Shi Yu Qi Listed in 2022 World Championships, BWF Criticized by Malaysian Federation – The participation of Chinese badminton player, Shi Yu Qi, in the 2022 World Championships is getting the spotlight.

The reason is, the China Badminton Association (CBA) had previously rejected Shi Yu Qi’s participation in the World Championships, because he was still serving a ban.

However, Shi Yu Qi suddenly entered the list of participants for the 2022 World Championship on 19 July.

This decision was questioned by a number of parties. They considered that BWF had broken the rules that had been made and agreed upon together.

According to BWF statute section 3.2.20 it is explained that a player or partner who does not confirm participation or has declined in Phase One cannot be included again.

This means that, referring to the regulation, the player or partner concerned can no longer be registered in the championship.

However, Shi Yu Qi was reportedly allowed to compete with the status of replacing Chen Long.

The decision in fact cannot be taken for granted, one of them by the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM).
