Beng Hee vows to continue nurturing Malaysian squash talents

Ex-Malaysian squash player Ong Beng Hee has been nurturing squash talents under the Squash Racquet Association of Malaysia (SRAM) for the past 10 months and he doesn’t intend to stop anytime soon.

The former world number seven admitted that the task was never designed to be an easy one. But having trained under world class coaches in the past, Beng Hee is determined to transmit his knowledge by guiding these players through specific training modules.

“After 20 years in the squash arena, I have committed many mistakes and hurdled through various challenges,” he told Sinar Harian.

“With that, I will use every mistake that I went through as a learning point to teach the young ones with the hopes that they will not repeat the same mistakes,” he added.

“One of my biggest desire is to witness the national squash team compete in the Olympics. That is why I chose to contribute my expertise to these upcoming players.

“Winning the competition isn’t the biggest deal, but to be able to compete in the prestigious event is the most important thing,” he added.

Since becoming a professional player in 2006, Beng Hee has competed in 202 tournaments, winning 16 of them in the process.
