May 29th 2013 - ISPASA was officially established during the Sports Science in Coaching Conference, organized after 2013 Li Ning BWF Sudirman Cup held at National Sports Institute, Bukit Jalil, Malaysia.
Professor Mike Hughes, the keynote speaker for the conference, presented a jaw-dropping real-time analysis of a random video of Lee Chong Wei vs Lin Dan match. Needless to say, he can predict the outcome accurately even before the video ends.
At the conference, he gave the certificate of appointment to Dr. Tengku Fadilah Tengku Kamalden, one of the panel advisors of National Sports Institute of Malaysia, to setup and head an Asian chapter of ISPAS. This drive comes from the potential growth in the region, and also because of the existing needs from the sports community.
More than that, ISPAS believe that Malaysia is the best equipped and is in the best position to spearhead the development of Performance Analysis in Sports in Asia.
