Malaysians love their badminton. This is a fact. Malaysia also have not won the Olympics Gold medal for badminton. That is also a fact.
Badminton is probably Malaysia’s favourite past-time. We take this sport very seriously indeed. The Olympic Games that is going on right now is a big deal obviously then for Malaysia and their Badminton contingent.
XOX Mobile, Malaysia’s first MVNO shares Malaysia’s passion for Badminton and thirst for a Gold Medal in the Olympics. To further boost Malaysian shuttlers Chan Peng Soon and Goh Liu Ying in their Olympic Games Badminton Mixed Doubles finals they are offering an MYR100,000 reward for the win.
The pair, ranked 11th in the world are considered underdogs going into the match today. They have been upsetting higher ranked pairs from China and are playing the world number 3 pair, Tontowi Ahmad and Lillyana Natsir of Indonesia for Gold.
Here is hoping that they win and we get a public holiday with that.
