Eain Yow Ng & Sivasangari Subramaniam Celebrate Commonwealth Youth Games Gold

Eain Yow Ng and Sivasangari Subramaniam fulfilled their seedings in the Commonwealth Youth Games by claiming double gold for Malaysia in Squash's debut in the fifth staging of the Games in Samoa.

The pair (pictured above) endorsed their status as favourites by winning the titles without conceding any games over two days at the Tuana'imato Sports Facility in Apia.

Ng, a 17-year-old from Kuala Lumpur, overcame unseeded Indian Velavan Senthilkumar in the semi-finals before getting the better of England's No.2 seed Patrick Rooney 11-8, 12-10, 11-5 in the men's climax.

It was 18-year-old Rooney's third successive straight games defeat by the Malaysian in international junior competitions.

The women's final also brought together the event's top two seeds. Subramaniam, from the Malaysian state of Kedah, defeated New Zealander Eleanor Epke 11-3, 11-5, 12-10.

"I'm very happy because winning a gold medal for the first time in the Commonwealth is a great thing," said 16-year-old ranked 96 in the world.

India's Velavan Senthilkumar took the men's bronze medal after his Pakistani opponent Israr Ahmed was taken ill after the semi-finals - while Sri Lanka struck bronze in the women's event when Mihiliya Methsarani beat fellow non-seed Sadia Gul of Pakistan 11-8, 11-6, 11-

 

Seeds Slip In Commonwealth Youth Games Clashes

While Eain Yow Ng and Sivasangari Subramaniam are still on course to provide double gold for Malaysia in Squash's debut in the Commonwealth Youth Games, a trio of lower seeds failed to claim their predicted places in the semi-finals of the fifth staging of the Games in Samoa.

Ng, a 17-year-old from Kuala Lumpur, brushed aside Scotland's Richard Hollins 11-3, 11-4, 11-5 in today's men's quarter-finals at the Tuana'imato Sports Facility in Apia. In the women's event, Subramaniam despatched Larissa Wiltshire, of Guyana, 11-4, 11-1, 11-4.

But both will meet unexpected opponents as they compete for medals. Ng takes on Velavan Senthilkumar after the unseeded Indian upset Luke Jones, a 3/4 seed from New Zealand, 12-10, 3-11, 11-6, 11-5.

Subramaniam lines up against Mihiliya Methsarani following the unseeded 17-year-old from Sri Lanka's 11-9, 11-8, 11-5 shock defeat of Mari Taylor, a 3/4 seed from England.

Pakistani Sadia Gul also secured an unexpected place in the women's medal play-offs after fighting back from a game down to beat India's 3/4 seed Harshit Jawanda 7-11, 14-12, 11-8, 11-9.

England's medal hopes lie with Patrick Rooney, the No.2 seed who defeated Northern Ireland's Stephen Hearst 11-5, 11-5, 11-3 and will now meet Pakistan's 3/4 seed Israr Ahmed.

Eleanor Epke carries New Zealand's sole medal bid after beating three-time Pacific Games gold medallist Lynette Vai 9-11, 13-11, 11-4, 11-7 to set up a semi-final encounter with Sadia Gul.

Malaysia Set For Double Commonwealth Youth Games Gold

Malaysia is expected to strike double singles gold when Squash makes its debut as one of the nine sports featured in the 5th Commonwealth Youth Games this week in Samoa.
Players from 19 nations will compete in five events - men's and women's singles, and men's, women's and mixed doubles - which will take place at the Tuana'imato Sports Facility in Apia from 5-11 September.

Three-time British Junior Open champion Eain Yow Ng, 17, from Kuala Lumpur is top seed in the men's singles championship - while compatriot Sivasangari Subramaniam, a 16-year-old who won the British Junior U15 Open title last year, is favourite to take gold in the women's singles.

There are further gold predictions for Malaysia in the doubles events where Marcus Wei Jie Sim & Mohd Farez Izwan are top seeds in the men's championship, and Andrea Lee & Eain Yow Ng are favourites for the mixed title - but it is the New Zealand pairing of Abbie Palmer & Eleanor Epke which is seeded to take top honours in the women's doubles event.
