KUALA LUMPUR: Former international Chan Kwong Beng paid tribute to his new coach Li Mao after winning his first international Open yesterday - a first in his 11-year badminton career.

Yesterday, the 24-year-old Kwong Beng turned the tables on Hong Kong’s Ng Ka Long with a 21-11, 22-20 win in 45 minutes in the men’s singles final of the Ciputra Vietnam International Challenge in Hanoi.

Last year, he had lost to the same player in the first round of the Vietnam Open Grand Prix Gold.

Kwong Beng, who left Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) in January to join Kawasaki Badminton Club, was relieved that his dream to win his first international title has come true.

He said that training under coach Li Mao for the last two months had made all the difference.

“I was looking for a change and that was the reason that I left BAM. And now, I have regained my love for the game again - thanks to Li Mao,” said Kwong Beng, who is currently lying at the 150th spot in the world.

“I am so happy that I finally won my first title although it is a small one. Before this, I never got far in a tournament because of my lack of confidence.”
