After 12 long years serving Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM), Kim Hock’s journey with BAM is finally over. Kim Hock’s last post was the doubles chief coach with the Bukit Jalil Sports School.

What is the reason behind not renewing Kim Hock’s contract? Below might be a few reasons :-

  • BAM not happy with Kim Hock’s work ethics
  • Poor performance
  • Money not enough

The decision also ended any hopes of Kim Hock has of being one of the candidates for BAM’s national coaching director’s post.

Until now the reasons are still not clear but this is what Kim Hock said “I better not make any statements now. Give me a few days to look into this matter.”

Kim Hock’s memorable times with BAM is to produce a few world junior champions for Malaysia.

We at Badmintonfreak wishes all the best to Kim Hock.

    may be BAM wanted to fill in coach which can only produce kampung champion just like our football team, only kampung title can achieve…

  • So sad and dissappointed to hear the news, what is the turning behind…?
    YKH has been produced 3 pairs of WJC with flying colors and what had BAM coaches done and arrange for them? If based on performance, all the BAM coaches must be terminated immediately for the politics, poor performance (except LCW, he is talented even without coaches also can won the match)….What had Tan Kim Her contributed..??? and Rashid Sidek ???
    They just sat down there without doing things and wait for YKH to send the WJC, without progressive while other countries keep on having the new and excellent players…BAM, YOU WILL REGRETTED ONE DAY to lose such a good coach..!
