Kuala Terengganu: Inspiration comes from a lot of different places, but one thing that can always sweep us from under our feet is a great sports underdog.
After a turbulent career at Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM), the two ex-BAM players Mak Hee Chun/Tan Bin Shen who used to be nobodies after leaving BAM have somehow made their way to become somebodies. After winning the Sabah Open two weeks ago, Mak Hee Chun and Tan Bin Shen have every reason to smile again on Tuesday as they defeated BAM's back-up shuttlers Tan Wee Gieen and Teo Ee Yi 21-18, 21-15 in 35 minutes to win their first ever national men's doubles title.
Mak Hee Chun (top right), Tan Bin Shen - go ahead to celebrate, then recharge, and refocus. Happy New Year!
