At one time it was considered the best national sports association with sound administration and solid financial backing both from the government as well as the private sector.

Millions was poured in and it produced the likes of Nicol David , Ong Beng Hee and Azlan Iskandar. But while the gravy train rolled on, developing youngsters was left out as key personnel quit and the admin in shambles.

Nicol surprisingly lost to Medeline Perry in the quarters last night 11-6, 14-12, 13-15, 5-11, 8-11. While we cannot expect Nicol to win all the time, losing to a player nearing her 30s is cause for concern as Nicol had a 2-0 lead.

But closer to home there was another shocking news, the resignation of SRAM General Manager Peter Chee due to differences with a key personality in SRAM.

Let's wait and read what excuses SRAM will offer on Peter Chee's departure.
