KUALA LUMPUR: Olympic champions Markis Kido-Hendra Setiawan of Indonesia showed that they are back at their best by winning the Asian Badminton Championships (ABC) men’s doubles title in Suwon, South Korea, yesterday.

The world No. 1 and top seeds took 36 minutes to beat South Koreans Ko Sung-hyun-Yoo Yeon-seong 21-18, 26-24 in the final to claim their first title this year.

Markis and Hendra had skipped the tournaments in Europe — All-England and Swiss Open — in March due to the former’s poor condition following a knee injury.

The duo’s return to form is timely as they gear up for the defence of the World Championships in Hyderabad from Aug 10-16.

In the men’s singles, Bao Chunlai fended off a stiff challenge from world junior champion and compatriot Chen Long before prevailing with a 16-21, 21-10, 21-16 win in 55 minutes.

It was Chunlai’s second title after the German Open in March and his success yesterday will certainly help his cause to improve on his world ranking, which is currently at No. 12.
