KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysia's Rio Olympic Games darlings are back in the spotlight.

Badminton silver medallists Chan Peng Soon, Goh Liu Ying and Goh V Shem are making their acting debut in a local Chinese film.

The three have cameo roles in local production company Asia Tropical Films' latest movie Goodbye Mr Loser.

Mixed doubles pair Chan and Liu Ying were seen shooting some scenes with Mediacorp artiste Ian Fang at the Wangsa Maju Flats here yesterday.

One scene saw the shuttlers playing a young couple having a major disagreement in front of their apartment.
Film director Adrian Teh, 32, said he had wanted to cast the shuttlers even before they became Olympic stars.

"After watching them bring us Olympic glory, I knew that audien­ces would want to see more of them so I arranged for them to be in this movie together," said Teh, 32, who confessed to being an avid badminton player himself.

He was full of praise for the shuttlers.

"For first-timers, they are very natural in front of the camera. They even managed to deliver some humorous elements that we asked of them," he added.

"I'm game for this new expe­rience as long as it does not interfere with our badminton training," said Chan, who added that he and Liu Ying had trained as usual in the morning.

Liu Ying, 27, said she was glad to land the role.

"It was actually an easy collaboration," she quipped.

It has been a thrilling journey thus far for both the Malaysian Olympians at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and the rest of us supporters. On Wednesday night, the nation held their breaths as our mixed doubles badminton pair Goh Liu Ying and Chan Peng Soon played in the finals, vying for the most wanted gold medal. It was a spectacular match where they gave their all and the result was a silver medal—the first medal for Malaysia in that Olympics category.
 "We are all so proud of her. We never expected her to achieve so much," said Qi Liang, who is still coming to grips with the fact that his sister was now a national celebrity.

"In the beginning, the goal was to perform in the group stage. Then, when we got into the semi-finals, I thought that maybe we may have a chance at a bronze medal. When we won the semi-finals, I felt like I was in a dream. Did I really win? Is this not a dream? I have dreamt for many times how great a feeling it would be to be able to stand on the podium."

"I am just Goh Liu Ying. I did not have such remarkable achievements like the Chinese team, I did not have the steady performance of the Korean team, I did not have the tactical strategy of the European teams nor did I have the experience of the Indonesian team. I am just Goh Liu Ying.
I was not born with the body of an athlete. When others completed the training set by our coach, I could only complete half of the training. I couldn't build up my muscles like the other athletes. With smaller muscles, there is less protection and my chances of injuries increase. As I have undergone surgery, I also could not overexert myself during training. The strength of both my legs is also lesser, compared to others.
An Olympic medal, to me, was a distant dream. To be able to stand on the Olympic podium was a fantasy.
" - Goh Liu Ying's heartwarming post about her Olympics journey
