Shuttlers Enjoy International Wins

Croatia Valamar Junior Open, Croatia Open, Italian International and Indonesia Open

June proved to be a thrilling month for past and present shuttlers as they flew the Singapore flag high on international stages.

From 16 to 19 June 2022, 200 young talents from as many as 35 countries went all out to put up a smashing fight for titles at the Croatia Valamar Junior Open. Among them were Nge Joo Jie (Diploma in Business, Year 2) and Johan Prajogo (Diploma in Business Studies, Year 2), who eventually won the Under-19 Boys’ Doubles. After battling an intense semi-finals against their Japanese opponents, they booked a spot in the finals after an energy-sapping 46-minute game where the two teams breathed down each other’s neck. However, Joo Jie and Johan had a comfortable final game against the finalists from Poland on the same day, winning them 21-14, 21-10 in just 26 minutes to stand high on the winners’ podium

Donovon Willard Wee (Diploma in Business Studies, Year 3) and alumnus Howin Wong Jia Hao also had a fruitful outing at the Croatia Open held from 20 to 23 June. In the finals, Donovon and Howin were up against the same opponents from Hong Kong whom they lost to at the Lithuania International 2022. Undeterred by the previous results, the doubles team was determined to stamp their names in Croatia. After losing their first set 23-25, they came out all guns blazing to win the next two sets 21-11, 21-18 to capture the Men’s Doubles title.

Also, alumna Crystal Wong Jia Ying secured a podium finish at the Italian International 2022 which took place from 2 to 5 June. Her chemistry with her double partner Jin Yujia worked well as they finished in second place for Women’s Doubles at the tournament. The pair lost in the finals 17-21, 12-21 against Hsu Ya Ching and Lin Wan Ching from Hong Kong.
