Great successes for VICTOR players at the VICTOR Korea Open in Seoul (15.- 20. September 2015)

With Lee Yong Dae and Yoo Yeon Seong two "local heroes" were able to win the Korea Open final against their compatriots Kim Ki Jung and Kim Sa Rang in an exciting match! The Olympic Park where The tournament took place in the Olympic Park, fuly packed with people, screaming and cheering for their VICTOR idols, building up an intense atmosphere. Our registered manager Andreas Sievers himself visited this Super Series Tournament together with our Czech business partners. Andreas was absolutely impressed and overwhelmed not only of the atmosphere, but also by the execution of the tournament and how our brand was presented. It was astonishing how many people wore our brand. The sales stand of VICTOR Korea was a madhouse during the whole event. The audience standing in long queues, desperately waiting to buy the newest VICTOR products. Unfortunately we are not yet at this point in Europe. Badminton is the second most popular sport in Korea - in Europe it is soccer, soccer, soccer.... . 

"For any badminton fan, Korea and especially Seoul are worth a visit!", said Andreas after his return.

Furthermore he campaigned for the ladies singles final ending in a three set win of Koreas Sung Ji Hyun over the top seeded Wang Yihan from China.

Remarkable at this point was the great and fair behaviour of the spectators towards the Chinese opponent Wang Yihan!

This match and the sportsmanship was - without any doubt - the highlight of the final day with an emotional VICTORy of the local hero Sung Ji Hyun.
