Ambassador Tien Chung-Kwang attends the Yonex Sunrise India Open 2014 to cheer on badminton players from Taiwan
The qualifying rounds were played on April 1, before the main tournament began on April 2. Ambassador Tien went to the tournament on April 3, accompanied by his colleagues from Taipei Economic and Cultural Center in India, and by friends from Taiwan currently in New Delhi, and everyone cheered on the Taiwan delegates. Despite a valiant effort, the mixed double team from Chinese Taipei, Hung-Ling Chen and Wen-Hsing Cheng, was defeated by the world no.1 mixed double team from China. But the team will return to India in May to take part in the finals of the Badminton World Federation’s Thomas Cup and Uber Cup.
