    Ong Zi Jian is hardly local. He is a Malaysian who just came representing Singapore for this particular tournament. The only local is Chen Rhui Sheng.

    wow uncle loh, you can ever source this on Philippine newspaper? I'm amazed :)

    Only recently when she won the Cheers Age Group WS title that I got to know more about LXY from the posts of other BC members:

    http://www.badmintonforum.com/vb/showthread.php?t=73848&page=6

    LXY came from China a few years ago. She may be studying here but she is not a member of our National Team.

    I'm sure the SBA would love to have a foreign talent like LXY to be trained as a national player since she is still relatively young and has got used to our local condidtions, but there are other considerations to take into account which must be agreeable to LXY's parents and the SBA. :D

    Maybe other senior BC members here would be able to provide more details. ;)

    Shuttler Thng Ting Ting beats Thai top seed to win U-19 Singles final

    http://redsports.sg/2009/12/28/thng-ting-ting-badminton/

    Yio Chu Kang Stadium, Sunday, December 20, 2009 – Singapore shuttler Thng Ting Ting swept aside top seed, Nittayaporn Nipatsant, from Thailand with a 2-0 (21-12, 21-19) victory in the Li-Ning Singapore Youth International badminton Under-19 Girls Singles final.

    Ting Ting took the first set easily but admitted that the second set “was a struggle”. Her Thai opponent rallied in the second set, coming back from 15-9 to reduce the lead to just one point at 19-18. Nonetheless, Ting Ting finished off her opponent 21-12, 21-19 in 35 minutes.
    “I am very happy to win and my opponent’s performance wasn’t fantastic today,” Ting Ting said. “My strategy was to keep the shuttle in at the start.”

    I was quite surprised to see a TV crew during the finals. Wonder if the finals would be shown on cable tv.
