PETALING JAYA: The smile is back on midfielder Low Hang Yee’s face after winning his first career title.

Hang Yee and her partner Chia Weijie, who are ranked 279th in the world, continued to show their prowess against top-ranked Emil Lauritzen-Mads Vestergaard of Denmark as they scored a 19-21, 22-20, 23-21 victory. to lift the men’s doubles title at the Ukrainian Open in Kiev on Sunday.

It was his second win against the World No. 104. They also beat the Danes in the second round of last week’s Swedish Open before losing to Danny Bawa Chrisnanta-Andy Kwek Jun Liang of Singapore in the final.

It was special for Hang Yee as it was his first title since he joined the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) when he was 19 years old.

“Finally, I can taste my first title. Our opponents were leading most of the time, but we never gave up. Weijie and I encourage each other to do our best for victory,” said 24-year-old Hang Yee.

“I was only paired with Weijie (22 years old) about four months ago. It’s a good start for us.

“I didn’t come through the Bukit Jalil Sports School, but I was promoted from the state (Selangor).

“The last few years with the national team have been a learning season. I will continue to improve from here.”

With his former partner Ng Eng Cheong, the duo have become runners-up twice at the Lao International and Malaysia International, both in 2019.

“We will look forward to future tournaments with more confidence,” added Hang Yee, who trains with coach Flandi Limpele.
