PETALING JAYA: It takes a brave decision for a player to jump into coaching at a young age but former national junior Marcus Sim didn’t think twice when the opportunity arose in the United States three years ago.

Marcus secured the boys’ doubles gold with Jess Tay for Sarawak in the 2016 Malaysia Games (Sukma) and was one of the leading national juniors then but quit a year later to opt for studies at the University of Rochester in New York.
