KUALA LUMPUR: Former internationals Ng Hui Lin and Ng Hui Ern are keen to rejoin the national badminton team after completing their tertiary studies in June.
The return of this women’s doubles pair should be well received by Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) as it will strengthen Malaysia’s depth in the women’s team event for the Asian Games in Incheon in September.
Since leaving the national team to pursue degrees in Economics at the University of Loughborough in Britain in 2011, sisters Hui Lin and Hui Ern have done well to strike a balance between studies and badminton.
The duo are in the final year of their studies and have somehow done well to maintain a good world ranking.
The are now 23rd in the world – just seven spots behind Myanmar SEA Games gold medallist Woon Khe Wei-Vivian Hoo and four ahead of Amelia Anscelly-Soong Fie Cho.
