As Malaysia steps closer to securing its first gold medal in the upcoming 2020 Tokyo Olympics, silver medalists of the 2016 Rio Olympics – Chan Peng Soon and Goh Liu Ying (Badminton Mix Doubles) are working hard as ever to achieve that dream. As sports unite Malaysia as one, Japan originating yogurt drink, Yobick, initiates the “Sokong Wira Malaysia” campaign, encouraging Malaysians to show their unwavering support towards our beloved athletes.
Representing Malaysia for the third time in the Olympics, Goh Liu Ying said, “The opportunity to be offered this chance once again, makes all those countless practice hours and injuries suffered worthwhile. Despite all the circumstances, I have always remained positive and kept my eyes on the prize. To be able to win gold in the Olympics would give me the greatest joy throughout my career. With eyes set on the gold medal for the upcoming 2020 Tokyo Olympics, I am determined to make Malaysia a proud nation.”
Her partner, Chan Peng Soon, commented saying “Missing out on family times and big celebrations, these are the times that I find hardest to move on. My supportive family members have always reassured me that they understand this journey I am on is to be a living proof to everyone out there, that with motivation and rigorous training, everything is possible. With hopes of ending the gold medal drought for Malaysia, I will be dedicating the result of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics to everyone who has believed in us. Malaysians, this win will be for you.
In commemoration of this occasion, Yobick will also be introducing an all-new limited edition yogurt drink, the Yamanashi Grape. Mr. Takeshi Suma, CEO of DyDo Drinco Malaysia, said that the launch of the new drink is timely and hopes that it will bring Malaysia together during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. He added saying that Yobick is proud to sponsor the two athletes since 2019 and will continue supporting them to victory.
Yobick invites Malaysians to come together to encourage our athletes and cheer them on via the “Sokong Wira Malaysia” campaign.
