PUCHONG: With music blaring away, one could be forgiven for assuming that the Michael Badminton Academy (MBA) here had been turned into a discotheque yesterday morning.

A quick check, however, revealed that it was just a simulation gimmick set up by national singles coach Misbun Sidek as part of the preparation for his two singles charges – Lee Chong Wei and Wong Mew Choo – ahead of the Beijing Olympic Games.


Misbun said it was purposely done to distract the players.

“The slightest noise can be an irritation and distraction to a tired player, especially after they have been pushed to the limit. The loud music was intended to annoy and provoke the players. But I am happy that they stayed focused,” said Misbun.

In fact, Misbun heckled at Mew Choo towards the end of the training session. And when that did not work, he even danced to the loud music.

“I tried to make her laugh but she was quite focused. I hope she will be as tough as this during the Olympic Games. There will be so many distractions during the Games – externally and internally,” said Misbun.
