The desire to win. I cannot change my height, so I keep my focus on perfecting my advantages, that is smash and attacking skills.
Flandy Limpele took office with the Malaysian team in July of this year and it seems he already has a good rapport with the players. Men’s doubles player Aaron Chia was all praise about the new coach and said that the players were slowly adapting to the new Indonesian coach.
Chia said Flandy was vastly a strict person but at the same time showed care and attention to the players. And according to him, Flandy tries to incorporate the players’ opinions in training so the ultimate result is a mutual outcome.
As quoted by My All Sports, Chia said, “Since he (Flandy) started coaching, we found that he pays more attention to strengthening the strength of the players. He has a very good relationship with all the players. He is very focused and serious in training on the court.”
Chia seemed positive about the upcoming 2021 season and said that he was not worried about the extremely congested 2021 schedule. He said, “We are not too worried about the tight schedule, because the most important thing is that we have time to prepare. I think this is fair to all players.”
As for the people who reminded him of his short height, he said, “For me, badminton requires hard training, discipline and focus. The desire to win. I cannot change my height, so I keep my focus on perfecting my advantages, that is smash and attacking skills.”
