    But according to the Star (of Malaysia), it is the reverse. The top-seeds were beaten. Confusing indeed! :confused:

    I was in the stadium, but I was sleeping on my seat during most of the women's doubles. It was very boring, plus I was tired from cheering for CW Lee. I think they weren't playing seriously. I am 100% sure Yang/Zhang won it. I don't know how they could have messed up the result.

    The IBF website said "The top seeds toppled compatriots Yang Wei and Zhang Jiewen – although confusion arose when the runners-up were pictured with the winner’s cheque on the podium afterwards"

    So,the champion is exactly GAO/HUANG!

    But why yang/zang lift the winner’s cheque?only joking? :confused:

    Yang/Zhang lifted the winners cheque because they won!!! Don't know why IBF website made that mistake, but Gao/Huang were never in the game (I think Gao was too tired after the mixed doubles). Yang/Zhang won convincingly that day.
