Will KKK-TBH rise to the occasion?

.Well national doubles coach Tan Kim Her believes so.

"True champions will fight back when put in a corner and Kien Keat-Boon Heong are in that situation now. Kien Keat may not get another opportunity to play in the Olympics so London is where he must prove his credentials as a big match player again."

Read KM Boopathy's full report in the NST.

The pair have not been performing well since for the past couple of years. In fact, they put up a gritty performance in the 2010 World Championships in Paris but failed to shine after that.

Even at the KLRC Gold for Gold programme recently, Kien Keat admitted they have an uphill battle to silence their critics. But they seem motivated to slug it out and give their best.

Realistically speaking, many still argue that Lee Chong Wei remains as the nation's best bet - despite his ankle having yet to fully recover and his family issues - as they have given up on Kien Keat-Boon Heong for glory.

However, Kien Keat and Boon Heong could end up having a smashing time in London - as they did in Paris two years ago.

Only time will tell if they are game to take on the world's best.

And here's hoping the 27 BA of Malaysia officials who will be in London will "motivate" the duo to create an impact on the courts.

HD says: All the best to the national badminton team.
