KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 26 (Bernama) -- After having contributed to badminton sports in the country for more than a decade, veteran shuttler Wong Choong Hann and the doubles pair of Chong Tan Fook/Lee Wan Wah have finally decided to leave the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) at the end of the month.
