NST MALAYSIA’S preparation for the World Championships was jolted yesterday when national doubles coach Rexy Mainaky collapsed during a training session at the National Sports Council’s Gymnasium 2 in Bukit Jalil. The incident happened when Rexy was giving multi-shuttle drills to Gan Teik Chai and Zakry Latif. Rexy slowed down, sat and then collapsed. He was then rushed to the Sunway Medical Centre in Bandar Sunway in an ambulance provided by the National Sports Institute and was admitted for further tests. Rexy, when met at the Sunway Medical Centre, said he had breathing difficulties on Wednesday but recovered, only to suffer the same condition during training yesterday. "I never had any heart problems before and my thoughts were about my family and the preparations for the World Championships," said Rexy. "The doctor said that my heart is fine and there was phlegm in my ribs. I think the stress and mental pressure got to me as I was thinking too much about the World Championships. "I want the players to fight on. The bigger the challenge is, the harder they should battle and I’ll be there all the way for them. I want to be there to guide them in Madrid and see our players winning rather than take a rest."
