VIDEO: Peng Soon-Liu Ying stun crowd with racquet change during rally

Chan Peng Soon and Goh Liu Ying are predominantly one of the best mixed doubles pair in the national badminton arena.

The two share great chemistry, cooperation and not to mention, fantastic game play. The two were ranked as high as number three in the BWF world ranking but due to an injury, Liu Ying was inactive thus their ranking slid down since then.

However, rankings apart, the pair have contributed excellent display of performance in the international tournaments. In the ongoing SEA Games in Singapore, the Malaysian duo had defeatedSingapore’s Vanessa Neo and Danny Bawa Chrisnanta during the quarter finals.

They both won the match 21-18 and 21-16 ultimately, but what amazed the crowd was the fact they had the time to exchange their rackets in the middle of the rally. Some sources claimed that Peng Soon might have had problems with the racket string so he quickly initiated the change before the shuttecock came flying towards him. It was more jaw-dropping when they won the rally,even after exchanging their rackets. This was a first in the badminton sports scene.

Here is the clip:

If you look closely around 0.20s, they exchanged their rackets rather quickly.

Amazing and flawless. Their skills are undeniable.
