The Singapore Badminton Association (SBA) has re-elected Lee Yi Shyan as its chief for the fourth running term, after holding its annual general meeting last weekend.

This is likely to be his last two-year term as president. Mr Lee, who is also Senior Minister of State (Ministry of Trade and Industry and Ministry of National Development), has served at the helm since 2008.

The association's constitution allows for a president to serve a maximum of eight years, or four straight terms.

He said: "I take a long-term view of the sport's development. In the next two years, we will have to build on what we achieved, to build a stronger institution for the badminton sport."
