With South Korea already opting out of the Junior Challenge Open Badminton championships in Jakarta in the wake of the West Sumatra earthquake, local young stars are also steering shy.

The six-day event was touted as a warm-up prior to the World Junior Badminton Championships, but the national badminton authority is sending only five of its 39 junior athletes.

The second edition of championships, co-sponsored by the Tangkas Badminton Club and retail chain Alfamart, commenced Monday in the capital.

The five players from the junior national camp are Kevin Alexander, Suci Rizki Andini, Tiara Rosalia Nuraidah, Della Destiara Harris and Gebby Ristyani Imawan, all playing in doubles.

Suci plays with Kevin in the mixed doubles, and with Tiara in the girls' doubles, while Della and Gebby are also in the girls' doubles.

PETALING JAYA: Kuan Beng Hong beat Mohd Hafiz Hashim for the first time in his career to emerge as the men’s singles champion in the Terengganu Open badminton championships yesterday.

Second-seeded Beng Hong’s 21-18, 21-17 win in the 30-minute final also prolonged Hafiz’s barren run in the National Circuit.Taking off like a shuttle: Kuan Beng Hong’s success in the Terengganu Open will be good for his morale.

And Beng Hong’s victory, after going through a slump, has opened up his chance to be considered for international tournaments again.

Beng Hong had been dropped from the selection of the team for next week’s Vietnam Open due to poor form.

Now, Hendrawan will recommend that the shuttler be included in the squad for the two Super Series in Asia – China and Hong Kong – in November.

Beng Hong is thrilled with his breakthrough.
