[Malaysia Badminton International Challenge] Chinese women's doubles Jin Yujia and Huang Jiaying win the championship
Chinese women's doubles Jin Yujia/Huang Jiaying beat their Thai opponents in the Malaysia Badminton International Challenge that ended on Sunday (December 18), winning 2-0 and winning their first challenge championship of the season.
The world's 41st ranked Jin Yujia/Huang Jiaying played against the world's 385th ranked Thai combination Onicha/Atithaya for the first time in this battle. When they faced off in the championship battle, the former held the lead in both games at the beginning and finally won.
Jin Yujia and Huang Jiaying are currently not ranked high in the world, so they cannot participate in many BWF tours. The International Challenge is not part of the BWF Tour, and the points will be less than the general tour. The Chinese combination has slowly improved the world rankings by relying on the scores of the Challenge and International Challenges over the years.Further reading [Malaysia Badminton International Challenge] Chinese women's doubles Jin Yujia and Huang Jiaying entered the final
