The World Chinese Badminton Federation (WCBF) organized the 2018 Las Vegas World Chinese International Badminton tournament in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. The tournament consisted of Men’s Doubles & Singles, Women’s Doubles & Singles and Mixed Doubles.
A handful of badminton players were lucky enough to participate in this tournament and represent the country. Two of our very own McLarens Shuttlers took part in this International tournament and made the company and the country proud by coming home with gold, silver and bronze medals. Rohan De Silva, Chairman of McLarens Holdings Limited performed beyond expectations and won two gold medals for the Over 65 – Men’s Double and the Combined Age of 130 Category Doubles with his partner Frits Mainaky from Indonesia while securing a bronze medal for the Over 65 – Mixed Double with his partner, Siu Chun Lo from China. Similarly, Upendra Jayawardana won 2 gold medals as well for the 45+ Men’s Singles and Doubles.
McLarens Group has always been an avid supporter of badminton across the country. The company has a collection of professional players while having many enthusiastic employees who play the sport as well. Sponsoring young badminton players and developing the sport itself in Sri Lanka is one of the company’s priorities.
We wish Rohan De Silva and Upendra Jayawardana best of luck in their future badminton endeavors and hope they continue to make themselves, the company and the country proud.
