Chong Wei Feng, the former Malaysian men’s singles player has now swerved into the fish business after his retirement. The former successor to Lee Chong Wei ended his 15-year badminton career last year with a hip injury.

Chong joined the Malaysian national team in 2004 at the age of 15 and was the world No. 12 at his highest ranking in his career. He was on the Malaysian team that won the 2014 Commonwealth Games mixed team gold medal and the 2015 South East Asia (SEA) Games individual gold medal.

He was also an instrumental part of the Malaysian team that reached the final of the 2014 Thomas Cup. He won all his group stage matches against opponents like Parupalli Kashyap, Lee Dong Keun, HK Vittinghus and Hayom Rumbaka. His only loss came in the final against Kento Momota.

He resigned from the national team in May 2016 after failing to make it to the top 16 points to qualify for the Rio Olympics. The failure to qualify for the Olympics was a big factor in his decision to leave the national team after which he went on to become a professional player.

However, in July 2019, his persistent hip injury made him make the final decision to hang his rackets for good.

As reported by My All Sports, after retiring, he has ventured into many ventures like opening his own badminton academy and assist in coaching Malaysia’s women’s singles team. Currently, he has a business that deals in aquarium fish, which he conducts it through the internet.
