come on mas..grab the gold medals!
Top seeds Malaysia assured of at least a bronze
PETALING JAYA: Malaysia have been tagged as the top seeds for the men’s team badminton competition ahead of defending champions Indonesia in the Laos SEA Games next month.
And that means they will not be meeting Indonesia until the final.
Only seven countries have entered for the men’s team competition in Laos and top seeds Malaysia, by virtue of a first-round bye, are assured of a bronze medal.
Malaysia go straight into the semi-finals where they will meet third seeds Thailand.
With Lee Chong Wei and Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong – ranked No. 1 in the world in the men’s singles and doubles respectively – leading the charge, Malaysia should have no problems reaching the final.
Indonesia open their campaign against Vietnam and should face fourth seeds Singapore for a place in the final.
Indonesia will be banking on Sony Dwi Kuncoro and Simon Santoso for the singles points and on Olympic champions Markis Kido-Hendra Setiawan and the rising young pair of Yonathan Suryatama Dasuki-Rian Sukmawan, who were runners-up in the Japan Open recently, for the doubles points.
In the women’s team competition, Malaysia are the third seeds and their chances of making the final look slim as they have Indonesia in their way.
Malaysia, led by Wong Mew Choo and Chin Eei-Hui Wong Pei Tty, should beat hosts Laos in their opening tie to set up a semi-final date with second seeds Indonesia.
The other semi-final should be between top seeds Thailand and fourth seeds Singapore.
For the record, Malaysia did not have a single representative in the final of the team or individual event at the Korat SEA Games two years ago.
Indonesia made a clean sweep of all seven gold medals at stake.
However, Malaysia are looking to return with at least two gold medals this time.
it is a shame that INA still relying on Sony Dwi Kuncoro and Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan
to compete in SEA GAMES
I really doubt that Ina will sweep all 7 golds like they did 2 yrs ago.....but all disciplines are 50-50 chances.it could go either way.....
mas also have to rely on their currently wr 1 in the md and ms category respectively
Can't help it. buddy. KONI wants to ensure that INA gets gold medals as many as possible from badminton.
Relax, MAS also have to rely on Datuk, KKK/TBH, WMC, and WPT/CEH for the golds. And they're all #1 in their country.

not a BWF sanctioned event..
yup. its not bwf sanctioned event. Its just a normal games. just like east asian games in hong kong
Both SEA and EA games are more political significant than BWF sanctioned events....
Yes, IMO better if PBSI send. young players, but KONI ask PBSI to guarantee gold medals at least 4-5, so PBSI must send 1st layer. Otherwise, PBSI doesn't have good players in 2nd layer.
MS: Tommy Sugiarto? WS: Lindaweni? MD: Bona/Ahsan, Wifqi/Afiat? WD: Anneke/Annisa XD: Frans/Pia...Hmmm
Of course, they are..
..hence the point in my post. Same thing with the Asian Games & Commonwealth Games (both of which are not BWF sanctioned).
Maybe LYB's boss told him to grab all gold medals, otherwise
step aside.... just kidding.
who is him?
Must be Chairman Hu, I supposed....
huh??? But China is not part of SEA. Instead, China is part of EA.
Okay, then Chairman Hu told LYB to grab all gold medals of EA badminton
haha, no la, I mean if we wanna talk about China team, let's shift to the EA games thread. There is a thread for EA games. If not, we were gonna get out of topic in this thread as China is not part of SEA.
And half of these are World #1.
And laos spectators should be lucky and thankful to this
