    Well, the KBA website says it's in Incheon at Samsan World Gym. There is a team event followed by individual, according to the IBF site. There could well be an article about it in October on Badzine International (in English, of course). Stay tuned.

    IBF rules say that if you turn 19 during the calendar year, you're too old(see Rule 8.1 here). Lee just turned 18 this month. No official word yet on whether he'll be playing. The tournament coincides with the Denmark Open and Dutch Opens. Lee played in the Asian Juniors but that didn't coincide with any senior tournaments. Who knows?

    Other than Lee Youn Dae. who else do u think will represent Korea. How about China? I am wondering whether they will send Wang Lin to the World Junior.

    I think China will be tough to beat. They are a class above even at junior level.

    I think this time China will be better prepared. Lydia Lost to Wang Yi han in the final at the Asia Junior Final. Watched the game on TV, Lydia game lack of consistency and need more exposure to mature.

    In the mixed team event, I hope Malaysian Junior team are able to put up a good showing. Other notable team should be China, Korea. Japan and Indonesia.

    What about the European Teams?

    Mike, what's the reason for posting the link to SBS here? There is no badminton on that schedule and no scheduleis out yet for the weeks of the World Juniors. If there is an article on that website dealing with SBS's plans to air the tournament, I can't find it. Have you heard they will cover it? Do you think TVAnts will be able to pick it up this time?

    Good chance for Malaysia to reach semis in mixed team event

    PETALING JAYA: Malaysia, with Mohd Arif Abdul Latif at the helm, have a good chance to go one step better and reach the semi-finals of the mixed team event in the World Junior Badminton Championships, which will be held in Incheon, South Korea, from Nov 2-11.
    In the team draw released by the Badminton World Federation (BWF) on Friday, Malaysia are the joint third-fourth seeds together with Indonesia. The top two seeds are defending champions South Korea and China.
    Malaysia are in Group B with Taiwan, Ukraine, the Philippines, Denmark (fifth-eighth seeds), Japan, Canada and South Africa.
    The eight-team Group B have been divided into two sub groups. The winners, most likely Malaysia and Denmark, are expected to square off for a place in the semi-finals.
    At the last World Juniors in Vancouver two years ago, Malaysia finished fifth in the mixed team competition and Hoon Thien How-Tan Boon Heong won the boys’ doubles title for the country for the first time since 1998.
    Besides Arif, Malaysia will be represented by seven other boys – Lim Fang Yang, Lok Chong Chieh, Teo Kok Siang, Vountus Indra Mawan, Lim Khim Wah, Mak Hee Chun and Tan Wee Kiong. There are five girls in the team – Lydia Cheah, Tee Jing Yi, Stephanie Shalini, Vivien Khoo and Woon Khe Wei.
    In the Asian Juniors in July, the Malaysian shuttlers stole the show with Lydia, Arif-Vountus and Wee Kiong-Khe Wei emerging as the runners-up in the girls' singles, boys’ doubles and mixed doubles respectively.
    l THE GROUPINGS
    A1: South Korea, Australia, Czech Republic, Botswana.
    A2: Germany, India, Vietnam, Macau.
    B1: Malaysia, Taiwan, Ukraine, Philippines.
    B2: Denmark, Japan, Canada, South Africa.
    C1: Indonesia, Hong Kong, Holland, Mongolia.
    C2: England, Singapore, Bulgaria, Sri Lanka.
    D1: China, United States, Turkey, Egypt. D2: Thailand, New Zealand, Russia, Pakistan.

    Indonesia team to WJC 2006

    Boys: Tommy Sugiarto, Bandar Sigit Pamungkas, Subakti, Fernando Kurniawan, Vicky Indra Okvana (Pelatnas), Nugroho Andi Saputro, Wisnu Haryo Putro, Dhani Bawa, Afiat Yuriswirawan (Djarum)

    Girls: Pia Zebadiah, Aprilia Yuswandari, Nitya Krishinda, Nadya Melati, Lili Siswanti, Richi Puspita Dili (Pelatnas), Sylvinna Kurniawan (Djarum)

    looked like PBSI tried to send the best team by fielded Tommy, Nitya/Nadya who didn't play in AJBC & Milo.
    This time Bellaetrix wasn't selected in team and 4th girl's single is blank. Another player who didn't selected is D. Hayom Rumbaka (runner up Milo)



    Other team will be sent to U-16 Qualification in Brunei

    Boys : Engga Setiawan, Effert Sukamta, Kevin Alexander, Angga Pratama
    Girls : Febby Angguni, Della Destiara Haris, I Made Claudia Ayu Wijaya

    as I know in some local tournament in this category, the winner are
    BS : Engga, BD : Kevin/Angga, GS : Ana Rovita, GD : Della/Ayu
    Ana Rovita wasn't selected and her place was fielded by Febby Angguni (Pelatnas) who more experience and better.

    Indeed, with Tommy and Bandar's presence in the boy's singles, the semi-final target set by PBSI should be manageable.

    Similarly, the girl's team event look quite strong with Pia, Aprilia and Sylvinna. They are arguably the best girl's singles we have. I didn't expect Nitya/Nadya still qualify for the Junior events as I thought they are already 20-21 yo. Lili/Richi are also a reasonable choice. Aren't they the MILO Junior champion?

    needed to flash back remember past junior tournaments.
    I believe Nitya still in junior age, not sure with Nadya.

    Last year she paired with Polii in AJBC and paired with Yulianti in Milo, Nadya already in Pelatnas :confused: .
    I remembered and watched Jakarta Open 2003 U-16, Nitya paired with Pia won GD while Sylvinna in GS, Wisnu HP beat Tommy in BS and Tommy with another player won BD. Pia tried play in U-19, she wa ended by Wiwis Meyliana from Djarum.
    I predict Nitya born in 1988.

    You are correct. Nitya Krishinda was born in 1988, same with Tommy.
    Nitya/Nadya are fast turning into a formidable WD pair...definitely a top 20 pair.

    Badminton: Seedings a joke at World Junior meet
    30 Oct 2006
    K.M. Boopathy


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    THE Badminton World Federation’s (BWF) seedings for theWorld Junior Championships has become a farce.

    The top seeds in the boys’ doubles are Malaysia’s No 3 pair of Mak Hee Chun-Lim Khim Wah while South Korea’s Asian junior champions Lee Yong Dae-Cho Gun Woo have been seeded third.
    But even more shocking is that Mongolia’s Bakhturel Ochirpurev-Enkhbat Olonbayar, unheard of in the world of badminton, are the second seeds.

    Which is why the BWF must introduce a world ranking for the junior shuttlers as soon as possible.

    Since there isn’t a separate junior ranking available, the BWF had to base the seedings on the senior world ranking and this saw most of the favourites not given top billing.

    Yong Dae, who is ranked World No 3 with Jung Jae Sung, has never played in a senior event with Gun Woo and this has probably resulted in them being left out as the top seeds.

    In the boys’ singles, Asian junior champion Kenichi Tago of Japan was not even seeded. Indonesia’s Tommy Sugiarto was seeded No 1.

    China’s Wang Yihan, who beat World No 2 Xie Xingfang, to win the World Cup on Saturday, was only seeded third in the girls’ singles while Malaysian Lydia Cheah, who finished runner-up to Yihan in the Asian Juniors, was unseeded.

    The BWF, however, has agreed to a redraw today after requests from their affiliates but it remains to be seen how the international body is going to address the problem.

    The Asian and European Junior Championships are regarded as equal tournaments and both continental federations — Badminton Asia Confederation and European Badminton Union — would want their respective champions to be featured in the seedings.

    The redraw will definitely make several nations unhappy especially Indonesia and India if Tommy and Saina Nehwal, the girls’ singles top seed, are relegated to lower seedings.

    Little can be achieved in solving the matter in Incheon but the BWF can make a proactive move by establishing a world ranking list for the juniors.
