 “Well, the final decision will have to come from Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM). They will make the decision maybe tomorrow or next week,” he told reporters after attending an incentive presentation ceremony for athletes who produced excellent results at the 2013 Maybank Malaysia Open Badminton Championship and Mynamar SEA Games last year.

 


Chong Wei was awarded RM25,000 for winning the 2013 BWF Super Series Masters Finals, RM25,000 for the 2014 All-England Super Series Premier championship and RM30,000 for winning the 2014 Malaysia Open Super Series Premier.
