SHAH ALAM, Dec 30  -- Incumbent president Datuk Mohd Nadzmi Salleh will continue to head Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) until 2013 after being returned unopposed at the association's Annual General Meeting (AGM) here on Wednesday.

Mohd Nadzmi who took over from Datuk Dr Abdullah Fadzil Che Wan in 2000 said there was still much work to be done and success achieved although the sport of badminton had already achieved success in major competitions.

"In years to come, there are still many targets to be achieved," he told reporters after the AGM.

Badminton is among four sports identified and placed under the "Road To London 2012" programme, aimed at winning the country's first Olympic gold medal.

JOHOR BAHARU, Dec 5  -- Lee Chong Wei stormed into the final of the men's singles in the Super Series masters final for the second successive year.

A well carved out victory over Denmark's Peter Gade in their semi-final clash at the City Council Indoor stadium here Saturday night has put the world's No 1 shuttler and the defending champion in the fight against South Korea's Park Sung Hwan for the title and the US$40,000 winner's cheque Sunday.

The result was 21-17, 21-16 in Chong Wei's favour but the closeness of the score line actually did not reflect the proceedings on the court as it was the Malaysian who held the upper hand throughout and was never really in danger of letting the game slip away from his grasp.

Gade, the second seed in the tournament, knew it was going to be tough against Chong Wei in a repeat of last year's final in Kota Kinabalu, and despite his gallant effort, it was always going to be an uphill task for the 33-year-old Dane.
