Alex Chao (Badminton)

Chao was as impressive as anyone at the Huskies dominant run at the Centennial Invitational this weekend, where George Brown went a perfect five-for-five, winning a gold medal in each discipline. The 5’8” Ottawa native took home a pair of gold medals in doubles play, one in men’s play with partner Yang Jin and another in mixed play with fellow athlete of the week Yunji Kim. Chao will look to carry the momentum into the Regional Championship at Centennial in a couple of weeks.

Yunji Kim (Badminton)

OCAA All-Star Yunji Kim continued what has been a standout season on Saturday, winning a pair of gold medals at the Centennial Invitational. Kim won a mixed doubles title with partner Chao, as well as a women’s singles title via a title win over fellow Husky Anh Hoang. The Lome native has now earned a semi-final birth in each of the past eight draws that she has been entered in, and carried the momentum from a great performance at George Brown’s own Kim Ng Open.
