Lee Chong Wei should take motivation from Boonsak Ponsana, says national coach Rashid Sidek
Malaysia’s Singles national coach Rashid Sidek said that Lee Chong Wei should take motivation from Thailand’s Boonsak Ponsana who suffered with an ankle injury last year and recuperated with his steely determination and emerged as the winner of last month’s Singapore Open Super Series 2012.
Ponsana had to quit playing competitive badminton for almost three months after getting an ankle injury in October 2012. He underwent a surgery and gradually got his fitness and rhythm back and proved that he is back on track by nailing Singapore Open title.
Rashid said that World Number Two Chong Wei has also been going through the similar situation as he suffered with an ankle injury two months ago and has almost recovered from it.
The coach is satisfied with the recovery process of Chong Wei as the shuttler is fit now and is working hard in training sessions at Bath, England.
However, Rashid wants Chong Wei to emulate Ponsana and put the bad memories behind to prove his worth at London Olympics.
