Malaysian badminton player Goh V Shem is in the "formerly known as" category.

He lived as Goh Wei Shem for 23 years but decided in 2012 that the Wei was weighing him down. He subbed it out for V, representing "victory."

Plus he sought some good Asian karma.

"Feng shui," he said Tuesday, referring to the Chinese philosophy of harmonizing one's environment in relation to energy flow. (Sorry if this American is not explaining it right.)

Goh said his new middle name is "better for me."

Hard to argue.

Goh and partner Tan Wee Kiong advanced to the doubles final Tuesday by taking down a pair from China in a 21-18, 12-21, 21-17 thriller. Malaysia has won five all-time medals in badminton but never gold.

After winning the final point Tuesday, Tan immediately left the court to hug his coach, Jeremy Gan.

Also good karma, perhaps.

V Shem-Wee Kiong swallowing the bitter pill of Olympic loss

SEPANG: Men’s doubles pair Goh V Shem-Tan Wee Kiong are still haunted by their near miss in the final of the Rio de Janeiro Olympics.

Nerves cost the duo dearly as they muffed the chance to bag a historic first-ever gold for Malaysia.

En route to the final, the world No. 12 claimed major scalps by beating world No. 1 Lee Yong-dae-Yoo Yeon-seong of South Korea (quarter-finals) and world No. 5 Chai Biao-Hong Wei of China (semi-finals).

V Shem-Wee Kiong had also beaten their final opponents, China’s Fu Haifeng-Zhang Nan, in the group stage.

Wee Kiong admitted they are still having a hard time getting over it.

“To be honest, both of us really couldn’t sleep after losing that final,” said Wee Kiong.

“We tried not to think so much about those service mistakes but it just kept coming back to haunt us.

“This is something that we really need to overcome. We just need to accept it and try to move on and hopefully bounce back stronger,” added Wee Kiong.

The pair’s next assignment will be the Japan Open from Sept 20-25 where they are seeded sixth.

Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) president Tan Sri Mohd Al-Amin Abdul Majid believes V Shem-Wee Kiong need to pick themselves up again.

“It will not be easy as they have set their own high standards by winning a silver medal at the Olympics,” said Al-Amin.

“It’s hard to expect them to go on and win every Superseries tournaments after this because it will be normal for them to have ups and downs.”

Al-Amin also added the Rio Olympics proved that Malaysia are not solely dependent on Chong Wei for glory.

“Of course there will be talks of finding Chong Wei’s successor. Rio has proven that our programme is working,” said Al-Amin.

“It is an uphill challenge for us, finding a next Chong Wei but it can be done and we just need to bridge the gap and keep pushing those who are next in line.”

Rio 2016: V Shem-Wee Kiong can now aim for gold at Tokyo 2020 Olympics


KUALA LUMPUR: The intense men’s doubles match between Malaysia and China in their fight for the nugget of gold on Friday garnered the attention of millions of Malaysians.

Netizens applauded Malaysia’s doubles pair Goh V Shem and Tan Wee Kiong, ranked world's No.12, for their admirable spirits in defeating a horde of high-profiled players to reach the final.

Right from the word go, the duo showcased inimitable determination as well as physical and mental strength when up against the more experienced pair from China, Fu Haifeng and Zhang Nan.

During the London 2012 Olympics, Fu Haifeng was paired with Cai Yun to claim the gold medal, while Zhang Nan clinched bronze with doubles' partner Zhao Lei.

Malaysia's badminton aficionados were hopeful that V Shem-Wee Kiong would up the ante for gold medal at the Olympics 2020 in Japan.

Wee Kiong-V Shem stun Koreans to reach Olympic semis




RIO DE JANEIRO: Goh V Shem and Tan Wee Kiong always do it the hard way against world No. 1 Lee Yong-dae and Yoo Yeon-seong.

On Monday, the Malaysians triumphed again in three games as they beat the South Koreans 17-21, 21-18, 21-19 to reach the men’s doubles semi-finals at the Rocentro Pavilion 4. It was only V Shem-Wee Kiong’s second win over the South Koreans in seven meetings.

V Shem-Wee Kiong had scored their first-ever win over Yong-dae-Yeon-seong at the Sudirman Cup team event last year, scoring a dramatic 20-22, 21-14, 27-25. They lost all the other five matches in straight games.

V Shem-Wee Kiong will now meet China’s Chai Biao-Hong Wei for a place in the final.

“Once we were in front in the second and third games, we kept on pushing. We are really happy because we played well.

“But we are not going to think too far ahead, just go one step at a time,” said V Shem.

Having won all their Group B matches, Wee Kiong-V Shem were brimming with confidence, but Yong-dae-Yeon-seong brought them down to earth by winning the first game.

The Malaysians were level at 15-15, but once the Koreans pushed up a gear there was no doubt who would win the game. And Yong-dae-Yeon-seong did it in 28 minutes.

In the second game, the Malaysians were always in front and the winners were never in doubt as they triumphed in 29 minutes.

With a small band of Malaysian fans chanting “Ole, Ole”, Wee Kiong-V Shem were all fired up in the rubber. Again, they were in front and went on to lead 20-16. But the Koreans closed the gap to 20-19.

Fortunately, the Malaysians found the mental strength to clinch the final point to proceed to the semi-finals in their first Olympic appearance.

Medal in the bag as Goh-Tan storm to final


RIO DE JANEIRO: Malaysian badminton is flying at the Rio Olympics.

For the first time in the history of the Games, Malaysia will be in two finals – not counting Lee Chong Wei’s expected trip to the pinnacle of world badminton.

On Tuesday, men’s doubles pair Goh V Shem-Tan Wee Kiong joined mixed doubles pair Goh Liu Ying-Chan Peng Soon in the final by stunning China’s Chai Biao-Hong Wei 21-18, 12-21, 21-17 in the semi-finals at the Riocentro Pavilion Four.

V Shem-Wee Kiong will meet China’s Fu Haifeng-Zhang Nan for the gold on Friday. Haifeng-Zhang defeated Marcus Ellis-Chris Langridge of Britain 21-14, 21-18 in another semi-finals. The Malaysians have beaten Haifeng-Zhang at the group match.

It took V Shem-Wee Kiong 64 minutes to record the win and become the third Malaysian pair to reach the Olympic final after Cheah Soon Kit-Yap Kim Hock in Atlanta in 1996.

It was V Shem-Wee Kiong’s fourth win over the Chinese in seven meetings.

With the Malaysian fans shouting Malaysia Boleh at the start of the match, V Shem-Wee Kiong were never troubled in the first game. There were hardly any long rallies in the error-filled game.

V Shem-Wee Kiong led all the way until the Chinese levelled at 18-18. Thanks to three mistakes by Chai Biao-Hong Wei, the Malaysians wrapped up the game in 21 minutes.

The second game was also not much different from the first, with both sides taking a cautious approach. But it was Chai Biao-Hong Wei who were in the forefront, not due to their brilliance but the Malaysians’ errors, to level the match in 18 minutes.

There was much more excitement in the rubber.

The Malaysians led for most part of the game, leading 11-6 at the changeover.

Despite being penalised for a service fault, the Malaysians kept their cool to lead 20-17.

And then, to the delight of the Malaysian fans, Wee Kiong secured the winning point to put Malaysia in the final.

Malaysia are now assured of two silvers to add to the one won by divers Pandelela Rinong-Cheong Jun Hoong, making it the most successful outing for the country in the history of the Games.

For Wee Kiong, he is not thinking about Friday’s final.

“At the moment, I need to relax. We’re looking forward to it as we’ve hardly had any time to relax ... playing a few tough matches for the last few days,” he said.

Asked how he was going to relax over the next two days, the 27-year-old, whose father was at the stadium to support him, said: “I’m going to sleep.”

He admitted that they were too gung-ho to win the match in the second game.

“We lost our concentration and were blurred a bit. After the second game, the coaches (Jeremy Gan and Chin Eei Hui) discussed tactics with us and we managed to keep ahead.”

Asked if they will now go for gold, V Shem, also 27, said: “Of course. At least I have a medal now. In the final, we have no pressure, just fight all out and try to get a better medal.”

Rio heartbreak for V Shem-Wee Kiong as they fall in final


RIO DE JANEIRO: It was another heartbreak for Malaysia.

For the second time in Rio de Janeiro, Malaysia has lost the chance to win its first Olympic gold medal.


Goh V Shem-Tan Wee Kiong gave it their everything, but still fell short – going down 21-16, 11-21, 21-23 to China’s Fu Haifeng-Zhang Nan in a 67-minute thriller at the Riocentro Pavilion 4 in Rio de Janeiro on Friday.

V Shem and Wee Kiong were clearly disappointed to let the gold slip away after coming so close at the world’s biggest Games.

“We didn’t manage well enough today. We made too many simple mistakes. We didn’t think of winning Malaysia’s first Olympic gold. Our target was to win the match,” said Wee Kiong.

Added V Shem: “I made a few mistakes at the crucial stages. But I think we did a great job here.”

Chef de mission Tan Sri Mohamed Al Amin Abdul Majid was crestfallen.

“It was so close. We can’t fault them as V Shem and Wee Kiong tried their best,” he said of Malaysia’s third silver in Rio.

Earlier on Wednesday, Goh Liu Ying and Chan Peng Soon lost in the mixed doubles final to Indonesians Tontowi Ahmad-Liliyana Natsir. Malaysia’s other silver came from divers Pandelela Rinong-Cheong Jun Hoong.

Malaysia also has a bronze through cyclist Azizulhasni Awang in men’s keirin.

But Malaysia has a third shot at gold on Saturday when world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei takes on China’s world No. 2 Chen Long in the men’s singles final.

Friday’s showdown proved to be one match too far for V Shem-Wee Kiong after their gallant run to the final, having stunned world No. 1 Lee Yong-dae-Yoo Yeon-seong of South Korea in the quarter-finals and China’s Chai Biao-Hong Wei in the last four.

The Malaysians also had the psychological advantage, having beaten Haifeng-Zhang Nan 16-21, 21-15, 21-18 to win their Group B clash here to take a 2-1 lead in their head-to-head record.

But it was Haifeng-Zhang Nan who shot out of the blocks – taking a 7-3 lead in the opening game. But V-Shem-Wee Kiong hit a purple patch thanks to their brilliant play and the Chinese’s errors, winning seven points in a row to lead 10-7.

After that, the two 27-year-old Malaysians were never really troubled as they strolled to a 21-16 win in 20 minutes.

Again, it was the Chinese who set the pace – with an 11-4 and then 20-10 leads in the second game – before wrapping it up 21-11 to force a rubber.

The Chinese again adopted an aggressive approach to surge 9-5 and 11-8 ahead.

The changeover did V Shem-Wee Kiong a world of good as they managed to narrow drew level at 12-12.

But the Chinese again pulled ahead to 17-14.

Again V Shem-Wee Kiong fought back and took lead for the first time at 18-17.

It was then neck-and-neck, with the Malaysians reaching game point first at 20-19.

But the Chinese pair managed to draw level, and then went on to save two match points to win 23-21.

It was China’s first gold at these Games. At the London Olympics, the Chinese swept all five golds at stake.
