Jason Teh is Singapore’s next big hope.

Singaporean badminton player Jia Heng Jason Teh is gearing up for the TotalEnergies BWF World Championships 2022 with a determined mindset. He recently impressed the badminton world by challenging two of the best players at the Commonwealth Games, showcasing his exceptional skills on the court. Teh’s outstanding performance in Birmingham included winning four matches and taking India’s Lakshya Sen, the eventual winner, to a thrilling third game in the semifinals.

Pursuing Excellence

Teh firmly believes that to reach the same level as top-ranked players, he must continuously push himself. In his own words, “I must have that fire to win.” He acknowledges that playing in his comfort zone won’t be enough, as he is still climbing his way to their level. Teh recognizes the importance of improving his consistency, shot quality, and reducing unforced errors to become a formidable force in the badminton world.

Consolidating Achievements

As an understudy to world champion Loh Kean Yew during the mixed team event in Birmingham, Teh became Singapore’s sole hope in the men’s singles category after Loh’s quarterfinal elimination. Although Teh faced challenges during the bronze medal match against India’s Kidambi Srikanth, he fought valiantly despite struggling with physical exhaustion. Teh’s determination and perseverance inspire him to continue working towards becoming fitter and better at recovery. He cherishes this experience as a lesson that will shape his future career.
