Astro is supporting Malaysia’s badminton stars competing in the semi finals and finals today first with the live Youtube broadcast of Dato’ Lee Chong Wei in the men’s badminton singles semi-final at 7:30pm on Astro Arena’s YouTube channel.

Chong Wei, who coolly smashed out Taiwan’s Chou Tien-Chen during the quarterfinals of the Rio Olympics men’s singles badminton is now one step closer to achieving his dream – cinching the elusive Olympic gold medal.


But first, he has to go head-to-head with archenemy and 2-time defending champion, Lin Dan of China, in the men’s singles badminton semi-finals.


This is followed by the live streaming on Youtube for Goh V Shem and Tan Wee Kiong in the men’s badminton doubles final at 10:15pm on Astro Arena’s Youtube channel.

Goh V Shem and Tan Wee Kiong are the first Malaysian pair to make the final since Cheah Soon Kit and Yap Kim Hock won silver in the 1996 Atlanta Games. They will play China’s Fu Haifeng/Zhan Nan in the final later tonight.
