The News

Loh Kean Yew of Singapore defeated India's Kadambi Srikant in the final game of World Badminton Championship to clinch his maiden title. He defeated Srikanth in straight sets to clinch his first title.

behind the news

Loh is just 24 year old and was 41 in the world ranking when this campaign was started. However, refused to give up and defeated the very experienced Indian player, Kadambi Srikanth. Badminton World Championship is also considered as the World Cup of Badminton because players from all over the world compete in this event. Interestingly, there were two players from India who competed against each other in the semis. Srikanth was defeated in straight sets by 21-15 and 22-20 which meant there was no need for a third set.

beyond the news

Time in again we have seen players like LOH clinching titles from experienced campaigners like Srikanth. When it was a heartbreak for India, it was a proud moment for the people of Singapore. Hopefully, LOH will be able to continue his form in the incoming events as well and will continue to make his country proud.
