Aaron nailed it finally!
 Aaron has finally nailed it! He has beaten defending champion, Darren Tan, his second title to date.
It was exactly one year ago after the 12th Inter-MBA Tournament, spurred by the boy’s encouraging results, we started the boys to train seriously and today, Aaron’s victory is the testament to all our family’s one year of tireless effort to get the boys where they are today.
Aaron was lucky to have a free passage all the way to the Quarter Final. He had his nerve tested early by a strong hitting Tay Zhao Jun from Taman Megah.  However, Aaron prevailed and won. In the semi-final against Tan Chi Hong aka dinosaur despite being three years his senior, Aaron had not much trouble apart from Chi Hong's close net play.

Ryan cant match the speed of Darren

In the final, Aaron raced ahead by some large margin due to Darren’s uncharacteristic unforced errors. He won his first set by an unexpected large margin 21 - 5. In the second set, Darren tried to come back but Aaron stood his ground and won 21 - 12 to claim his victory. 
Ryan was seeded No. 8, unlike his younger brother, had to battle his way from round 1. When he crossed swords with the defending champion in the quarter final, he ran out of steam and lost to the diminutive no. 1 seed.
That evening, we celebrated with a hearthy Japanese meal of Aaron’s choice followed by a movie “White House Down” to unwind the boys. The next day, they were back to serious training. I spoke to Aaron not to be carried away by this success. This is only but the beginning. He had to keep his focus on achieveing his targets next year. To close the gap with his bench mark, Ooi Zhin Yang and to get into the National Circuit.
