PETALING JAYA: Former national bowler Wendy Chai will be back to the lanes again, but this time as a coach.
The 35-year-old, who left the national team in 2012, is slated to take the position of national youth coach alongside Steven Teng.
The Malaysian Tenpin Bowling Congress (MTBC) are now waiting for the National Sports Council (NSC) to finalise the details of the appointment.
“There shouldn’t be any problems for the NSC to appoint Wendy as one of our coaches because she has the credentials. She has a wealth of knowledge in the sport after 15 years serving as a national bowler,” said MTBC secretary general Cheah Ban Cheng.
The national squad have seen the number of coaches reduced last year.
Last January, former international Azidi Ameran quit as national youth coach. Then in September, another youth coach Foong Tak Meng resigned.
The MTBC now have three coaches – Holloway Cheah, Ben Heng and Steven – handling about 40 bowlers.
“Holloway is handling the elite bowlers while Ben is taking care of the back-up squad.
“Besides Wendy, we are applying to the NSC to have another two coaches to strengthen the national squad. However, we haven’t decided on who to fill up the positions,” said Ban Cheng.
