[新聞]世界羽聯前副總裁古納蘭今晨因肝癌逝世, 葬體週四舉行


古納蘭在今年1月15日"大馬羽總感恩晚宴"與李宗偉聊得很開心, 李宗偉在當天蟬聯八屆馬來西亞冠軍

 馬來西亞羽壇傳奇人物古納蘭(Panchantram "Punch" Gunalan)在 8月15日清晨六點因肝癌逝世, 享年68歲. 他在1970年吉隆坡的湯姆斯盃決賽大出風頭, 當印尼隊幾乎橫掃馬來西亞隊, 古納蘭以26歲"高齡"成為馬來西亞湯盃代表隊的菜鳥, 雖然首戰男單輸給印尼隊的 Muljadi, 不過他與搭檔伍文美在男雙比賽擊敗印尼傳奇人物 Injartno 及 Mirjati 為馬來西亞贏得一分, 不過最後馬來西亞還是以 2-7 輸給印尼.

 他是1944年出生於雪蘭莪州的雪邦, 他之所以26歲才首次代表馬來西亞參加湯盃, 是因為他原本在英國留學研讀工程科系, 他在1969年才贏得第一個國際賽事冠軍--美國公開賽的男雙冠軍, 在1970年代表馬來西亞參加湯姆斯盃, 打進決賽, 及贏得丹麥公開賽男雙冠軍, 也與伍文美赢得曼谷亞運男雙金牌, 他自己也贏得男單金牌. 他在1971年達到生涯高峰, 贏得全英公開賽, 美國公開賽, 加拿大公開賽及丹麥公開賽的男雙冠軍, 1972年再度衛冕丹麥公開賽的男雙冠軍.

 在結束選手生涯後, 他加入大馬羽總, 從事培育馬來西亞國家隊選手的工作, 他最輝煌的成績就是率領馬來西亞隊在1992年贏得湯姆斯盃, 之後在1997年被指派加入國際羽聯(International Badminton Federation, IBF), 擔任副總裁, 他在國際羽聯其間推動四項影響重大的決策, 一是把國際羽聯的總部由成本開銷昂貴的英國搬到相較便宜的馬來西亞首都吉隆坡, 二是推動現行的落地得分的21分制, 三是將每兩年一屆的世界錦標賽改成每年一屆, 四則是推動新的國際巡迴賽--超級系列賽.

 雖然他名為國際羽聯副總裁, 但實際上就等於是當時國際羽聯的"地下總司令", 不過在2005年韓國補教大亨姜榮中當選更名後的世界羽聯(Badminton World Federation, BWF)總裁後, 古納蘭的職位也升至代理總裁, 兩人對於權力分配多有扞格. 而姜榮中也不是省油的燈, 他在2007年5月20日的年會上公開朗讀一封古納蘭在三年前寫給大馬羽總會長的信件, 信件中透露他暗中洩露其他爭取世界羽聯總部國家所提出的條件給大馬羽總. 於是在同年8月吉隆坡世錦賽期間, 姜榮中召開記者會, 宣布馬來西亞青年及體育部要求古納蘭辭去世界羽聯執行副總裁的職務.

 不過古納蘭也不是省油的燈, 馬上在次日同一個場地, 在四位國際羽聯委員陪同下召開記者會(見下圖), 宣布對姜榮中提出不信任案, 在國際羽聯理事會獲得 14-5 的票數通過這項不信任案.



 不過要提前結束姜榮中的任期必須經由世界羽聯年度大會表決, 姜榮中則是在2008年5月20日的年會上絕地大反攻, 也經由蒙古代表提出對古納蘭的不信任案扳倒這位世界羽聯的"幕府將軍".

 雖然古納蘭曾經權傾一時, 有些作為違反運動協會的民主程序, 不過他推動羽球改革的目的是希望能夠讓羽球成為最成功、普及的持拍運動, 他也坦言將世錦賽改成每年一屆的目的是基於商業考量, 以增加不同的國家選手參與.

 他最令人懷念的是他熱情的笑容及推動羽球改革的決心.


今年1月15日, 香港攝影師梁家樂在"大馬羽總感恩晚宴"為他留下紀念.

 他的喪禮將在週四(8月16日)下午兩點舉行, 喪禮結束將進行火化.
