2021's badminton world champion Loh Kean Yew is now a brand ambassador for Grab Singapore.

On Thursday (Sep. 29), Grab said in a press release that Loh is its first Singapore brand ambassador.

Why Loh Kean Yew?

According to Grab Singapore's managing director Yee Wee Tang, Loh has worked hard for his dreams and is "an inspiration for many Singaporeans".

"His story of growth really captivated us at Grab. In many ways, Kean Yew's journey as an athlete mirrors our own journey to becoming the leading superapp in Southeast Asia today," Yee added.

"We are privileged to be working with Singapore's first badminton world champion and we hope our platform will continue to bring convenience and value to him and many others who live such fast-paced lives. Look out for our exciting upcoming campaigns with him."

He became a Grab delivery rider for a day

To officially launch the partnership, Loh joined Grab's immersion programme for a day and became a GrabFood delivery-partner.

A video of his experience as a Grab delivery rider was posted on Grab's social media platforms.

In the video, Loh is clad in the green GrabFood uniform and can be seen cycling around Singapore to make deliveries to five customers.
