In preparing to encounter Gideon and Sukamuljo once more at the Tokyo 2020 men's doubles quarterfinals, Chia and Soh devised a specific game plan with their coach Flandy Limpele during training to overcome the Indonesian pair and, well, the rest is history.
The elder Soh played for the national team in the 1970s and 1980s, partnering with Ong Beng Teong in men's doubles, while Soo, an Olympian, partnered with Cheah Soon Kit to help Malaysia lift the coveted Thomas Cup in 1992.
After having represented Malaysia twice in the 2018 and 2020 editions previously, Wooi Yik, who makes up the partnership with Aaron Chia, hopes Bangkok will be a third time lucky by helping the national team to break the 30-year jinx to lift the coveted cup on May 15.
Aaron, who partners Soh Wooi Yik in men’s doubles, is unfazed, adding that the role of team skipper does not add any extra pressure on him. In fact, the Tokyo Olympic 2020 men’s doubles bronze medallist said the experience gained at the BATC 2022 would only serve to spur him to inspire sixth-seeded Malaysia to spring a surprise in Thailand next month.
