KUALA LUMPUR: Mixed doubles shuttler Goh Liu Ying will stick to just one event after suffering a hand injury at the recent World Championships in Guangzhou.
She will stick with Chan Peng Soon in the mixed doubles and forego her partnership with Lim Yin Loo in the women’s doubles.
“This is the best decision. This will surely make Peng Soon and coach Jeremy (Gan) happy,” said Liu Ying, who added that she had to do some soul searching after the world meet.
The Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) wanted Liu Ying to focus on only one event earlier this year but Liu Ying felt that she could cope with juggling between the two events.
Prior to the injury, she did exceptionally well in both events.
