Ng sisters win lucky ticket to world meet

KUALA LUMPUR: Ng sisters – Hui Lin and Hui Ern – have shown that a right balance between studies and sports can be rewarding.

The sisters, who left the country to further their studies at the University of Loughborough in Britain in 2011, won the right to represent Malaysia in the women’s doubles event of the World Championships in Guangzhou in August following a spate of withdrawals.

The world No. 26-ranked Hui Lin-Hui Ern were the fifth reserves but received an invitation from the Badminton World Federation (BWF) yesterday after a few pairs above them declined invitation.

Although they left BAM two years ago, the Ng sisters have continued playing badminton and did well to reach the Vietnam Open final last year. The duo train with the national team whenever they are back home.

Malaysia will now have three women’s pairs in the world meet – with the other two being Vivian Hoo-Woon Khe Wei and Goh Liu Ying-Lim Yin Loo.
