National mixed doubles players, Chan Peng Soon, Peck Yen Wei and Cheah Yee See, have decided to chart their own destiny in the sport by opting to become independent players.

Peng Soon, Peck and Yee See, thanked BAM for the support and guidance over the years.

Peng Soon had mixed feeling over the decision. “I want to thank President, Tan Sri Dato’ Sri (Dr.) Norza Zakaria and BAM for giving me the opportunity to return to the national team last year. I enjoyed every bit of my time with the young players and coaches but the time has come for me to move on and think of my future.”

Peck was thankful to the Association for the guidance provided throughout her tenure with the national team. “I am grateful for the support and guidance from BAM for the past decade. I truly appreciate all the opportunities that were given to me to represent our country.”

Yee See also expressed her thanks and gratitude to BAM for supporting her. “I have been with BAM for 15 years, since I was a junior until now. Under BAM, I progressed and developed into a national player and had the opportunity to represent Malaysia in various international competitions. I will never forget the time I spent with BAM. I am sad to leave the national team but I also need to consider my future.”

BAM today thanked the players for their years of unwavering service to the country. They came through the ranks in BAM and grew into world-class players in their own right. Peng Soon won the 2016 Rio De Janeiro Olympics silver medal with Goh Liu Ying while Peck Yen Wei won the SEA Games gold while Yee See won the SEA Games silver with Chen Tang Jie and Hoo Pang Ron in Hanoi respectively.

BAM were thrilled to have had them with the Association but we respect their decision. Everyone at BAM wish them the very best in their future endeavours and hope they will continue to serve the country when called upon.
