KUALA LUMPUR: Veteran shuttler Mohd Roslin Hashim will be banking on his three-month experience in Denmark to make an impact in the Malaysian Open, which will be held from Jan 16-21 at the Kuala Lumpur Badminton Stadium (KLBA) in Cheras.

The 32-year-old Roslin is back home for the Malaysian Open after his playing-cum-coaching stint for the Vendsyssyl Badminton Club since September.

The Nusa Mahsuri shuttler, who was replaced by veteran Wong Choong Hann in the squad for last months Asian Games due to a recurring elbow injury, said he is back at his best.

And he wants to play a prominent role in all the Super Series events, starting with the US,000 Malaysian Open.

The Super Series offers good prize money. It motivates players like me to continue playing. The Malaysian Open will be challenging but I aim to get off to a good start for the year, said Roslin.

Roslin said that the stay in Denmark had improved his fitness level.

The training environment is different over there. I train once a day with my club players. Most of the time, Im either jogging or working out at the gymnasium, he said.

I have to travel about five hours to Copenhagen (by flight) to spar with national players like Peter (Gade-Christensen), Kenneth (Jonassen) and Joachim (Persson). I do this once every fortnight.

In the elite league, my club has reached the semi-finals. It is now our aim to make it to the final, at least. It is quite competitive.

On his coaching job, Roslin said: There are two groups. One is for those aged between 10 and 15 years while the others are aged below 10. It was a good experience. Most of all, I have learnt to be very independent over there.

Roslins stint with the club will end in March and he will then continue with his bid to qualify for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

I will return to Denmark after the Malaysian Open. I do not know whether I will still continue playing for the club. But Im certainly determined to make the cut for the next years Olympics, he said.

The qualifying period is from May.

Age will not stop me from achieving this dream (of qualifying for the Olympics). Currently, I am injury-free and fit. It will be great if I can win one or two titles this year. Hopefully, I spring a few surprises at the Malaysian Open.
