The Long Road and Perseverance That Made Rexy Mainaky A Successful Coach

[ad_1] –

Badminton News : Rexy Mainaky has achieved legendary status as a player but has come a long and arduous journey of 18 years to produce a world champion as a men’s doubles coach.

Thanks to Aaron Chia-Soh Wooi Yik, Rexy Mainaky finally achieved that goal in Tokyo two days ago and immediately challenged himself to the next task of producing the next Olympic champion.

He will have the next two years to achieve that at the 2024 Paris Olympics.

“As a men’s doubles coach, it’s my first time producing a world champion and it’s very satisfying,” said Rexy.

“It has been a long journey to achieve this feat and it would not have been possible had it not been for the way Aaron/Wooi Yik came back from their Commonwealth Games setback.

“As a coach, I need to create a new challenge and the next one is obviously to create an Olympic champion for Malaysia in 2024.”

“For that, I have to make sure Malaysia has a few more high-end pairs with Aaron/Wooi Yik leading the way,” he said.

Rexy’s main focus is on helping Goh Sze Fei/Nur Izzuddin Rumsani and the young Man Wei Chong/Tee Kai Wun combination to start to become an established combination and provide capable support for Aaron/Wooi Yik.

Rexy Mainaky is relieved that he was able to become a top coach after many disappointments in his constant search for a world champion.

The Indonesian player turned coach in 2004 after a successful playing career that culminated in him winning two of the highest honors – the Olympics (Atlanta 1996) and the World Championships (Lausanne 1995) – with Ricky Subagja.

Rexy started his coaching career in England in 2004 then came to Malaysia and served the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) for seven years before leaving in 2012.

His first stint in Malaysia saw Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong reach the final of the World Championships in Paris in 2010, before losing to Olympic champions Cai Yun-Fu Haifeng of China.

He briefly worked in the Philippines after leaving BAM in 2012 and returned to Indonesia as their coaching director. His next stop was in Thailand in 2017 where he had a successful stint.

The Indonesian coach continued to produce Olympic and world champions during his tenure while Thailand also produced their first mixed doubles winner Dechapol Puavaranukroh/Sapsiree Taerattanachai in 2021.

During his first stint in England, Rexy also oversaw mixed doubles training where Nathan Robertson-Gail Emms became world champion in Madrid in 2006, a year after he joined BAM as a coach.

However, Rexy can’t claim that success story as his own, but there’s no denying his role in changing Aaron-Wooi Yik’s form to guide them to the world champion crown.

He is now optimistic about writing more success stories for Malaysia in the men’s doubles, having passed the tough test to become a super coach of bright colors.
