KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 16 (Bernama) -- Youth and Sports Minister, Khairy Jamaluddin wants the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) to quickly carry out a transformation and find a formula so as not to depend on world champion Datuk Lee Chong Wei.
Voicing his worry on the weak peformance of national shuttlers, Khairy said he wants to meet the top leadership of BAM after the ongoing Malaysian Open Super Series badminton championship at the Putra stadium in Bukit Jalil here.
"I have given BAM time to make changes but it appears to be not effective. So I hope to meet BAM's leadership to discuss the problems besetting national badminton.
"I want an explanation from BAM's management itself, I understand there are too much responsibilities borne by the BAM president and there is no clear delegation of duties. I am also not clear how many committees there are in BAM.
"We found their position today is the same as last year, that is depending on one person only...Exposure of other players in competitive tournaments is also insufficient," he told reporters when met at the Putra Stadium today.....
