A Short Tribute to the Legend

Jung Jae Sung, a well-respected player in the Men Doubles scene. He started playing badminton at the age of 9, made the cut for South Korea’s national team at the age of 18 but it was till 2006 when his professional career took off together with Lee Yong Dae. Together they formed one of the most feared after men doubles pairs in the world and reaching a career high of World Number 1 in 2009. Two All-England titles, Olympic Bronze and multiple BWF Superseries title throughout the years are the testaments of their successful partnership.

His passing is a loss to the badminton fraternity as he will be bringing along his experience and knowledge with him. Nonetheless, we are proud of what he has given to us throughout the years – his energy, showmanship, skills and many more. With that, thank you and you will surely be missed by everyone especially your family, friends and fans.

Once again, we would like to extend our condolences to his family.
