PETALING JAYA: A winter storm welcomed the Malaysian team when they arrived in Seoul yesterday for the South Korea Open.

The Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) general manager, Kenny Goh, who accompanied the team, said yesterday that the temperature was -5°C.

“It dips to -10°C at night. The locals are saying that it is one of the coldest winters for them. But our team have settled down here,” he said in a telephone interview.

“The players had a chance to play in the stadium today. They had a good warm-up session for about two hours. They are keeping themselves warm here.”

The Open, which is the second leg of the BWF World Super Series, starts today with the qualifying tournament and Malaysia’s Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif-Hoon Thien How and Chan Chong Ming-Lee Wan Wah will open their campaigns against Singaporeans Terry Yeo Zhao Jiang-Liu Yi and China’s Hong Wei-Shen Ye respectively.
