Myanmar selects badminton players for upcoming SEA Games

YANGON, Jan. 29 (Xinhua) -- The Myanmar Badminton Federation (MBF) organized a final trial here on Sunday to select national badminton players for the upcoming Southeast Asian (SEA) Games.

"It is the final selection of male badminton players for upcoming SEA Games in Cambodia," Myo Kyaw Thu, the MBF's joint secretary, told Xinhua.

The federation will select three male players for men's singles and men's doubles from the final trial event, which runs from Jan 28 to 30, he said.

Myanmar will send a mixed team of six badminton players to the SEA Games. The federation already selected three female players for the SEA Games from a national tournament in December last year, he said.

Myanmar's badminton players will compete in the mixed team event against the players from Cambodia, Laos, Brunei and Timor-Leste for one gold medal at the SEA Games, he added.

The 32nd SEA Games is scheduled to be held in Cambodia in May this year.
