After a seven hour meeting, this is what BAM told journalists at the Press Conference, and I am merely repeating what was told to me by Journalists that were present:
- that they have yet to talk to Koo Kien Keat and Tan Boon Heong before deciding on splitting the pair.
- that they have decided priority is for the 2016 and 2020 Olympics and that the 12 year plan will be the baby of the Development Committee.
- that a decision on which coaches to be retained or sacked to be decided in December and as such status quo remains.
- that the High Performance Team is disbanded and that Dato James Selvaraj is a member of the Coaching and Training and no longer the High Performance Director.
Now there was much more discussed and decisions made that they did not want to share with the media.
I shall await what the main stream media writes before unveiling what actually transpired.
Suffice to say that one top official likened Malaysia badminton mentality as one of a third world country.
