Jin Wei thankful to BAM for lifting ban

GOH JIN WEI has expressed her appreciation to the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) for their quick solution in regard to her appeal.

The 21-year-old shuttler was initially slapped with a two-year suspension together with Lee Zii Jia earlier this month.

This came after two-time world junior champion Jin Wei changed her mind, decided to make a competitive return, just three months after announcing her premature retirement.

However, many fans were up in arms over BAM's controversial move to punish the nation's two best prospects.

Jin Wei, however, submitted an appeal letter on Wednesday, and this led to BAM lifting the suspension on her the next day.

Jin Wei, who has signed up with Kuala Lumpur Racquets Club (KLRC), is now free to compete in any competitions.

"I would like to thank BAM president Tan Sri Norza Zakaria and BAM for their understanding and accepting my situation to reach an amicable solution to the issue," wrote Jin Wei on her social media pages.

"I am thankful for BAM's blessing to continue my badminton career as a professional player.

"I will forever be grateful for all the support and nurturing from Norza, BAM, all the coaches and the support staff from the first day I joined BAM.

"I would also like to thank our Prime Minister Datruk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob and our Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu for taking the time from their busy schedules to meet me and assist in resolving the issue with BAM.

"I would also like to thank everyone for all their continuous support throughout my career.

"I hope there will be continuous support for BAM and for myself as I embark on a new journey as a professional player.

"I will continue to do my very best to promote Malaysian badminton at international level alongside all the other Malaysian shuttlers," added Jin Wei.
