KUALA LUMPUR: The movement of the national coaches and players at Stadium Juara in Bukit Kiara is being closely monitored.

Since Feb 4, the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) have installed a thumbprint attendance system that requires coaches and players to clock in and out every day as they enter and leave the national training centre. National shuttlers Chong Wei Feng (left) and Ho Yen Mei using the thumb print access system before entering Stadium Juara for training.

The move is to monitor the attendance of the coaches and players as the management does not want them to go AWOL (Absent Without Official Leave) during training or to turn up late for their practice sessions.

With the thumbprint system in place, no one else can stand in for the absent party.

Last year, BAM installed closed-circuit television cameras (CCTV) inside the stadium and barred the public and media from attending the training sessions on Tuesdays and Thursday from 9am to noon.
