LEE/YOO DEFEND ASIAN CROWN ON EIGHTH MATCH POINT
Only less than 100 days till the Olympic Games. Will Lee/Yoo be #TheRealDeal?
Yoo has achieved a three-peat at this event, winning with Lee in 2015 and with Shin Baek Choel in 2014. This is the fourth Asian crown for both. Yoo became an Asian Champion for the first time in 2010 with Cho Gun Woo. Lee’s previous two titles were with his former no.1 partners Ko Sung Hyun and Jung Jae Sung.
The Badminton Asia Championships 2016 is the final major tournament counted in the Rio Olympics qualification period. The new BWF rankings to be released on Thursday will be used to decide the final Olympic entry list for the badminton event.
