Milngavie’s Imogen Bankier helps Scotland win again in Malaysia

Milngavie’s Imogen Bankier helped Scotland make it two wins in a row at the Sudirman Cup in Kuala Lumpur this week.

Bankier and fellow mixed doubles world silver medalist Robert Blair continued in their winning ways in the World Mixed Team Championships, beating the USA 4-1 to replicate their winning score-line over Russia on Sunday and take a commanding lead in Group 2A.

On Sunday the pair won their opening mixed doubles matches 21-13 21-6 against Ho Halim Haryanto and Jamie Subandhi.

Meanwhile Scotland team mate Kieran Merrilees kept up his good form by toppling Howard Shu 21-16 21-11 in the men’s singles.

It then fell to Kirsty Gilmour to again secure a winning lead when she defeated Iris Wang 21-9 21-15.
