Malaysian Badminton Association President Noza believes that with the help of the professionals and perfect facilities of the Malaysian Badminton Academy, Malaysia National Badminton can return to the top ranks in the world within two years.
Noza told The Star that he has filled most of the areas that need to be strengthened. The next step depends on the performance of the players and coaches in order to fulfill the goals after the restart of the season.
"I strongly believe that Malaysia can become a world power again in two years. We have done our best to organize everything and strengthen our shortcomings."
At this stage, the Malaysian Badminton Association is composed of Huang Zonghan, the director of coaching leading 53 elite team players, and the development director of 75 youth team players, Misbon. The two have full autonomy, but still need to coach and train. Under the supervision of Committee Chairman Datuk Goh Chi Keung and Development Committee Chairman Datuk Wong Kam Choi, they perform daily work.
The Malaysian Badminton Association also has its own small sports science center, with 6 experts dedicated to assisting adult and youth team players, and athletes under the "Podium Program" also receive direct attention from the National Sports Academy, including fully equipped Gym, 26 administrative staff, an auditorium and a comfortable dormitory.
Noza revealed that one of the key changes is the relocation of the youth team from Bukit Jalil to Malaysia Badminton Academy and the hiring of American sports professional Robert Gambadra as the chief executive officer of the Badminton Academy.
诺扎透露，主要变化之一是青年队从武吉加里尔（Bukit Jalil）迁至马来西亚羽毛球学院，以及聘请美国体育专业人士罗伯特·甘巴德拉（Robert Gambadra）担任羽毛球学院首席执行官。
"The biggest difficulty is to put the youth team under the same roof, but even in the face of various challenges, we still did it. Young players can train full-time and receive the best education."
All national youth team players must take the General Certificate of International Secondary Education under the Cambridge University International Education Assessment. There are also make-up teachers from international schools to help them study according to the players’ schedule.
"Robert has not yet met us, but it will come in a short time. His experience as a sports executive will add more value. We give the players the best attention and are also working hard to find more sponsorships because it requires millions of dollars. To operate the entire center."
"But I am confident that after these investments, our players will shine. They have huge potential. All they have to do is to continue to train hard and achieve desired results."
