 KUALA LUMPUR: Sharing ideas with a rival coach is not a norm – especially ahead of the World Championships.South Korea's coach --- Li Mao

But national coach Misbun Sidek had no qualms accompanying world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei to South Korea for a 10-day training and spending time together with Li Mao (pic) to evaluate the player’s strengths and weaknesses.

 

Misbun also laid to rest speculations about Chong Wei’s training in South Korea by stating that the stint was meant to provide the shuttler with the best preparation for the world meet, which will be held in Hyderabad, India, from Aug 10-16.

 

In fact, it was Misbun who did not want Chong Wei to be distracted as he prepared for the world meet.

 

“I cannot stop people from having an opinion or perception about this training stint in South Korea. But Chong Wei’s interest was a priority,” said Misbun.

 KUALA LUMPUR: A 10-day distraction-free training stint in South Korea has put world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei in the right frame of mind for the World Championships, which will be held in Hyderabad, India, from Aug 10-16.

 
He also managed to get two things done while in Seoul – get tips from his former coach Li Mao and consult his former physician Zhou Wen Wu about his back injury.
 
Chong Wei said that he also sparred with South Korea’s top singles shuttler Park Sung-hwan and compatriot Chan Kwong Beng.
 
“I am happy that my coach (Misbun Sidek) took me to South Korea. It is not that I do not enjoy training here but I just wanted some time to relax my mind,” said Chong Wei.
 
“You will not believe this but my handphone was silent most of the time. There were no major activities and I did not have to entertain many requests for meals and drinks. It was simply all about badminton.”

Yik Kay Chon, the chief financial officer of Li Ning, revealed that the company plans to open 70 to 100 outlets in South Asian countries, including Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia. Chon said the prevalence of sports activities in this area will bring huge development opportunities to Li Ning.

To support its expansion outside the Chinese market, Li Ning set up an office in Singapore in 2009 and this office is said to be Li Ning's first overseas branch.

Though affected by the global financial crisis, Li Ning maintained net profit growth of 52% year-on-year in 2008. Apart from the Asian market, Li Ning will also expand to Europe and the United States.

Prior to this, Li Ning announced plans to acquire the Fujian-based badminton equipment maker Kason for HKD187 million.
