THE Badminton World Federation (BWF) has denied there was a coup d’etat to topple its president Kang Young Joong or that the world body is being run by an individual.

BWF vice-president Robin Bryant said the decision-making process involves all 24 members of the council and there is no one person who can actually control the proceedings as mentioned by Young Joong.

THE best bets for Malaysia turned out to be the biggest flops in the World Championships, which ended at Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil yesterday. 

Expectations were high on Lee Chong Wei and Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong, who were seeded second in the men's singles and men's doubles events respectively. But they dished out dismal performances. 

And now, the chances to see Malaysia winning the first gold medal at the Olympics in Beijing next year do not look very promising. 

The world number three ranked Chong Wei, known for his prowess at home, chose the wrong time and place to show the bad side of his game. He was blown away 11-21, 9-21 by Sony Dwi Kuncoro of Indonesia in the third round.

NATIONAL chief coach Yap Kim Hock is ready to meet the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) president to find out what made national number one Lee Chong Wei take a swipe at him. 

“I am not letting this (Chong Wei’s revelation) affect me. I will take it all in my stride,” said Kim Hock yesterday.
