BAM: Unfit shuttlers will be banned from tournaments

Photo: The Star If you’re a Malaysian badminton player, beware of BAM’s new mission! The Badminton Association Malaysia (BAM) is on a mission to ban all unfit badminton players from competing in tournaments. The ‘unfit’ level will be determined by a series of tests conducted by BAM. But fear not, BAM understands that fitness does not happen overnight. All badminton players have time until next year to meliorate their fitness level. This new rule will only take effect in April next year. BAM technical director Morten Frost understands that this is a tough penalty, but it is a necessary move to uphold the quality of badminton in Malaysia. “When they show improvements, they will be allowed to compete again. This applies to both seniors and juniors.” Frost told The Star. BAM’s Deputy President...

Boikot Piala AFF Suzuki bukan penyelesaiannya

Photo Credit; Twitter Wajar atau tidak kita menarik diri dari Piala AFF Suzuki? Itu persoalan popular buat masa ini. Ada yang menyokong, ada yang tidak. Ada yang kata perlu kerana ianya isu kemanusiaan, ada yang mengatakan sukan tidak perlu dipolitikkan. Bagi aku, boikot bukan jalan penyelesaiannya. Kenapa? Kerana aku rasa itu satu cara paling mudah dan malas untuk menyuarakan bantahan. Kenapa boikot sekarang selepas telah berlangsung dua perlawanan dan hanya tinggal satu perlawanan lagi? Kenapa gunakan platform AFF dan bukan ASEAN? Bagi aku, terus bermain di Piala AFF ini merupakan platform terbaik untuk menyuarakan bantahan tetapi bukan dengan cara menarik diri. Menarik diri hanya satu tindakan yang singkat dan akan terhenti setakat itu sahaja. Bagi aku, lebih baik Malaysia terus berjuan...

Myanmar vs Malaysia: 5 players to watch

Photo: Asiana.my It’s do or die for Malaysia this Saturday as they take on the hosts, Myanmar at the Thuwanna Stadium in Yangon, Myanmar. We’ve seen our fair of both Malaysia and Myanmar in action and we know what both teams are capable of. As a precursor to the match this Saturday, here are some players that we think you should look out for: Amri Yahyah Photo: ESPN This is the man who leads by example. He makes things happen rather than just waiting. He didn’t let the team down when they needed him most – he scored two goals in their first game against Cambodia. In the second game, he created chances for his team mates and never gave up till the whistle went off. Amri could be our special weapon this Saturday, he is hardworking and experienced, and if anyone can tear the opponents down it...

Legenda Manchester United menyokong Donald Trump?

Lopez at fly-half for France against New Zealand

Virimi Vakatawa Camille Lopez will start at fly-half for France in their rugby union Test against world champions New Zealand on Saturday in one of three changes from the team that narrowly lost to the Wallabies. True to French form of chopping and changing the halfbacks, Lopez’s selection means he will be the third different player in as many matches to wear the No.10 shirt, the injured Francois Trinh-Duc having started in the 52-8 win over Samoa and Jean-Marc Doussain in the 25-23 defeat by Australia last week. It will be Lopez’s first start for the Tricolors since the Clermont playmaker’s appearance in the 29-0 Six Nations victory over Italy in March 2015. “Jean-Marc Doussain played a match of great courage and had a virtually irreproachable turnout against Australia, even if every play...

China’s Wu and Li enjoy flying start at ISPS HANDA World Cup of Golf

China’s Wu Ashun and Li Haotong had fun on day one of the US$8 million ISPS HANDA World Cup of Golf, knocking in improbable birdies late in the opening foursomes that sparked chest-bump celebrations on Thursday. Wu, 31, delighted the large galleries at Kingston Heath Golf Club with his heroics and exuberance by holing lengthy putts on 16 and 18 to help China sign for a two-under-par 70. They ended the day in tied second place with the United States and France, one behind leaders Spain. “It was very good and my partner was playing very good and we made a lot of birdies and it was very exciting,” said Wu, who is a two-time European Tour champion. Bogeys on 12 and 15 sent China back to level par in the alternate-shot round before Wu produced his magic by finding the bottom of the cup for the ...

Top-ranked Marin sets sights on tour final

Top-ranked Carolina Marin said Thursday she would not rest until she had captured the World Superseries Final in Dubai, after cruising through her second-round match at the Hong Kong Open. The two-time world champion from Spain is already set to finish 2016 on a career high after becoming the first non-Asian to win the women’s singles gold medal at the summer Olympics. The historic victory came months after Marin secured her second European Championship title, consolidating her position as the world number one in the Badminton World Federation’s global rankings. But outside of the Olympic triumph, Marin is still looking to grab her first superseries trophy for 2016. “I would like to end the year with the title in Dubai,” the 23 year old told AFP, brushing off suggestions that anyone threat...

Liverpool great Gerrard calls time on career

Former Liverpool and England captain Steven Gerrard announced his retirement from professional football on Thursday at the age of 36, calling time on an emblematic career. Gerrard spent 17 years at his home-town club Liverpool, 12 as captain, and won nine honours including the 2005 Champions League before finishing his career with an 18-month stint at LA Galaxy. “Following recent media speculation surrounding my future, I can confirm my retirement from playing professional football,” Gerrard said in a statement. “I have had an incredible career and am thankful for each and every moment of my time at Liverpool, England and LA Galaxy.” Although the Premier League title famously eluded him, Gerrard did win two FA Cups, three League Cups, the UEFA Cup, the UEFA Super Cup and the Community Shie...

Kesilapan pada enam minit terakhir bawa padah

Oleh Muhammad Aiman Malaysia terus gagal untuk menyaingi kehebatan India, kali ini kecundang 2-4 kepada juara Asia itu sekaligus hampir pasti menutup peluang meneruskan kemaraan ke perlawanan akhir Festival Hoki Antarabangsa, Melbourne. Skuad bimbingan Stephen Van Huizen mempamer aksi meyakinkan apabila memberi tentangan sengit untuk mengikat kedudukan 2-2 pada satu ketika, namun India tampil lebih agresif selepas itu dengan menjaringkan dua gol dalam tempoh seminit di babak keempat untuk mengesahkan kemenangan. Ia adalah kekalahan ketiga berturut-turut Malaysia kepada India bagi tahun ini di pentas kompetitif – sebelum ini tewas 0-1 dalam saingan Trofi Juara-Juara Asia bulan lalu dan 1-6 di Kejohanan Piala Sultan Azlan Shah pada April. India yang tewas kepada Australia pada aksi pertama s...
