KUALA LUMPUR: Two immediate actions will be taken against the national elite back-up shuttlers following their wishy-washy performances in the Asian Badminton Championships (ABC), which ended in Suwon, South Korea, yesterday.

National chief coach Rashid Sidek will cut down on the number of international tournaments for the four second liners — Tan Chun Seang, Mohd Arif Abdul Latif, Chong Wei Feng and Liew Daren. He also wants to make it compulsory for them to attend a weekly motivation class.No-nonsense approach: National chief coach Rashid Sidek giving a stern word to elite back-up shuttler Daren Liew during the Malaysian Open in January.

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia’s challenge in the Asian Badminton Championships (ABC) is all over with the exit of their last two pairs in the quarter-finals at Suwon, South Korea, yesterday.

Hopes were high on the men’s doubles pair of Hoon Thien How-Lin Woon Fui but they went down 21-23, 19-21 to China’s juniors Chai Biao-Liu Xiaolong in a tight 50-minute match.

It was only Thien How-Woon Fui’s second international tournament together.

They also reached the quarter-finals in their debut at the Indian Open two weeks ago.

In the mixed doubles, Chan Peng Soon-Goh Liu Ying went down tamely 13-21, 6-21 to South Korea’s Yoon Yeon-seong-Kim Min-jung in just 26 minutes.
