BATC 2024 & The Fallout...

BATC 2024 & The Fallout...

The spotlight has fallen on Malaysia's shuttlers following their failure to clinch the Badminton Asia Team Championship (BATC) titles earlier this month. With criticisms of the players' performances mounting up from the likes of Rexy Maniaky, coaching director of the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM), and Malaysian badminton great Lee Chong Wei, who claimed "drastic changes have to be made" so the sport doesn't get "left far behind", the aftermath of the competition has left concerns over the Malaysian team, especially with the Paris Olympics drawing nearer.

Sports journalist Fabian Mark Peter gives us a lay of the land on and off the court, whether or not it really is time to "give up on Malaysian badminton", and gives us a look ahead at the upcoming Thomas Cup and Paris Olympics.
