No breakup, says Frost

New Straits Times - - Sport -

BAD­MINTON As­so­ci­a­tion of Malaysia (BAM) tech­ni­cal di­rec­tor Morten Frost has dis­missed talks that men’s dou­bles pair Goh V Shem and Tan Wee Kiong would be split up fol­low­ing Malaysia’s dis­as­trous out­ing at the re­cent Sudirman Cup in Gold Coast, Aus­tralia.

He said the Coach­ing and Train­ing (C&T) com­mit­tee will hold a me et­ing, to be chaired by BAM pres­i­dent Datuk Seri Mo­hamad Norza Zakaria, this week.

”I can’t make fur­ther com­ments on the mat­ter but I will sub­mit my reports on our shut­tlers’ per­for­mance dur­ing the C&T meet­ing. Let’s see how it goes,” he said yes­ter­day.

Malaysia were elim­i­nated from the Sudirman Cup af­ter los­ing 1-3 to Ja­pan in the quar­ter-fi­nal with Goh-Tan suf­fer­ing back-to-back de­feats to the un­her­alded pair, Takeshi Ka­mura-Keigo Son­oda.

They met the Ja­panese pair twice — in the group stage and in the quar­ter-fi­nal of the world mixed-team com­pe­ti­tion.

Goh-Tan, the 2016 Rio Olympics sil­ver medal­list, reached only the quar­ter-fi­nal stage in three Su­per Se­ries tour­na­ments: the All Eng­land, In­dia Open and Sin­ga­pore Open. Ber­nama
