KUALA LUMPUR: Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) dropout Jagdish Singh is going great guns with his new club – Kawasaki Badminton Club. Jagdish and partner Roni Tan Wee Long, seeded fourth, won their first career international title when they upset second seed Raymond Tam-Glenn Warfe of Australia 21-14, 21-19 at the Victor Maribyrnong International in Melbourne, Australia.
Jagdish, who came through the Bukit Jalil Sports School (BJSS), was dropped from the national back-up squad last year and the Negri Sembilan lad decided to try his luck with Kawasaki this year.
In fact, Kawasaki also enjoyed a high in the international tournament when Millicent Wiranto of Indonesia won the women’s singles title while Chiang Jiann Shiarng came in second in the men’s singles event.
Said coach K. Yogendran: “This is our club’s best international result. Victories like this certainly motivate us and shows us that we are on the right track.”
The other coaches in the Kawasaki set-up are Li Mao, Yeoh Kay Bin and Vountus Indra Mawan.
Prior to this, Kawasaki’s best results were achieved last year through Chan Kwong Beng (men’s singles champion at Hanoi International Challenge) and Yogendran (men’s singles champion at Bangladesh International Challenge).
