Good Weekend It Was!

Indeed a good weekend it was 

Arsenal drew 1 – 1 with Champions, Manchester United at home which still kept them in hunt for next year’s European Champions League.

Datuk Lee Chong Wei had to work hard in India to earn his third Super Series title in 2013 although dropping a set against the tenacious Kenichi Tago of Japan.

The icing on the cake was, Aaron has beaten Chai Chun Hong (also 10) in two sets. Chun Hong was the runners up of last year’s Inter-MBA tournament in December 2012. It may just be their routine sparring sessions but it was a good indication that Aaron has progressed well over the past 4 months.

Ryan continues to undergo his foot rehabilitation every night to keep him bouncy. If I could turn back the clock, I would surely start the boys on foot and legs exercises first to get their proper footing right. True as what Kwun of BadmintonCentral advocated, excerpt here...

"...the one and only thing that i recommend, is free, the only thing you sacrifice in getting this imho, pretty sizable improvement, is you need to spend the time to practice it and what is it? The old saying, if you can't get there, it doesn't matter how good you can hit the birdie. i recommend you practice your footwork."

This week, the boys are in fact still in the middle of their academic exams. Therefore, we will take badminton off their minds temporarily for this week so as they can concentrate on their remaining papers.
