The badminton competition ended on Tuesday (29 Aug) at the Axiata Arena in Bukit Jalil with Malaysia winning their only gold through 17-year-old Goh Jin Wei in women’s singles competition.

While congratulating Jin Wei for winning the gold, Badminton Association of Malaysia president

Datuk Seri Norza Zakaria expressed his disappoinment over results in men’s singles which failed to achieve their two gold medal target in the Games.

Malaysia, he said, would have done better if not for the disappointing performance from players like Iskandar Zulkarnain Zainuddin.

“I congratulate Jin Wei for winning the gold and also Soniia Cheah for reaching the final. However, our men’s singles is still a disappointment. There is also this tendency of our players not able to finish off matches.

Malaysia finished the badminton competition with one gold, four silvers and two bronze medals compared to the two gold medals, four silvers and two bronze in Singapore two years ago.
