Datuk Seri Norza Zakaria is wearing two hats – as the president of both the Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM) and the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM). Juggling two hot seats can sometimes leave one in fiery situations but this son of a school teacher is more than up for the challenge. Therefore, as the leader, he wants the OCM to be given more power to play a more prominent role and exercise good governance at all levels. He also wants to lead Malaysian badminton to its first Olympic gold at Tokyo 2020. Can Norza strike the right balance? StarSport’s RAJES PAUL queries the man who is ready to get his hands dirty to make a difference.

Q: You are called a man of many hats – how do you handle the criticism that comes with it?
