KUALA LUMPUR: The national back-up shuttlers led by Mohd Arif Abdul Latif are ready to take up the challenge thrown at them by newly-appointed men’s singles coach Hendrawan.

For now, Arif said that the Indonesian former world champion wanted from them full commitment and unwavering attention in training.

Besides Arif, the others under the charge of Hendrawan are Tan Chun Seang, Chong Wei Feng and Liew Daren.

“He wants us to give him in training the same commitment that we give during competition. He had a one-to-one talk with all of us,” said Arif.

Although the style of training differs from their coach of four years, Rashid Si­­­­dek, Arif said that both had the same focus.

“Like Rashid, Hendrawan also gives greater concentration in what is lacking in our game and the touch is more personalised. It is all about hard work and quality in training. We consider this as a new phase of life in our badminton careers,” he said.

The 30-year-old Zhou enjoyed the support of the hometown crowd while battling the Chinese, who on Friday night broke their hearts after beating 13-year-old Filipina wonder Malvinne Ann Venice Alcala.

KUALA LUMPUR: World Cham­pionships-bound men doubles shuttler Chan Chong Ming will always remember the good deeds of his former coach Moe Chin Kiat.

In fact, Chong Ming learnt from his former master to develop an interest for going the extra mile to tend to the needs of others.

And before going for the world meet in India, Chong Ming will take time off from his training to do what Chin Kiat taught him – helping out others.

This time around it is to raise awareness of the Malaysian paralympic team who will be competing in the Asean Para Games next month.

Chin Kiat, also fondly known as Ciku, is currently the badminton coach of the paralympic team.

Chong Ming and his Pioneer Sports Management (M) Sdn Bhd partners Chew Choon Eng, Lee Wan Wah and Wong Choong Hann will also be involved in a fund raising programme – via badminton competitions – for three charity organisations.

The programme is jointly organised by the CIMB Foundation and Bukit Damansara House Owners Association (BDHOA).
