Its a little too late at this point of their career to make a comeback whereas other top pairs are already 1 level above them in terms of overall standard. This is their final Olympic and instead of being a favorite pair to win, they are still struggling with form, body weight issue and fitness problem at this point of time.
They self destructed their own career to say the least.

STRATEGISE: Coach tells duo to go aggressive as they are poor in defence
Koo Kien Keat (left) and Tan Boon Heong.
MEN'S doubles Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong must adopt an all out attacking strategy if they hope to win a medal in the Olympics as their coach Pang Cheh Chang feels the time is too short to do much about their poor defence.
Kien Keat-Boon Heong's below par defence has seen them suffer heavy defeats at the hands of the world's top four -- Cai Yun-Fu Haifeng of China, South Korean pairs Jung Jae Sug-Lee Yong Dae and Ko Sung Hyun-Yoo Yeon Seong and Denmark's Mathias Boe-Carsten Mogensen and Cheh Chang believes "attacking" is the only thing that can help them in London.
Cheh Chang said Kien Keat-Boon Heong are aware of their weaknesses and are finding hard to beat the top pairs who not only have a consistent attacking game but also possess sound defence and quality service which give them the edge.
"Their attacking has improved but they are still weak in defence. The top pairs have learnt to make it difficult for them by reducing their attacking options but Kien Keat-Boon Heong must keep trying.
"They must always find a way to attack as they still have a chance to win a medal in London," said Cheh Chang.
"They did well against weaker pairs until the quarter-finals in the Indonesia Open last week when Boe-Mogensen restricted their attacking abilities. Once the Danes took over the attack, Kien Keat-Boon Heong couldn't match them.
"Kien Keat-Boon Heong must find ways to maintain their attacking game throughout a match. They must also improve their service as this will give them better attacking options.
"If they can work on these two aspects, there is a chance to overcome the top pairs."
Kien Keat-Boon Heong, ranked World No 8, are unseeded for the Olympics and the draw on July 23 will offer a clearer picture of how far they can advance in London.

Well... you do have to give some credit to Koo as he looks like he's lost some weight and Tan seems to have gained some muscles. But I don't have too much high hopes for them... not even a bronze, I'm afraid.

Everyone has their own life
If you said their personal life affects their performance, did you put yourself in their situation? Facing stress and training everyday, they are just finding ways out to destress themselves.
Don't judge someone by what they do daily, KKK used to drink even before the doubles won their first medal. Why no one pointed that out when he brought glory to the nation but an issue for him when they are in the downturn? Why not supporting them but continue telling others how hopeless they are?

Kien Keat and Boon Heong have a tendency to spring surprises
By RAJES PAUL
KUALA LUMPUR: Write off men’s doubles shuttlers Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong’s chances at the London Olympic Games at your own peril.
On paper, Kien Keat-Boon Heong have as good a chance as the rest of the 16 qualifiers to win a gold medal in their second Olympic outing despite failing to get past the quarter-finals in Beijing four years ago.
All they need is “an extra dose of will power” during the competition, which will be held at the Wembley Arena from July 28-Aug 5.
They go into the Games knowing they have beaten all their opponents – except for the two relatively new pairings of Bodin Isara-Ma**neepong Jongjit of Thailand and Poland’s Adam Cwalina-Michal Logosz.
It’s all in the head: Malaysians Tan Boon Heong (left) and Koo Kien Keat have beaten all the top pairs in the world.
These two pairs only began playing together more than a year ago.
The Malaysians’ main rivals will be four-time world champions Cai Yun-Fu Haifeng of China, South Korea’s Lee Yong-dae-Chung Jae-sung and Ko Sung-hyun-Yoo Yeon-seong and Denmark’s Mathias Boe-Carsten Mogensen.
Kien Keat-Boon Heong surprised many by beating Cai Yun-Haifeng at last year’s All-England; pulled the rug from under Yong-dae-Jae-sung at the 2010 World Championships; and ended their losing streak against Sung-hyun-Yeon-seong at the Thomas Cup qualifying tournament in Macau in February.
It seems that they have a tendency to rise to the occasion when least expected.
National doubles chief coach Tan Kim Her is hoping that Kien Keat-Boon Heong will shed their underdogs’ tag and rebound with strong performances in London.
“Koo-Tan have beaten every pair who will be in London. Of the 16 qualifiers, they have not played against only two.
“At this stage, the race for the men’s doubles gold is wide open,” said Kim Her yesterday.
“Yes, they have been struggling but I see positive changes in them in training. They are looking very determined.”
Kim Her said that although defending champions Cai Yun-Haifeng and Boe-Mogensen have been consistent this year, it was still difficult to pick them as the favourites.
“Everyone is putting extra efforts to win at the Olympic Games and it all depends on the players’ strong will and determination on match day.
“With a smaller number of quality qualifiers this time, this year’s competition will be interesting from the group stage onwards,” he said.
All the 16 qualifiers will be divided into four groups during the July 23 draw and Kien Keat-Boon Heong will be have one of these four seeded pairs – Cai Yun-Haifeng, Yong dae-Jae-sung, Boe-Mogensen and Sung-hyun-Yeon-seong – for company.
The top two pairs will advance to the elimination round.
Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong versus:
Cai Yun-Fu Haifeng (Chn) – lost 9, won 4;
Lee Yong-dae-Chung Jae-sung (Kor) – lost 12, won 2;
Mathias Boe-Carsten Mogensen (Den) – lost 4, won 7;
Ko Sung-hyun-Yoo Yeon-seong (Kor) – lost 6, won 1;
Chai Biao-Guo Zhengdong (Chn) – lost 0, won 1;
Mohd Ahsan-Bona Septano (Ina) – lost 2, won 3;
Fang Chieh-min-Lee Sheng-mu (Tpe) – lost 1, won 1;
Naoki Kawamae-Shoji Sato (Jpn) – lost 0, won 3;
Bodin Isara-Jongjit Maneepong (Tha) – lost 0, won 0;
Ingo Kindervater-Johannes Schoettler (Ger) – lost 0, won 1;
Vladimir Ivanov-Ivan Sozonov (Rus) – lost 0, won 2;
Howard Bach-Tony Gunawan (Ina) – lost 0, won 2;
Adam Cwalina-Michal Logosz (Pol) – lost 0, won 0;
Ross Smith-Glenn Warfe (Aus) – lost 0, won 1;
Dorian Lance James-Willem Viljoen (Rsa) – lost 0, won 1.

Their loss to Koreans is incomprehensible. Koo Kien Keat's smash is too weak in the Korean perspective.
