“We’re finally back with another guest episode and it’s none other than Aaron Chia, the first ever Malaysian World Champion (along with partner Soh Wooi Yik)!
Tune in to hear all about winning that gold medal by beating his idol Hendra Setiawan, but also to get the story behind Aaron and Soh’s partnership.
Furthermore we dig deep into Aaron’s everyday life training at BAM and how he juggles family life and the crazy hectic schedule on the BWF World Tour!
Lots of other topics we touch on as well such as being coached by Rexy Mainaky, handling the pressure of expectations, not being able to win a title at World Tour level and lots of other stuff too.
We really enjoyed chatting to Aaron, so we hope you guys enjoy this episode too!
