KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia have a bright chance to win a doubles title in the World Junior Badminton Championships, which will be held in Alor Setar from Oct 23-Nov 1.

But what happens after that is of more concern for Bukit Jalil Sports School (BJSS) doubles chief coach Yap Kim Hock.

Kim Hock hopes that the pair who manage to emerge as the champions will be given the chance to stay together for at least one year to give them time to work on taking their game to a higher level on the senior stage.

LONDON (AP) — London 2012 organizers have confirmed plans to stage the badminton and rhythmic events at Wembley Arena instead of a temporary Olympic venue.

The switch from east to northwest London will trim about 20 million pounds ($31.5 million) from the cost of the 2012 Games.

The organizing committee will present the proposal for approval by international gymnastics officials at this week's world championships before seeking agreement from badminton's world federation next week.

The plans will then be presented to the IOC Coordination Commission in November and to the IOC Executive Board in December.

The Jiangsu provincial team became the biggest winner by clinching both men's and women's badminton team golds here on Tuesday.

    Spearheaded by Olympic bronze medalist Chen Jin, Jiangsu took men's team gold medal in fourth consecutive National Games after beating Fujian 3-0, whose previous best was the champion at the seventh National Games in 1993. Earlier in the morning, newly crowned world champion Lu Lan led Jiangsu women's team to lift the title in 16 years by taking down Guangdong 3-1.

    Chen Jin, world No. 4, opened the winning start for Jiangsu men's team after outplaying Chen Long, world No. 17 and world Junior champion, 21-17, 25-23.

    Chen Jin trailed in the first set 10-6 but earned six point in a row at 12-6. Then Chen Long tried to turn around before Chen Jin leveled the score at 16-16 and won the game 21-17. The second set proved a seesaw one as the two sides leveled at 8-8, 11-11, 17-17 before Chen Jin led at 20-18. Chen Long saved two game points to level at 20-20 before conceding to Chen Jin 25-23 and finishing the 64-minute duel.

    "Jiangsu's goal was defending the title. I was under great pressure as I played the first match. I have been prepared for three games since Chen Long is young and talented. He dominated well on the net during the match," said Chen Jin."I felt very nervous today and was not in my best form. I was a little bit conservative so the victory was a hard one."

    Chen Long said he was too anxious to earn points, which led to some errors.

    Tao Jiaming and Sun Junjie put Jiangsu 2-0 ahead after pipping Guo Zhendong and Liu Xiaolong in a comfortable way 21-8, 21-17.
