This thread is for the news from Taiwanese media about covid-19 which involved Tai Tzu Ying. As you known, after returning from UK last week, Tai Tzu Ying is now on home quarantines for 14 days. Hope everything will be ok. Stay health Ying, and stay health Ying’s fans!
A few days ago, IOC (International Olympic Committee) finally decided to postpone the Tokyo Olympic 2020 due to Covid-19 outbreak (originally the start date was on July 24th 2020).
I think this is the best for everyone, because in this kind of situation, we really can do nothing about that. Health and safety are the priorities. So I completely agree with this decision to postpone the Olympic.
PETALING JAYA: Reigning All-England women’s singles champion Tai Tzu-ying has been floored by a teenager. The shuttler is in quarantine after a young team member was tested positive for Covid-19, sparking concerns at all other participating teams.
The All-England that ended on March 11 at Arena Biringham went on as scheduled, despite calls by players for the Badminton World Federation (BWF) to have it postponed.
The Badminton World Federation (BWF) hailed Taiwan’s Tai Tzu-ying after her win at the All England Open Badminton Championships with a video montage on Facebook as the shuttler began 14 days of self-quarantine on her return to Taiwan.
The BWF Facebook group released the video on Friday, saying: “She is terrific, she is tenacious, she is the queen. All hail Queen Tai,” lauding her third All England title after her 21-19, 21-15 victory over top seed and then-world No. 1 Chen Yufei of China in in Birmingham on Sunday.
Tai on Wednesday posted a photograph of herself onboard an EVA Airways flight to Taiwan wearing a mask and saying how nice it was to return to the place she is familiar with.
At the All England Open Badminton Championship 2020, Tai Tzu Ying began her campaign against the younger players in the first three rounds. Her performance is getting better each rounds. But the real challenge for her is in the semifinal. In the semifinal, she plays against the 2015 All England Champion, Carolina Marin.
Unlike in the semifinal of 2015 All England (their only meeting at this championship), this time it is Tai Tzu Ying who get better of her opponent, Carolina Marin. This revenge feels very special not just because she will through to the final. But, it means she will contest at the All England finals for 4th consecutive years, emulating one of women’s singles legend from China, Ye Zhao Ying.
Danish shuttler Hans-Kristian Vittinghus who had drawn the badminton world’s attention to exposure risks to top players and spectators at the All England Championships last week prompting suspension of tournaments, on Friday pointed to another glum piece of news, to show that the Birmingham meet might’ve posed a grave risk.
While officials did not confirm the athlete or the sport, the European itinerary in a Taiwanese news update, exactly matched the description of a suspected teenaged sparring partner of the Chinese Taipei squad that played at All England. This included finalists Tai Tzu Ying and Chou Tien Chen.
