Wednesday, 22 Jun 2022 7:04 PM MYT KUALA LUMPUR, June 22 — The selection of professional players to fill the mixed doubles slot for the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, England, augurs well to meet the target of two gold medals set by the Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM). Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) doubles coach director Rexy Mainaky is optimistic that the target will be achievable based on the experience and performance of the current national professional pairings of Chan Peng Soon-Cheah Yee See and Tan Kian Meng-Lai Pei Jing. The idea of hosting the Olympics has divided public opinion in the Spanish regions, especially since Catalonia’s pro-independence government did not want to include Aragon in the bid due to a political dispute. He said the selection of professionals did not mean that BAM was bypassing players under the parent body, but rather it was the best selection on merit based on the present group of shuttlers. The individual title has so far proved elusive for Peng Soon whose best achievement was a bronze in the last edition in Gold Coast 2018 with Goh Liu Ying. “The new mixed doubles (BAM) pair was pretty good at the Indonesian Open but not yet champions (material), like what we can see of the national professional mixed doubles pair of Kian Meng-Pei Jing who once won the Korean Open when the Malaysians defeated the host pair. “We had other brilliant candidacies (for the 2016 and 2020 Summer Olympics) that didn’t go ahead because we were competing with very strong rival cities. “We also have Peng Soon-Yee See but for the Commonwealth Games we cannot list 10 players like in the Thomas Cup and Uber Cup . So far we are assessing coaches abroad but I also told Datuk Kenny Goh (BAM secretary-general) on local coach but the decision would depend on them,” he said when met by reporters at Academy Badminton Malaysia (ABM) today.

. “There was no other way out than withdrawing our bid. “I’m very happy and proud to play in my fourth Commonwealth Games.. hence, I see Yee See can also play in various events,” he said when met at the Akademi Badminton Malaysia (ABM) in Bukit Kiara here recently. “We were transforming an integrating project into a war between constitutionalists and independentists, the Olympic spirit is not about that. Peng Soon-Yee See and Kian Meng-Pei Jing are currently the country’s best mixed doubles pairing with each currently ranked eighth and ninth in the world ahead of the 2022 Commonwealth Games from July 28 to August 8. 11 Marcus Ellis-Lauren Smith in the Indonesian Open. Asked to give a hint if he would field a “scratch pair”, Rexy, who is also the 1996 Altanta Olympic Games men’s doubles gold medallist, merely replied that “it’s a secret”. In the past, referendums have killed off potential bids from several countries. “For me, they (Aaron Chia-Soh Wooi Yik) could beat the Chinese pair but I was shocked with Aaron’s form in the game as he could not match Wooi Yik’s rhythm.

Last April, Kian Meng-Pei Jing ended a five-year drought without a title when they won the South Korean Open title after beating the host pair of Ko Sung Hyun-Eom Hye Won. The national badminton camp aiming for Commonwealth gold in the men’s singles and mixed team events will be lined up with men’s singles Lee Zii Jia, men’s doubles Aaron Chia-Soh Wooi Yik, women’s singles Goh Jin Wei, women’s doubles Pearly Tan-M Thinaah and mixed doubles Peng Soon-Yee See and Tan Kian Meng-Lai Pei Jing. — Reuters Advertisement. 27) and Singapore’s Terry Hee-Tan Wei Han (No. For the record, in the 2018 edition, the national badminton squad took home one silver via mixed team and two bronze via men’s and mixed doubles. — Bernama Advertisement .
