KUALA LUMPUR: Shuttler Soh Wooi Yik is one of the most improved doubles players in the national team this year but he admits that he still has some catching up to do - to become as successful as his uncle and former great Soo Beng Kiang.

The 21-year-old Wooi Yik and his partner Aaron Chia have declared that this is their best playing year after winning the doubles gold medal at the Philippines SEA Games in Manila on Monday and reaching the final of the All-England in March.
