REXY Mainaky has been on the lips of every Malaysian since mens doubles Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong burst onto the badminton scene. Nobody denies that Rexy has played an instrumental role in the pairs development but, as Timesports K.M. BOOPATHY finds out, there is much, much more to the deeply religious 1996 Atlanta Olympic gold medallist.

KOO Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong are shaping up to be the worlds best doubles pair, but a threat to their supremacy still remains in the shape of the South Koreans.

The Malaysian pair may have notched 30 wins in 32 matches over six tournaments, but they have lost twice in three meetings to South Koreas second-ranked pair of Lee Jae Jin-Hwang Ji Man. And they have yet to play World No 3 Jung Jae Sung-Lee Yong Dae.

About 500 people, including the Sports Minister Datuk Azalina Othman Said and Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) president Datuk Nadzmi Mohd Salleh, turned up to greet the duo, who did Malaysia very proud by winning the prestigious All-England title and also the Swiss Open crown.

The two titles took their tally to four in just six international tournaments together since they forged the partnership last October. They were also the champions in the Asian Games in Doha last December and in the Malaysian Open the following month.

The seven-time All-England champion said he was proud of the duo's achievements but winning titles alone was not everything, "rather leaving behind a legacy for the young ones to follow and emulate is more paramount".

"I hope we do not have to wait for another 25 years to win an All-England title or the Asian Games gold," said 77-year-old Eddy when met at the launching of the Asian Sports Awards, here.
