KUALA LUMPUR: Standing at 1.85m and 1.84m tall respectively, shuttlers Zulfadli Zulkifli and Misbun Ramdan Misbun are fondly referred to as “the twin towers” by their team-mates.
And just like the towering landmark in the heart of the city, both club players want to stand tall in their maiden outing in the Asian Junior Championships, which will begin tomorrow at Stadium Juara in Bukit Kiara.
Of the two, the 16-year-old Zulfadli has a bigger role to play, having been chosen to feature in both the mixed team and individual events.
Ramdan, who is the son of national coach Misbun Sidek, has only been selected for the individual event.
The mixed team event starts tomorrow while the individual event will begin on Wednesday.
