PUTRAJAYA: Chan Peng Soon had two reasons to be upset on Monday.
First, he was unhappy with the prize money given to the mixed doubles winners in the National Grand Prix Finals at the Precinct 11 Sports Complex.
Peng Soon and his scratch partner Lai Pei Jing received only RM1,600 each after winning the title.
They were declared winners after their opponents Ong Jian Guo-Lim Yin Loo conceded a walkover following Jian Guo’s back injury.
Peng Soon said the prize distribution was unfair and hoped the organisers would review it and alleviate the status of the National GP Finals.
The men’s doubles champions took home RM11,000 (RM5,500 each) while the women’s doubles received RM4,800 (RM2,400 each). The men’s singles winner collected RM7,000 while the women’s singles champion was given RM4,000.
