professional players to wear attire without conflicting sponsors while training at ABM. This decision prompted shuttler Lee Zii Jia and his coach Wong Tat Meng to use social media to accuse BAM of mistreating professional players. This move by Lee and Wong has led to reactions from prominent figures in the sport, including Datuk Lee Chong Wei and Datuk Seri Jalani Sidek. We dissect.

After that, we review the weekend’s BWF World Championships - where a contingent of 22 Malaysian athletes aimed for victory in Copenhagen, Denmark. However, the outcome was a solitary medal, earned by the top men's pair, Aaron Chia and Soh Wooi Yik. Unfortunately, they were unable to defend their title, bowing out in the semifinals and settling for a bronze medal.
