A smashing way to develop talent


By C.Y LEE

Astro Kem Badminton kicked off for 2019 in Pulau Pinang last weekend with an overwhelming response. Over 400 children turned up for a chance to be selected for the KL Intensive Training Programme and be trained by our nation's top coaches Wong Choong Hann and Lee Wan Wah. This is first of 6 selections organised by Astro Kasih, Astro's CSR arm, in an effort to continously provide future shuttlers for the nation. For more information on upcoming locations, please go to www.astrokasih.org/ms/kem-badminton

FORMER general secretary of Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM), Datuk Ng Chin Chai now holds a key position as head of BAM development committee to shape the future of the sport loved by millions of Malaysians.

As is the case with development in sports, progress takes time and champions like Lee Chong Wei only emerge after talent is honed by years of discipline, but the system that breeds success stories like this must be given due support in order to produce results in the shifting landscape of competitive sports.
