Commonwealth Games: Malaysia's Chong Wei bows out with third singles gold Commonwealth Games: Malaysia's Chong Wei bows out with third singles gold

India went on to win 3-1 and claim the gold.

"I lost to him in the mixed team event and I wanted to come back in the individual event".

The 35-year-old won back-to-back titles in 2006 and 2010 but was robbed of the chance of a hat-trick when a hamstring injury forced him to pull out of the 2014 Games in Glasgow.

Sunday's victory was by no means guaranteed awarded his first career loss to Srikanth from the mixed team the other day but Chong Wei drew on all his knowledge, and also the skills that retained him as world number 1 for almost 4 years out of 2008. He won his first silver medal in 2008, also the first time a Malaysian had reached the finals in the men's singles event. I think mentally I was very, very strong.

With the victory, Chong Wei signs off from his final outing in the Commonwealth Games with an unbeaten record of 13 men's singles victories in three appearances.

Despite much negotiation from Srikanth, Chong Wei emerged victorious and claimed another gold medal for Malaysia.

"I arrived and the crew function was forgotten by me and simply focused". He had won four Super Series titles - Indonesia, Australia, France and Denmark- past year after winning two gold in the men's team and men's singles in 2016 South Asian Games.

On the 10-year age difference between the two of them, he said: "It's only a number, right". " I neglect my age.

In the apex clash of Men's Singles Badminton contest at the Games, Srikanth comfortably defeated England's Rajiv Ouseph in the semi-final on Saturday and, cruised to the finale of the event.

Chong Wei also joins former worldwide Koo Kien Keat as the most successful Malaysian athletes in the Commonwealth Games with five titles each. Srikanth, who surpassed Denmark's Viktor Axelsen to become world's number 1 just three days ago, opened his account while Lee had five points to his kitty.

The men's singles badminton final will start after the women's singles final between PV Sindhu and Saina Nehwal at around 5 am IST. The 25-year-old, now in Gold Coast for the Commonwealth games, staggering performance in the Super Series titles also helped him with the rating points, making him a strong contender for the top notch.
