KUALA LUMPUR, July 31 — Malaysia’s top badminton men’s doubles pair Aaron Chia-Soh Wooi Yik delivered Malaysia’s first medal at the Tokyo Olympics, with a bronze following their 17-21, 21-17, 21-14 win over Indonesia’s Muhammad Ahsan-Hendra Setiawan.
The duo came back from a lacklustre first set to win their first ever Olympic medal in their maiden appearance.
The world No. 9 pair are the only survivors in the badminton draw after every other shuttler, except men’s singles ace Lee Zii Jia, lost in the group stages.
