Kai Chen gets his triple crown

Dear readers

It has been a great day for the Teoh family. KC made Under 17s WA history winning a historic triple crown.

As far as I know in recent history Eddie Hung won a triple corwn for the Under 19s. Xiang won a triple crown for the Under 15s.

Now we have a triple crown for the Under 17s. I have seen KC grow as a player through the years with support from his family especially his parents.

He was expected to get a triple crown for the Under 15s but got injured. He never gave up in his dream and thanks to  his principle coach, Yuli, his dream has been achieved.

Of course he managed the triple with  Bella winning the XD and Milian winning the boys double.

Congrats also should go to Jason and Sunyee winning their first national silver trophy,

WA youth badminton is getting stronger thanks to all the support of the parents and BAWA.

That's the end of the tournament for the players. Many of the team can play for at least 2 more years in the Under 17s.

Kai Chen makes Wa u17 history

- Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone

3rd day of individuals and WA is going well.

Dear readers

Today has been a good day for WA.

In the boys singles, KC progresses to the finals to play against Charlie Jap. He beat Janson Trinh in 3 sets after losing the first set. Great comeback. Sunyee tried his best but could not find a spot in the finals losing to Charlie Jap in 2 sets.

In the Girls singles, there was an upset with Bella losing in 3 sets to Sasha Lim. I am told Bella has blisters the size of doughnuts. Poor girl. Never mind, she still has the mixed doubles.

In the mixed, KC and Bella will meet Janson Trinh and Celeste Lee. Hopefully Bella's feet will be okay.

In the boys doubles, WA is making history with 2 teams competing for gold and silver, Jason and Sun Yee will be playing Milain and KC. I do not know how the parents are going to cheer for their children in court as all the parents are quite close. Good luck. This is probably the first time in the Under 17s tournament or any national tournament where there are 2 WA teams fighting for gold and silver. Congrats to Coach Yuli and assistant YQ for training such a strong WA team. And the 4 boys are from Yuli's An Yu Badminton Academy.

In the girls doubles, Bella again ran into bad luck and not making the finals. Sasha and her lost to V Hee and Vega in 2 sets.

In the girls singles plate, Alicia has clinched the plate against A Alexander. Good work young Alicia.

 In the mixed plate, Ryan and Daphne could not progressed to the finals losing to eventual winners A Ang and J Zhu.

In the girls doubles plate Katrina and Daphne did us proud winning in 3 sets against L Phan and C Sak. Their parents must be so proud of them.

Infact all the player's parents should be proud of what their child have achieved.

Lets see if more history can be made tomorrow.
