Many will claim credit or start to lay their claim on the improvement shown by doubles pair Koo Kien Keat/Tan Boon Heong who defeated their bogey Korean pair for the first time.
But it was not the efforts of these braggers who really are just hangers on but the men behind the scene are really those who matter.
One such person was Roesdi Ghani from the National Sports Institute, a Kelantanese who never learnt how to speak the Thai dialect despite growing up near the Malaysia- Thailand border.
Roesdi is the man who has made the pair faster and stronger and it all boils down to changes he initiated in their physical training.
Watch Roesdi share his thoughts on how committed the duo were in adapting to changes. Ad Roesdi also says that Koo/Tan are good enough for a medal at the Olympics.
