KUALA LUMPUR: It seems like just yesterday but 15 years have gone by since doubles shuttler Hoon Thien How joined Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) as a junior.
But the good news is that this “old timer” hasn’t lost his drive nor passion for the game.
Doubles player Hoon Thien How (left) who has been with BAM for 15 years, aims to do well in the up-coming German and All-England championships with his partner Tan Wee Kiong.
Together with his partner Tan Wee Kiong, the duo are all geared up to make a quick rebound at the German Open from Feb 25-March 2 in Mulheim and the All-England from March 4-9 in Birmingham.
Thien How-Wee Kiong did well at the tail-end of last year – putting up promising performances in several tournaments.
The World No. 8 did well to reach the China Open final; ended their title drought by winning the Macau Open Grand Prix Gold; and gave a heart-warming show before bowing out in the BWF World Super Series Finals in Kuala Lumpur in December.
