KUALA LUMPUR: Men’s doubles world champions Aaron Chia-Soh Wooi Yik have received another incentive amounting to RM100,000, this time from Southern Score Builders Berhad, a construction management services company.
Gan Yee Hun, the company’s executive director and chief executive officer also announced that they would contribute RM200,000 to the Petaling Badminton Club (PBC), where both Aaron and Wooi Yik were nurtured before they joined the national team.
“We hope that the contribution provides some support as they nurture talents to represent the country. PBC have had a history of producing several of the country’s well-known players such as Chen Tang Jie, Cheam June Wei, Man Wei Chong and Goh V Shem,” he added.
Earlier this month, the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games bronze medallists received incentives totalling RM500,000 for their world title feat from the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) and several other official sponsors. — Bernama
