Morten Frost satisfied with SEA Games achievement

A total of two gold medals, four silver medals and two bronze medals from the Singapore SEA Games is considered a satisfying result for the national badminton squad as it has been a long time since they took home more than one gold medal.

The last time Malaysia secured two gold medals was during the 2003 SEA Games in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam, courtesy of Datin Wong Mew Choo in the women’s singles section and men’s doubles duo Choong Tan Fook and Lee Wan Wah.

The achievement this year was a perfect fit of the target set by the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM), which had at least four representatives in the finals of the 2015 SEA Games. And so did it happen as the finals saw two men’s singles players, two women’s doubles’ pair and one mixed doubles pair.

“We have proved that this achievement is not an impossible task and I am very delighted with it,” said technical director of BAM, Morten Frost Hansen as quoted from Utusan.

“In this year’s edition of the SEA Games, young players like Goh Jin Wei had proven herself to be a competitive opponent and that is a positive sign for the national badminton scene.”
