Former world No. 2 Kento Momota will have his suspension for illegal gambling lifted on May 15, the Nippon Badminton Association’s board of directors decided Sunday.

Momota was suspended for gambling in casinos, which are illegal in Japan. Since May 30 last year after serving a 30-day ban from his club team NTT East, he resumed practicing while taking part in rehabilitation programs that involved community service.
