China’s Du Yue and Zhou Haodong Shine at the IBERDROLA BWF World Junior Championships 2016

China’s dominance in badminton continues as Du Yue and Zhou Haodong advance to two finals each at this year’s IBERDROLA BWF World Junior Championships 2016 in Bilbao, Spain. With the potential to sweep the entire tournament, Chinese players will compete in all the title-deciding matches tomorrow, showcasing their exceptional skills and talent.

The Battle for Supremacy

Du Yue and Zhou Haodong, who are teammates, find themselves pitted against each other in the all-China showdown for Mixed Doubles supremacy. Du, partnered with He Jiting, secured a comfortable victory against Malaysia’s Chen Tang Jie/Toh Ee Wei in the semi-finals. Zhou, on the other hand, had a tougher challenge against Korean rivals, Park Kyung Hoon/Kim Hye Jeong, but emerged victorious. Both players have their eyes set on the ultimate prize, but only one can emerge as the champion.

A Friendly Rivalry

When asked if they will have a friendly bet about the match, Du jokingly mentioned that it’s usually the boys in the team who engage in such activities. However, Zhou declared that he wants to win the Mixed Doubles title as well, but the Men’s Doubles event is of greater importance to him because they will be facing a foreign team.
