Badminton News: Loh Kean Yew has a special week of World Championships in Huelva. The badminton he showed on his way to becoming Singapore’s first champion raised interesting questions for fans. Have we just seen the announcement of the sport’s new superstar?
It gives a little taste of what’s to come from Loh in Bali after defeating Kento Momota. This week started with a bang to eliminate the reigning Olympic champion Viktor Axelsen. After losing in the opening game, Loh increased his game to a level that Axelsen bowed with 14-21, 21-9 and 21-6. Loh then proceeded to cut off Wraber, Wangchareon, and Prannoy.
In the semifinals, fans watched Antonsen gain ground against Loh, but it wasn’t enough in the end. Antonsen analyzes that he is one of the fastest players he has ever played in a style he has never seen before and Antonsen played against Lee Chong Wei!
Srikanth Kidambi found a strong form at the right moment and built tournament after tournament confidence. India made history for its country by becoming the first Indian to reach the finals. Especially in the second game he caused problems for Loh, but missed opportunities cost him a lot.
“I just had the feeling that I had a lot of opportunities that I unfortunately couldn’t take. If I had played a little smarter I would have got second place and who knows what could happen in third. Those two or three important points make a huge difference, ”said Srikanth thoughtfully.
To discuss this key demonstration, Loh Kean Yew comments.
“I didn’t really think I’d win at the time. I just focused on being patient.”
Loh Kean Yew found his way to victory, winning the game 21-15 and 22-20. A great success for Loh and Singapore. There Schooling won Olympic gold for the first time with Jonathan Schooling.
Comparisons have been made to his idols Lee Chong Wei and Lin Dan, but the way he won that match really got the badminton community excited.
Loh Kean Yew has been focused all week and hesitant to conduct himself in post-game interviews. Although he was visibly shocked and pleased with the way he looked, his words were deliberately grounded. However, after winning gold, he relaxed.
“Now I can finally tell you that I am really happy. I don’t have to hold back any longer. I am very, very happy and very grateful to all the fans who supported me.
After avoiding social media, Loh was asked how she would handle attention now.
“I don’t think I can answer everyone. I always try, but I can thank you here!”
The long-awaited hug
In sport, fans always expect something special. Loh from Singapore with less than six million inhabitants probably only produces it for badminton. Thrown to the top of the world by the promise, all eyes will now be on him to see how this story goes on.
But first, proper rest and hugs from parents.
“I haven’t really come up with a plan, but I really want to spend time with my family and friends. If I could get back to my parents, I really want to hug them and everyone I love.” the new world champion closes.
