ALOR STAR: Shuttler Tan Boon Heong, who together with Koo Kien Keat won the All-England men's doubles title for Malaysia after a lapse of 25 long years, received RM35,000 in reward from the Kedah government and the state Barisan Nasional (BN).

The state government gave RM10,000 and the state BN contributed RM25,000. The Mentri Besar, Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid, who is also the Kedah BN chairman, presented the reward to Boon Heong at his office here yesterday.

Mahdzir said that the reward was in appreciation of bringing glory to the state and also to inspire Boon Heong to achieve greater success.

Boon Heong, who was accompanied by his father Tan Yoon Meng, thanked the state for its support and pledged to bring more glory to the country and Kedah.

On Friday, Kien Keat received a similar amount as a reward from the Perak government and the state BN.

Boon Heong-Kien Keat only forged a partnership last October. And in just a short period together, they have won four titles in six international outings.

Their other victories were at the Doha Asian Games, Malaysian Open and Swiss Open. Bernama
