Women’s doubles world no. 11 Chow Mei Kuan of Malaysia has announced her retirement from badminton. She is just 26 years of age.

Badminton Association of Malaysia in their official statement said, “Despite efforts to persuade the 26-year-old shuttler to stay, Mei Kuan has reached the decision to retire from the sport.

“Everyone at BAM expresses their gratitude to Mei Kuan for her immense contribution to the national team and wishes her the very best in her future endeavours.”

Chow Mei Kuan’s most notable achievement was at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games where she won the gold medal with Vivian Hoo.

Mei Kuan and Lee Meng Yean also participated in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, however they could not get past the group stage.

Mei Kuan got married last year in December. Some speculate this as the reason behind her decision to retire.
