The badminton women’s team made new history at the Hangzhou Asian Games. They won the gold medal by defeating China in the team event. China is the strongest country in history, having won the women’s team event 10 times in the Asian Games. The fact that it was the first Asian Games gold medal in 29 years was also surprising, and it also overwhelmed China in terms of the content of the game.

As expected, Ahn Se-young was ranked No. 1 in the women’s singles world rankings. Powerful smashing. Stable return. Hairpins and pushes that hit the opponent’s empty spot. Everything was perfect.
China’s Chen Yufei tried to resist, but Ahn Se-young completely won 2-0. It was a refreshing reversal of the complete loss at the Jakarta Games five years ago.
