He won the first, the SU5 men's singles title (physical impairment), after downing Indonesian shuttler Suryo Nugroho 21-13, 21-10 in the final played in Manama.
The win avenged his defeat to the same opponent in the second round of the Thailand Para International Badminton Championship two weeks ago.
The 35-year-old athlete then continued his excellent momentum after partnering Muhammad Fareez Anuar to beat Indian pair Chirag Baretha-Raj Kumar for the men’s SU5 doubles title.
Despite taking the first set 21-18, Liek Hou-Muhammad Fareez was stretched by the Indian pair in the second before losing 19-21.
They clinched the title in the deciding tie with a 21-14 victory - BERNAMA
