    Default Lee Wan Wah married

    National doubles shuttler Lee Wan Wah did not get what he was aiming for with Choong Tan Fook in the All-England championships four years ago. But he returned home with a contact that will end in a love match.



    Wan Wah got to know a Malaysian student, May Han, on the sidelines of the competition in Birmingham. And the 29-year-old Wan Wah is now ready to walk down the aisles with her at the end of the year.

    The 26-year-old May also hails from the same hometown as Wan Wah, Ipoh.

    She was a nursing student in England and a friend introduced me to her. We remained friends and it was only much later that we became closer,?said Wan Wah, who has been with the national team for almost 10 years. Wan Wah is planning to have a wedding dinner for friends in Kuala Lumpur after the Manila SEA Games in December. The wedding ceremony is set for the following month in Ipoh.

    one interesting thing, actually , in china , people think this is not a good year for getting married.

    A one-year-old thread...and an interview with his wife, May Han, courtesy of The Star, written by Elizabeth Tai dated 04 september 2006


    May Han, wife of badminton doubles player Lee Wan Wah

    For May Han, the lives of England’s football WAGS (wives and girlfriends) are light-years away from her own.

    “In comparison to us, they don’t have to work, right?” said the medical products specialist with a chuckle.

    “People may think (my husband) gets a lot. But I think he has to put in a lot of effort to get a pay. It’s all hard work,” said May Han who first met her husband in a badminton tournament. (Question: “Were you intimidated by him back then?” May Han: “Um. I was not into badminton then. To me he was like a normal person. Definitely.”)

    Life is very ordinary and normal for a professional badminton player’s wife, she insisted. Lee, however, is often away for tournaments.

    “We probably see each other a week in a month. I’m okay because I have a dog at home,” she said.

    The only glamorous function she has attended has been the occasional Thomas Cup game, May Han said.

    “They (the players) will usually be swarmed by reporters and people like the president of the Badminton Association of Malaysia, so basically you feel proud that your husband is recognised by them. I will be somewhere in a corner,” she said, chuckling.

    “How often do we go for tournaments and get privileges? In Malaysia, we don’t (get that),” said May Han.

    But there’s no denying the fact that her husband’s popularity affects her life in many ways. Besides enquiries from colleagues about badminton tournament results or her husband’s next tournament, some, who are fans, will ask for her husband’s autographs.

    “I meet a lot of doctors. They ask more about him than about the products. But sometimes it can be an advantage as it’s an icebreaker,” she said.

    And people do approach the couple when they’re on the street.

    “I’m a little shy (when that happens). But in Malaysia ... only those who are really bold will come up to you and ask for pictures and autographs. Other than that our privacy is really respected,” she said. (To maintain her privacy, May Han prefers not to have her picture taken.)

    “My husband is a really understanding person. When people ask him for pictures, he doesn’t ignore me totally,” she said.

    May Han rarely watches her hubby play at badminton tournaments.

    “I cannot take it – I cannot watch him play at all as I feel really nervous. Honestly speaking, I’m not really a badminton fan,” she said, with a light laugh. “I only watch because he’s my husband. You tend to be worried when you see the scores – Malaysia always gets close scores.”

    His wife is not really a fan. But she knows about badminton since her husband is a pro.

    Doubles shutler Lee's first and last Asiad
    PETALING JAYA: Doubles shuttler Lee Wan Wah will be competing in his first and last Asian Games in Doha in December.
    And he hopes that the arrival of his son, Isaac Lee Zen Jun, will bring him the good fortune at the Asiad.
    The 31-year-old Wan Wah and his wife, May Han, became proud parents of the 3.2kg adorable Isaac on Sept 29.
    Just a week before the birth of the child, Wan Wah and his partner, Choong Tan Fook, gave a dismal performance at the World Championships in Madrid.
    They were the third seeds and were beaten in the third round by Indonesians Markis Kidho-Hendra Setiawan.
    Although Wan Wah has been in the national team for about 10 years, injuries had kept him out of the Asiad twice.
    “I have no plan to quit playing yet but it looks like that the Doha Games will be my first and last Asiad.
    "There are now good back-up pairs coming up the ranks,” he said.
    The back-up pairs are Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari-Lin Fui Wui, Gan Teik Chai-Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif, Tan Boon Heong-Hoon Thien How, Ong Soon Hock-Tan Bin Shen and Koo Kien Keat.
    Ahead of the Asian Games, Wan Wah-Tan Fook will compete in the US$250,000 China Open scheduled for Oct 17-22.
    The duo have a chance to avenge their defeat by Markis-Hendra and they have been drawn to meet in the quarter-finals.
    If they get past the Indonesians, they will probably play against Danes Jens Eriksen-Martin Lundgaard Hansen in the semi-finals.
    In the top half, the four contenders for a place in the final are top seeds and world champions Cai Yun-Fu Haifeng, Malaysia's Chan Chong Ming-Koo Kien Keat, Alven Hadiyanto-Luluk Hadiyanto of Indonesia and World Championships runner-up Anthony Clark-Robert Blair of England.
