Badminton Elite Enjoy Sights Of Dubai Ahead Of Tough Competition

As the world’s badminton elite descended on Dubai this week ahead of the season-ending Dubai World Superseries Finals which kicked off today, some of the players took some time out from training to take in the city sights.

Korea’s World champion men’s doubles pair of Lee Yong Dae and Yoo Yeon Seong met some new fans at Ski Dubai on Sunday, enjoying the opportunity to interact with penguins, before testing out the bobsled run.

Although initially a little wary, Lee said “It’s the first time I’ve ever touched a penguin, I’m really enjoying this experience!”

China’s Zhao Yunlei and Fu Haifeng enjoyed some Arabic hospitality at Madinat Jumeirah, riding a traditional abra before tasting Arabic coffee and dates, and taking in the views of the Burj Al Arab.

And last year’s Dubai World Superseries Finals women’s singles winner Tai Tzu Ying of Chinese Taipei took to the skies in a Seawings Tour. Tzu Ying loved her bird’s eye view of Dubai, saying “I would recommend this to everyone, it was fantastic!”

Action in the Dubai World Superseries Finals commenced today, and will continue until Sunday December 13.

Only the eight top-ranked players from the BWF Destination Dubai Rankings in men’s and women’s singles, men’s and women’s doubles and mixed doubles have earned a place in this week’s prestigious tournament, which sees them compete for a share of a US$1million prize pool. To qualify for Dubai the players had to amass points from 12 MetLife BWF World Superseries Tournaments held around the world throughout the year.
