The Badminton Asia Junior Championships match, which took place on Sunday in the Indonesian city of Yogyakarta, pitted Zhang against Kazuma Kawano of Japan.

A guy rushes to Zhang’s rescue as he collapses, but he stops and looks away from the court as if he were looking for instructions.

According to a PBSI spokeswoman, medical personnel had to get the referee’s permission before they could access the court.

PBSI is contemplating asking the federation to reevaluate this regulation so it may be adjusted to suit various scenarios. 

The International Football Association Board (IFAB) and other professional sports organizations have similar regulations.

The relevance of regulations in comparison to a person’s life was hotly debated, with virtually no one agreeing with the rule.

The Chinese team’s official, coach, doctor, interpreter, and tournament medical personnel responded quickly when Zhang passed out on the court, according to the Chinese association, and that is their official position.
