NEW DELHI, July 19 (Bernama) -- Organisers of the Yonex-Sunrise World Badminton championship are meeting round-the-clock to ensure no security slip-ups which could jeopardise the safety of players during the week-long tournament in Hyderabad next month.

The Badminton World Federation (BWF) officials and Indian organisers held several rounds of meetings on Saturday and today (Sunday) to continuously review the security arrangements for the major tournament.

Amidst the twin bombings in the luxurious hotels in Jakarta last Friday where nine people were killed and nearly 50 injured, BWF and Indian authorities are not taking security matters lightly.

"Dronacharya means responsibility"

Former India badminton player Pullela Gopichand spoke exclusively to espnstar.com's Garima Verma on a range of issues.

Responsibility is a word big enough to deepen the lines on even the smartest of the foreheads. A word big enough to produce a hint of the same on even an often saintly-looking Pullela Gopichand, whose demeanour otherwise verges on indifference.

The former badminton player and now a celebrated coach, Gopichand, has been chosen for the prestigious Dronacharya award this year and his apprentice, Saina Nehwal, for the Arjuna.

HYDERABAD: The World Badminton Federation secretary-general Stuart Borrie, does not expect the organisers of the World Badminton Championship to face many hassles.

He was here to review the preparations for the mega event to be held between August 10 and 16.

“Everything is on track and it should be a highly successful event,” he said.

“Since the event itself has its own significance ahead of the 2010 Commonwealth Games, the sincerity on part of the organising committee to complement the efforts of the BWF to make it a grand success is pretty discernible.

“The success of India Open here early this year was proof of their organisational skills. And this World championship is only one, big step further to let India join the elite group of hosting an event of such magnitude,” he said.
