Denmark and China enjoy badminton glory

  • Intro:

    Denmark's Tine Baun wins on her 'last adventure' in the women's singles at the All England Open in Birmingham, England, on Sunday (March 10th) with China dominating the other finals.


    There was an interesting, acrobatic precursor to the badminton event at the All England Open in Birmingham, England, as Denmark's Tine Braun won in the women's singles

    The 33-year-old from Denmark became the oldest winner of the All England women's title by beating 18-year-old Intanon Ratchanok 21-14, 16-21, 21-10.

    The match was a closely contested affair with Thailand's Ratchanok looking to be a future contender for the title.

    It was Braun though, who planted her lips on the trophy.

    China continued their dominance elsewhere in the tournament.

    In the women's doubles, Xiaoli Wang and Yang Yu emerged victorious, whilst Xiaolong Liu and Zihan Qiu, won in the men's doubles.

    In the men's singles, Long Chen beat Chong Wei Lee of Malaysia 21-17, 21-18.

    Chen was a bronze medallist at the London 2012 Olympics and clearly enjoyed another podium moment in England.
