PETALING JAYA: Malaysia’s bid for an Olympic gold medal in London received a major boost with news that world No. 2 shuttler Lee Chong Wei is coping well since returning to full training.

Chong Wei suffered an untimely ankle injury during the Thomas Cup Finals in May but has made a speedy recovery and could very well be up for the challenge against China’s top guns – Lin Dan, Chen Long and Chen Jin.

“He has been making fantastic progress since the injury and all he’s trying to do now is to forget about the pain and focus on his game,” said BA of Malaysia (BAM) high performance director Datuk James Selvaraj in a telephone interview from Bath.

“He has been moving well and is slowly but surely regaining his confidence.

“Right now, the coaches are putting him through different strokes to simulate each and every possible opponent. They’re also trying to get his accuracy back on track and everything is coming along well.

“I’m also pleased with the efforts shown by all the other Olympic shuttlers. None of them are letting up in this crucial period.

“The sparring partners are also doing their part well. I’m happy with the commitment shown by everyone.”

The likes of Liew Daren, Chong Wei Feng, Chan Kwong Beng, Ong Jian Guo and the doubles pairs of Lim Khim Wah-Goh V Shem, Mak Hee Chun-Teo Kok Siang, Vivian Hoo-Woon Khe Wei are in Bath for sparring purposes.

The badminton team will leave Bath for London on July 24.
