    Malaysian woman badminton star being honoured

    SYLVIA NG

    AGE: 61

    Ng made history at the 1978 Commonwealth games in Edmonton, Canada, by becoming the first Asian woman to win the badminton singles gold, as well as the first Malaysian female athlete bag a gold in the history of the Games. She was also the only player to win a gold medal for the country at the 1975 SEA Games. She was honoured as Sportswoman of the Year twice, in 1975 and 1978, and won the national badminton champion title five times before she retired in 1980.

    In 2004, Ng was inducted into the Olympic Council of Malaysia Hall of Fame.
