KUALA LUMPUR: The successful partnership of Goh Liu Ying and Chan Peng Soon has been temporarily disbanded.
The 24-year-old Liu Ying has finally decided to go for a surgery to treat her nagging knee problems. The op on both her knees will rule her out of competition for a minimum of six months.
The damage is more severe on her right knee, which has a meniscus tear and a partial tear on her ligament. There is also a small meniscus tear on her left knee.
Liu Ying said on Friday that it was best for her to go under the knife now – and then work towards getting to peak form for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
