MA Thet Htar Thuzar from
Myanmar won the first prize in
Egypt International Series 2018,
organized by Egypt, in Cairo
from 25 to 28 October.
The Egypt International Badminton Championship for 2018 was officially sponsored by Emirates NBD.
Egypt hosted Egypt International Series 2018. Thet Htar Thuzar waited for the opponent finalist from Belarus to play a decisive event for championship medal. Her compatriot Belarusian compatriot sustained knee injury in the women’s doubles event before playing the final match.
The Belarusian compatriot failed to play the final match of women’s singles because of her knee injury and so she had to give a walkover to her opponent Thet Htar Thuzar. For that reason Thet Htar Thuzar from Myanmar secured the first prize. But, it was sure for 90 per cent to become champion since Thet Htar Thuzar won over the world champion Malaysian player with 2-0 in the semifinal event.
Myanmar secured the first prize, Belarus the second prize and Malaysian and Switzerland joint third-place prize.
