Congratulations to our one only Goh Jin Wei for winning the TM Team Malaysia Favourite Athlete Award last night. She was leading all the way with more than 3000 votes ahead of swimmer, Welson Sim and wushu exponent, Loh Jack Chang.
Based on her performance especially in the last two years, she certainly deserves this award. The world junior champion pocketed RM10, 000 together with a trophy during the award ceremony that was held in Putrajaya International Convention Centre.
Jin Wei who was delighted with the results attributed her success to her family, coaches and friends. She also expressed her gratitude to all those who voted for her as she knew that she was competing against very talented athletes.
“I would like to thank you all for voting for me as I could not have won this award without your support. I will continue to work harder and make Malaysia proud and the award I have received today is definitely a motivation for me to persevere and strive to greater heights in this sports,” said Jin Wei after receiving the mock cheque and trophy.
The Penang born lass rose to fame after becoming the youngest ever shuttler to win a local Open title. She then continued her success at the 2015 SEA Games defeating the second seed to win the bronze medal for Malaysia.
That’s not all, her best achievement has to be winning the elusive World Junior Championships title in Lima, Peru last year, hence promising a brighter future in the girl’s singles department.
