  • Intro:

    Two days after routing five-time defending champions China 3-0 in the semi-finals, Japan made badminton history on Sunday by defeating Malaysia 3-2 to lift the Thomas Cup for the first time.


    SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) Takuma Ueda, Japan:

    "This was a crucial game, it is the Thomas Cup final. I was really honoured to represent Japan as the third singles player. I could feel the tension but I just wanted to try my best in the game. In the end I was able to win the title for my team. I am really happy about it."

    "Badminton is not a major sport in Japan right now. I hope this victory can give some good impressions of badminton to young people in Japan."
