Monday, October 1, 2012
RuiLin Huang of the Shuttlesport/Douglas College badminton academy started her season the same way she left off last season - by winning! The Burnaby resident won the inaugural Chinese Cup tournament held in Richmond this past weekend by defeating the #1 seed Joanna Che in 2 straight games 21-12, 21-15.
After a hard fought 3 setter in the semi-finals RuiLin found her speed and control to comfortably win the final.
In the Men's singles event, former Royals star Alvin Lau stunningly upset the #1 & 2 seeds to win his first singles tournament in over 5 years. Alvin, known more for his accomplishments in doubles & mixed doubles defeated Shuttlesport club teammate Luo Wei in the semi-finals before knocking off former club mate KaiLai Zhang in the final in 3 thrilling games!!!
Earlier in the day Alvin and Melody Liang lost a tight mixed doubles final. In all, a fantastic weekend for the Shuttlesport/Douglas College badminton academy.
