BUKIT JALIL: Lim Khim Wah-Goh V Shem finally nailed their first Super Series title.
And what better way to mark their breakthrough than in front of a vociferous home crowd cheering them all the way at the Putra Stadium.
Understandably, the duo just could not hold back their delight as they jumped up in joy after scoring the winning point as a wild celebration erupted inside the stadium.
On Sunday, the duo proved to be the new heroes for the country when they dumped China’s Chai Biao and Hong Wei 21-19, 21-18 to claim the title at the Maybank Malaysian Open.
The Malaysian fans joined in the celebration and one can hardly blame them as they have been starved of a men’s doubles major title for the last four years.
Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong were the last pair to win a Super Series title, also at home in 2010.
