"Busy" Lee Chong Wei received a super knockout in the early rounds of the China Super Series when he lost Denmark's Jan O Jorgensen 6-21 21 13 17 21, in Shanghai, Wednesday.
Chong Wei, the World's number one player, who recently complained about tight schedules which make it difficult for him to represent his country at the SEA Games in Laos (10-17 Dec), is said to have just recovered from a knee injury.
In the Hong Kong Super series which ended last Sunday, Chong Wei, 27, defeated Peter Gade from Denmark 21 13 13 21 21 6 to become champion. And, three days later he lost in a tournament where he was the runner up to Lin Dan.
The next tournament on "busy" Chong Wei's schedule is the Super Series Masters Finals in Johor Bahru (2-6 Dec).
Is this the year of failures for Malaysian Sports? Or are these failures going to get those concerned to see that things have not been right for a long time and layers of wrongs are now destroying sports?
Anyway, I will write about these failures in my annual review soon. There way out to save some sports that are moving in circles of failure is volunteerism - all office bearers voluntarily resign and let new people with fresh ideas and no vengeance, malice and other motives in them to run sports. Why should all resign? Well you have failed. Haven't you?
