George Brown badminton put together an impressive performance at this weekend’s Fanshawe Invitational in London.

Ace Zeng led the way, with an incredible outing in the season’s second event. The 5’9” first-year Husky dominated the three-day event, winning a gold medal in both men’s singles and men’s doubles competition. Partner Yang Jin joined him in the men’s doubles win; Zeng defeated St. Lawrence Cornwall’s Henry Andkilde to win the men’s singles competition, and Humber’s Cameron Lai and Darcy Schmidt in men’s doubles. Rya Buth and Mike Ra earned a men’s doubles bronze as well.

“Ace’s play this weekend was phenomenal,” said second-year head coach Will Schram. “He dominated the singles event and made both the team and coaching staff proud. He shows so much promise at such a young age, and leading his doubles team to victory against experienced opponents is a great example of that.”

On the women’s side, fifth-year Husky Yunji Kim paced the way. Kim won a silver medal in both women’s singles and women’s doubles competition to go along with a third-place finish in mixed doubles. Kim was partnered with Ana Hoang in women’s doubles, falling to Humber’s Chloe Rowe and Liz Duong and the finals.

The Huskies will look to carry the momentum into their own tournament, set for December 9-10 at St. James Campus. Follow @GBC_Huskies for updates throughout.
