PETALING JAYA: Cheah Liek Hou will take a break from playing in the SU5 (upper impairment) men’s doubles, which is a non-Olympic event, to fully focus on his title defence at the Paris Paralympics.

He became Malaysia’s first Paralympic champion in badminton by winning the singles gold in Tokyo in 2021 and Liek Hou is expected to lock horns again with his nemesis Dheva Anrimusthi of Indonesia in Paris this year.
