Chong Wei did not get the chance to meet former coach

Posted by SEJAHTERA BADMINTON on June 9, 2009


KUALA LUMPUR: World num­ber one men singles shuttler Lee Chong Wei was counting the days to meeting his former national coach, Indra Gunawan, for the last time.

But unfortunately, Chong Wei’s wish did not materialise. The 61-year-old Indonesian passed away yesterday morning at his home in Jakarta after battling with colon cancer for about two years.

Chong Wei learnt about it when he was about to leave for Singapore yesterday.

The 27-year-old is the defending champion in the Singapore Open, which starts on Wednesday. And he will be out to win the Indonesian Open for the second time in Jakarta next week.

“My plan was to visit him when I arrive in Jakarta for the Indonesian Open. But unfortunately, I will not get the chance to say good bye to him,” said Chong Wei.

“I knew he was in critical condition during the Pahang Open recently. In fact, I spoke to him a few days ago and told him to hang in there and wait until I turn up in Jakarta.”

Although Chong Wei is enjoying one of his best moments in his badminton career under coach Misbun Sidek, he said that he had not forgotten his humble beginnings in the national team under Indra.

The Indonesian came to Malaysia as the singles chief coach in 2001 and together with doubles chief coach Park Joo-bong, the duo nearly helped Malaysia to win the Thomas Cup Finals in 2002 in Guangzhou.

Malaysia went down 2-3 to Indonesia in the final but Indra will be remembered for his faith and gamble on exposing younger players, especially Lee Tsuen Seng.

Indra was also known for his compassion for senior players. He gave former internationals One Ewe Hock and Yong Hock Kin a second chance to salvage their positions in the national team.

Chong Wei was only 18-years-old when he joined the national team under Indra.

“I was just a junior trying to make a name for myself. I will always remember him for his words of encouragement. He always gave players the chance to prove themselves,” said Chong Wei.

“It was a different phase of life for me at that time. I needed a lot of support and motivation and he was there to guide me in those two years.”

Thanks to a good foundation laid by Indra, Chong Wei began his journey as the king of the local circuit in 2002.

“It had been a painful time for him (Indra) over the last couple of months. The cancer was spreading all over his body. I want to extend my condolences to his family members,” he said.

“I know what he would have wished for me if he was alive … to do well in the back-to-back tournaments. I will give my best.”

In the absence of Lin Dan of China, top seed Chong Wei is the favourite to win the Singapore Open.

But Lin Dan will be present for the Indonesian Open and as the third seed, he is drawn to meet Chong Wei in the semi-finals. Chong Wei won the Indonesian Open in 2007 but skipped the tournament last year.

PENGGEMBLENGAN DI AKMIL BATASI ATLET HIJRAH

Posted by SEJAHTERA BADMINTON on June 9, 2009


Jakarta, 8/6 (Roll News) – Ketua Umum Persatuan Bulutangkis Seluruh Indonesia (PB PBSI) Djoko Santoso mengatakan, salah satu motif penggemblengan para atlet muda bulutangkis di Akademi Militer (Akmil) adalah untuk makin menumbuhkan rasa kebangsaan yang tinggi hingga tidak mudah berpindah ke negara lain. “Saya bisa memahami, sebagian atlet-atlet bulutangkis terbaik kita hijrah sebagai pemain utama atau pelatih di negara lain. Sangat manusiawi, karena bayarannya juga lebih besar,” kata Djoko Santoso kepada ANTARA di Jakarta, Senin. Tetapi, lanjut dia, hijrahnya para pebulutangkis terbaik nasional itu juga tetap harus tetap dikaji lebih matang mengingat akan berpengaruh terhadap kelangsungan dunia bulutangkis nasional. Di Akmil, selain dilatih fisik para pebulutangkis muda itu digembleng dengan segala bentuk pendidikan bela negara, cita tanah air dan wawasan kebangsaan hingga diharapkan muncul semangat juang dari para atlet saat berlaga di pentas dunia. “Dan diharapkan dengan rasa cinta tanah air dan rasa kebangsaan yang tinggi, mereka tidak mudah teriming-imingi oleh bayaran yang tinggi membela tim negara lain,” ujar Djoko. Sejak 15 April silam sebanyak 39 orang pemain Pelatnas Pratama digembleng di Akmil selama tiga bulan. “Mereka adalah atlet-atlet muda bulutangkis berusia 19 tahun,” ungkapnya. Beberapa pebulutangkis nasional yang hijrah ke luar negeri adalah Mia Audina Tjiptawan (Belanda), serta Rexy Mainaki dan Hendrawan, keduanya ke Malaysia sebagai pelatih.
