The Thai pair proved no match to the superior teamwork and fast game of the Chinese duo who successfully defended their title following a 21-8 21-12 win.

 

Despite the loss, Dechapol and Sapsiree still made a history as the first Thai mixed doubles team to reach the final in the tournament.

 

Thailand, for the first time, had medallists in three categories in the same year. Former champion Ratchanok Intanon and Kantaphon Wangcharoen won the bronze medals in the women’s and men’s singles respectively by reaching the semi-finals.
