ALOR SETAR, Oct 26   -- Malaysia's junior badminton squad lost 0-3 to China in the final of the World Junior Badminton Championship at Sultan Abdul Halim Indoor Stadium here Monday.

The mixed double pair of Ow You Han-Ng Hui Ern lost 5-21,19-21 to Lu Kai-Boa Yixin while first single player Muhammad Syawal Mohd Ismail lost 15-21,23-25 to Tian Houwei.

China's domination was complete when Lu Kai-Liu-Peixuan beat Ow Yao Han-Chooi Kang Ming in three sets, 21-18,18-21 and 21-17.

With the win, China defended the title it won in Pune, India last year.

Head coach Sun Chenghua said becoming runners-up was quite an achievement although he had hoped that Malaysia would emerge champion.

"I am satisfied with their achievement. There are several events left and I am confident that they will rise to the occasion," he said.

Malaysia is banking on Muhammad Syawal and Iskandar Zulkarnain to reach the single semi-finals.
