One of the largest badminton tournaments, the PETRONAS Malaysia Open, is currently taking place in Axiata Arena, Kuala Lumpur! Fellow Malaysians, it’s high time we express our boundless support to the national badminton team so they’re all fired up for the tournament ahead.  

‘When we unite our voices, we ignite their spirit’ — being the advocate of unity, PETRONAS urges all Malaysians to rally behind our players through #GemilangkanLagi, their newly launched series on Instagram and TikTok!

Chipmunks ?: Aaron Chia and Soh Wooi Yik 

Need we say more? Paired up in 2017, this men’s doubles pair is no stranger to fellow Malaysians, especially after they brought home gold from the Southeast Asian Games in 2019

Just last year, the duo unlocked yet another significant achievement by winning the 2022 BWF World Championships, clinching Malaysia’s first-ever world title in the tournament!
