China's Chen Jin wins Badminton Asia Championships, almost in London Olympics

Qingdao (China), Sun, 22 Apr 2012 ANI

Qingdao (China), April 22 (Xinhua-ANI): Chinese shuttler Chen Jin was only one step away from qualifying for the London Olympic Games after winning men's singles title at the 2012 Badminton Asia Championships here on Sunday.

Chen cruised past teammate Du Pengyu 21-12, 21-18 in the final to clinch his third consecutive title in recent three tournaments.

Victories in Switzerland, Australia and Asia Championships give Chen's Olympic hopes a big boost as his close rival, Denmark's Peter Gade, suffered a surprise quarterfinal defeat at the European Championships.

Chen is currently ranked fifth in the world, but based on points collected during the Olympic period he is at No. 4, ahead of Gade. Chen needs to secure the fourth place until the end of April to ensure his Olympic ticket.

Meanwhile, Chinese women shuttlers Tian Qing/Zhao Yunlei beat their teammates to clinch the doubles gold at the Asian Badminton Championships here on Sunday.

The first set of the final was lopsided as the world No.2 Tian/Zhao defeated Bao Yixin/Zhong Qianxin 21-14.

The world No. 15 Bao/Zhong kept the score very close through half time of the second set, but Tian/Zhao pulled away and triumphed with 21-15.

"We didn't change our tactics with determined purpose while lagging behind, and I was anxious on the court," said Bao Yixin.

"Although they are younger than us, they are very powerful and it is difficult for us to win," Tian Qing said. (ANI)
