SK also shared the following message from Chan Wan Seong:

BWF World Senior Badminton Championships 2017 – List of Malaysian Medalists :

In MD50+, Sarawakian Ting Wei Ping ( not from BU Dragons group) & Indonesian Bobby Ertanto ( 1982 Indonesia Thomas Cup Partner of Liem Swie King) won Gold Medal.

In MD40+, Kah Kok Cheong & Lum Chee Meng ( not from our BU Dragons group) won Silver Medal.

In MS60+, Chan Wan Seong, and Ong Then Lin ( Ong is under MBA Group) won Bronze Medal.

In MS70+, Foo Lai Loon won Bronze Medal.

In MD70+, defending champions Ching Kon Kong & Loo Ah Hooi won Bronze Medal.

So Malaysia has won a total of 6 medals :
1 Gold, 1 Silver, 4 Bronze .

He added:
“This is the official BWF World Senior Badminton Championships 2017 held once every 2 yrs.
In the 2015 edition, he won a Bronze Medal in MS60+ and in 2017, he won another Bronze Medal despite being 2 yrs older now and facing younger opponents who have migrated to the 60-64 years age category.”

In the 2015 edition, Malaysia won only one Gold in MD70+ through Ching Kon Kong/ Loo Ah Hooi, and one Bronze in MS60+ through Chan Wan Seong.
