Men’s doubles falter in semis too

IT was close but yet so far for men’s doubles pair Ng Eain Yow-Ivan Yuen.

The squash players fell short in their bid to reach the men’s doubles final when they were shown the exit by top seeds James Wilstrop-Declan James of England.

Eain Yow-Ivan, the joint fifth seeds, suffered a 5-11, 11-5, 11-8 defeat to Wilstrop-James in the last four.

Despite taking a 7-4 lead in the third game, Eain Yow-Ivan allowed Wilstrop-James to come out of jail to confirm England the gold.

Their teammates Adrian Waller-Daryl Selby had earlier booked their place in the final after beating Sottish pair Greg Lobban-Rory Stewart 11-8, 8-11, 11-6.

Eain Yow-Ivan will play Lobban-Stewart in the bronze medal playoff today.
