 KUALA LUMPUR: A 10-day distraction-free training stint in South Korea has put world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei in the right frame of mind for the World Championships, which will be held in Hyderabad, India, from Aug 10-16.

 
He also managed to get two things done while in Seoul – get tips from his former coach Li Mao and consult his former physician Zhou Wen Wu about his back injury.
 
Chong Wei said that he also sparred with South Korea’s top singles shuttler Park Sung-hwan and compatriot Chan Kwong Beng.
 
“I am happy that my coach (Misbun Sidek) took me to South Korea. It is not that I do not enjoy training here but I just wanted some time to relax my mind,” said Chong Wei.
 
“You will not believe this but my handphone was silent most of the time. There were no major activities and I did not have to entertain many requests for meals and drinks. It was simply all about badminton.”

Chinese sportswear giant Li Ning has started its comprehensive distribution network in South Asia with the opening of a flagship store in Ion Orchard, Singapore, and it plans to open up to 100 badminton supplies stores in this area before the end of 2009.

Yik Kay Chon, the chief financial officer of Li Ning, revealed that the company plans to open 70 to 100 outlets in South Asian countries, including Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia. Chon said the prevalence of sports activities in this area will bring huge development opportunities to Li Ning.

To support its expansion outside the Chinese market, Li Ning set up an office in Singapore in 2009 and this office is said to be Li Ning's first overseas branch.

Though affected by the global financial crisis, Li Ning maintained net profit growth of 52% year-on-year in 2008. Apart from the Asian market, Li Ning will also expand to Europe and the United States.

Prior to this, Li Ning announced plans to acquire the Fujian-based badminton equipment maker Kason for HKD187 million.

The Kiwi men didn't have a great start at the New Zealand Badminton Open yesterday with the depth of the tournament meaning a number of local players fell in early first-round matches.

Showing plenty of potential but a lack of patience, Bjorn Seguin (Waikato) lost to India's Aditya Elango in three games after winning the first set 21-19 at the North Shore Events Centre.

Praveen Tayalan from Counties Manukau may have made the final of the Australian under-19 tournament at the weekend, but had a straightforward loss to the more experienced Simon Maunoury of France while Australia's James Paybody defeated Kiwi Reon McFarlane and comrade Leck S Tham also went down in the first round.
