Reward pours in to keep Thinaah-Pearly thirsty for more

Cool effort: Thinaah and Pearly posing with Wai Yin after receiving the monetary boost.

PETALING JAYA: Continue to give your 100 per cent commitment.

This is the advice given to shuttlers Pearly Tan-M. Thinaah after the duo received a special incentive of RM50,000 from their sponsor 100Plus for winning the French Open.

“100Plus hopes this incentive will further motivate Pearly and Thinaah. We look forward to another smashing performance from them,” said Leong Wai Yin, business director of F&N Beverages Marketing Sdn Bhd yesterday.

The world No. 9 women’s doubles pair have had an amazing run this year.

Pearly and Thinaah, who are the isotonic drink’s brand ambassadors, were gold medallists at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games and created history when they became the first Malaysian women’s pair to win the French Open in Paris.

The reward will be an apt catalyst for them to end the year with a smashing show in the season-ending BWF World Tour Finals in Bangkok next week.
