She’s done it again! After her victory at the 2017 Deaflympics, Boon Wei Ying has again made the country proud with her recent win at the World Deaf Badminton Championships.
The Melaka native earned a bronze medal after her winning streak at the court in Taiwan on Sunday. Wei Ying defeated Switzerland’s Sophie Bula (21-6, 21-6), India’s Jerlin Jayaratchagan (21-19, 21-15) and Taiwan’s Tu Wen Hsuan (21-15, 21-6).
Unfortunately, when she got to the semi-finals, she was defeated by Taiwan’s Shen Yan-Ru, losing the match with the score (22-20, 21-16). Although she didn’t win gold, Wei Ying considers it as progress as it marks her second best performance in her career, thus far.
The 24-year old previously won a silver medal for the mixed doubles category in 2017. Together with Francis Tan Heng Bock, they became the first Malaysian pair to win a medal at the Deaflympics.
Congratulations, Wei Ying! Keep up the hard work. You have a promising future ahead of you!
