KUALA LUMPUR, March 25 (Bernama) -- Back-up shuttler Goh Soon Huat is eligible for a place in the Thomas Cup 2014 squad after he emerged atop at a three-day trial for the tournament.
Goh got the nod from Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) after beating former international Tan Chun Seang 21-14, 21-13 to finish ahead of his opponents at the trial at the Juara Stadium in Bukit Kiara last Friday.
BAM, in a statement Tuesday, said non-BAM players had also been invited to attend the trial where the selection process was conducted on a round robin format.
It said the trial was part of the BAM programme in scouting for talents for major tournaments in 2014, including the Commonwealth Games and the Asian Games.
"The BAM Competition Functional Group will invite Zulfadli Zulkiffli and Misbun Ramdan for a centralised training," it said, adding that BAM would continue to have an open selection system in the quest to have the best talents to relive the country's badminton glory.....
