Distraught Goh Jin Wei Crashes Out of BWF World Junior Championships

Goh Jin Wei, the defending Women’s Singles champion at the IBERDROLA BWF World Junior Championships, suffered an unfortunate injury that ended her title defense in the round of 16. The Malaysian star was leading comfortably against Natsuki Oie before her injury, but she couldn’t recover and lost the match. Despite the loss, Goh showed determination by continuing to play despite the pain.

Goh Jin Wei expressed her disappointment with the result, acknowledging that she didn’t handle the pressure very well. Having suffered an ankle twist and pulled hamstring during the match, she was unable to maintain her performance and committed a series of errors in the closing exchanges.

While Goh Jin Wei’s journey was cut short, her Japanese rival Natsuki Oie advanced to the quarter-finals, where she will face Gao Fangjie, one of the four Chinese quarter-finalists in the Women’s Singles category. Other players still in contention for the Women’s Singles title are Pornpawee Chochuwong of Thailand, Kim Ga Eun of Korea, and Yeo Jia Min of Singapore.

Toma Junior Popov Shines for Europe

Popov defeated Japan’s Kodai Naraoka in the Men’s Singles and later partnered with Thom Gicquel to secure victory in the Men’s Doubles. He will face No.2 seed Lee Zii Jai of Malaysia in the Men’s Singles quarter-finals.
