Malaysia has always been a powerhouse of badminton on the international stage. Everyone remembers the days of Lee Chong Wei and his incredible run of form in the international circuit. Now, there is a 25-year-old new player in the circuit, Lee Zii Jia who is trying to create an impact and hold the mantle of badminton in the same way on the world stage. He was born on March 29, 1998, in Alor Setar, Kedah, Malaysia. Jia is known for his prowess in men’s singles badminton and has achieved considerable success in his career. He has been admitted to the Malaysian Badminton Association thanks to his outstanding performances and victories on the international stage. Lee earned the men’s singles gold medal at the Southeast Asian Games in 2019. He won his first BWF Super 1000 championship at the 2021 All England Open. The 2022 Badminton Asia Championships added on to it by winning the men’s singles championship and becoming the 2022 Asian champion.

He is the second Malaysian since 2013 to win a BWF top-flight men’s singles title, after Lee Chong Wei. On November 12, Zii Jia climbed to No. 11 in the BWF World Ranking. Later on, Lee’s All England Open performance propelled him to No. 10 on March 17, 2020, in the world rankings. Lee has reached a career-high ranking of world number 7. A lot of credit has been given to the playing style and coaching methods of Liew Darren. According to Darren, “handling Zii Jia is not a challenge the challenge is to find ways on how to maintain his consistency”. His playing style is characterized by agility, speed, and powerful smashes. He is known for his ability to dictate the pace of the game and his strong attacking game. With his impressive performances, he has become a fan favourite and a prominent figure in Malaysian badminton.

In 2023, Lee started his playing season on his home turf only. However, he was defeated by the new prodigal talent from Japan Kodai Naraoka. Later on, Lee was even called to captain the Malaysian National Badminton team in the  2023 Badminton Asia Mixed Team Championships. In the round-robin stage, he won against Bharath Lateesh of the United Arab Emirates. However, he could not stand against H.S. Prannoy of India. Already the baton of leading the team has been put on the shoulders of Lee and now it’s up to the 25-year-old shuttler to prove it in the big stage.
