Badminton’s Choi Sol-gyu’s disciplinary action reversed after he missed a training session

It has been revealed that the Korea Badminton Association took disciplinary action against national team member Choi Sol-gyu (28-Yonex) for missing training.According to the Korea Badminton Association on Friday, the Performance Improvement Committee decided to suspend Choi from the national team for two years in October, but recently reversed the decision.Initially, the committee voted to recommend the two-year suspension to the board of directors, but it was reconsidered after some argued that the punishment was too severe.”We all agreed that we had no choice but to sanction him for his inappropriate behavior as a national team member,” said an association official, adding, “He didn’t submit a retirement application (at the time), but we didn’t take any other action considering that he submitted a document stating that he would not participate in next year’s national team selection.”

At the BWF World Tour Super 500 Korea Open in July this year, Choi reportedly drank alcohol, missed training the next day and brought his girlfriend to the national team’s accommodation.At the time, he was not competing in the tournament due to an injury to his men’s doubles partner Kim Won-ho.The situation became complicated when Choi still hadn’t officially submitted his retirement papers to the federation. The federation, which thought Choi was retiring, lost the basis for overturning the disciplinary action.An association official said, “We have communicated our intention to send his retirement documents several times, but no letter has been sent.”It is argued that the federation should have been principled from the outset and taken reasonable measures to punish the player. It could also be argued that it took three months after the grounds for disciplinary action to begin the process in earnest.Choi competed at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, which kicked off in September, and won a silver medal in the men’s doubles event.”We gave him a chance until the (Hangzhou) Asian Games after interviewing him,” an association official explained, “but we excluded him 카지노사이트킹 from training at the Jincheon Athletes’ Village.”
