Malaysian shuttlers sweep gold, silver, bronze medals at Commonwealth Youth Games

Up-and-coming young Malaysian shuttlers made waves at the Commonwealth Youth Games 2008 (CWYG), winning gold, silver and bronze medals on the last day of the badminton event late Friday.

It was an all-Malaysian affair in the men’s doubles finals, where the Yew Hong Kheng and Ow Yao Han pair beat Lim Yu Sheng and Low Wei Sheng for the gold in an exhilarating three sets which took 30 minutes. Yew and Ow lost the first set 14-21 but bounced back to win the next two sets, 21-13 and 21-14.

Earlier, Ng Hui Ern and Lim Ee Von easily defeated the New Zealand pair of Jonggowisastro and Mary O’Connor 21-8 and 21-19 for the bronze in the women’s doubles.

With the victory in badminton, Malaysia’s medal haul in the third CYWG games rose to 13 in total — three gold, four silver and six bronze. India, using the Pune games as a training platform ahead of the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games, topped the table with 33 gold medals. Malaysia is in seventh spot.
