Japanese take gold in Guam

08.03.2020 - Vienna, Austria

Hosts of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, Japan dominated the women-only one-star World Tour event in Guam with teams from the Asian nation taking gold and bronze medals in the tournament.

The victorious duo of 26-year-old Chiyo Suzuki and 25-year-old Yurika Sakaguchi completed a perfect week in Guam by securing its fifth and last win, a 2-0 (21-16, 21-12) triumph over Americans Kimberly Hildreth and Sarah Schermerhorn in the gold medal match.

It was the second World Tour gold medal for the team, which had also won a one-star tournament in Budapest, Hungary, last August. The title was special for Suzuki, who has now nine international medals- three golds, one silver and five bronze -, the most for any Japanese player to ever compete at the World Tour.

The bronze medal match in Guam also featured a duel between Japan and the USA with Suzuka Hashimoto and Ayumi Kusano downing 17-year-olds Megan Kraft and Delaynie Maple in straight sets (21-15, 21-12) to secure their podium spot.

The World Tour continues this week with the first four-star event of the season, a men-only tournament in Doha, Qatar, starting on Monday.
