Tragedy struck the Bad¬≠minton Asia Junior Cham¬≠pi¬≠onships in Indone¬≠sia as 17-year-old Chi¬≠nese play¬≠er Zhang Zhi¬≠jie col¬≠lapsed on court from car¬≠diac arrest dur¬≠ing a match. 

The inci­dent, which result­ed in Zhang’s pass­ing, has sparked a crit­i­cal dis­cus­sion about play­er safe­ty and med­ical pro­to­cols in badminton.

Footage revealed a con­cern­ing 40-sec­ond delay before med­ical per­son­nel reached Zhang. This has led the Bad­minton World Fed­er­a­tion (BWF) to launch a full inves­ti­ga­tion in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Bad­minton Asia and the Indone­sian bad­minton asso­ci­a­tion (PBSI).

The BWF is review­ing all aspects, includ­ing whether prop­er med­ical pro­ce­dures were fol­lowed and if the emer­gency response time­line met required standards.

Bad­minton leg­end Lee Chong Wei urged the BWF to exam­ine match sched­ules, empha­siz­ing the need for suf­fi­cient recov­ery time for ath­letes. Chi­nese media has also raised ques­tions about the tour­na­men­t’s emer­gency response preparedness.
