KUALA LUMPUR: Have national men’s doubles shuttler Koo Kien Keat and Tan Boon Heong lost their motivation to play?
All indicators point that way if their string of misfortunes are anything to go by.
On Thursday, Kien Keat suffered another blow in his bid to revive his flagging career. He had to request for time off from the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) after the recurrence of an eye infection.
It now requires immediate laser treatment, which he hopes to get done on Monday.
This means, Kien Keat will miss a scheduled physical test, which is being planned by the National Sports Institute (NSI) next week.
