One highlight on day two was the appearance of former BWF World Champion and BWF World Junior Champion, Shin Baek Cheol with partner Lee Sang Ho (KOR). Having earned these titles (amongst others) in 2014 (Denmark) and 2007 (Auckland, New Zealand) respectively, Shin still has the magic touch on court. The young New Zealand pair who had the opportunity to play against them today took their chances and enjoyed the once in a lifetime experience.
