Plan to help Ng get even stronger

PETALING JAYA: More focus will be given to helping Ng Tze Yong build up his strength so that he can last the pace in a match.

National coaching director Wong Choong Hann admitted that Tze Yong was feeble when he joined the senior team. They had to work closely with the National Sports Institute (NSI) experts to improve his physical condition.

“Since joining the senior team, we have improved his weight from 58kg to 68kg and are constantly working with him,” said Choong Hann.

“He played well in his first Thomas Cup Finals but it’s obvious that we need to build more on his strength.”
