BWF to continue live test on instant review system in 2014

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec. 15 (Xinhua) -- Badminton World Federation (BWF) said on Sunday that the instant review system will be used in leading tournaments in 2014 following its successful debut at the World Superseries Finals.

The five-day tournament was the first time that players were allowed to challenge the line calls with the camera-based system.

"After the five day of experiment, we find it very exciting, very positive about the results," said event chief Peter Tarcala. "We have received very positive comments not only from the players, but also the team managers, coaches and technical officials."

"So we are going to continue with all the Superseries events next year and the two major BWF events," he added, referring to the Thomas and Uber Cup as well as the World Championships.

Tarcala said BWF will make changes to the glitches emerged from the tests, including the gestures used by the judges to communicate the results of challenges, which have caused confusions among players and spectators.
