The Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) held a meaningful ceremony at the national centre of excellence, the Akademi Badminton Malaysia (ABM) earlier today.
BAM President, Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Mohamad Norza Zakaria unveiled the ‘Wall of Champions’ commemorating the successes of Lee Zii Jia at the 2021 All England and Pearly Tan-M Thinaah at the 2021 Swiss Open.
Match incentives worth RM30,000 for Zii Jia and RM15,000 for Pearly-Thinaah were also handed out by Tan Sri Norza.
“Today, we have the pleasure of holding this short, but sweet ceremony to show our appreciation for the heroics of our young players at the All England and the Swiss Open.
“We are also launching the ‘Wall of Champions’ with the aim to celebrate the World Tour wins of our players.
“It is my hope that there’ll be more champions produced from this national badminton centre of excellence, the ABM and placed on this Wall of Champions.
“It will spur the confidence, motivation and humility of the young players in our facility to achieve the much needed consistency in their displays,” said Tan Sri Norza.
