• Arcadia Olympian Update


    LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Rena Wang of Arcadia lost today in a preliminary
    stage women’s singles badminton match at London’s Wembley Arena, her Olympic
    debut.
    The 20-year-old Arcadia High School graduate lost to Xin Wang — who is
    seeded second — 21-8, 21-6.
    Rena Wang plans on returning to UCLA this fall after taking time off to
    play in tournaments to raise her place in the World Badminton Federation
    rankings to qualify for the Olympics. She is a biology major and hopes to
    attend medical school.
    She is coached by Tony Gunawan of West Covina, who teamed with partner
    Howard Bach of Orange in a 21-15, 21-15 loss to Naoki Kawamae and Shoji Sato of
    Japan today in their last preliminary stage men’s doubles match.
    Bach and Gunawan’s hopes of advancing to the single-elimination
    quarterfinals ended Sunday with a 21-12, 21-14 loss to Kien Keat Koo and Boon
    Heong Tang of Malaysia in a preliminary stage match. Bach and Gunawan lost to
    Jae Sung Jung and Yong Dae Lee of South Korea, 21-14, 21-19 on Saturday.
    The winner of each of the eight four-team groups advanced to the single-
    elimination quarterfinals.
