BWF profile

Huang Nanyan (Chinese: 黄楠雁; pinyin: Huáng Nányàn, born April 11, 1977 in Guangxi[2]) is a badminton player from the People's Republic of China.[3]

Career

A women's doubles specialist, Huang won a number of top tier titles in the late 1990s and early 2000s. The first of these came at the 1997 Asian Badminton Championships (now Badminton Asia Championships) with Liu Zhong. The rest came in partnership with Yang Wei and included the World Badminton Grand Prix (2000), and the Dutch (1998), Brunei (1998), South Korea (1999, 2001), Singapore (1999, 2002), and Malaysia (2000, 2001, 2002) Opens. Huang and Yang were silver medalists at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, losing the final to their formidable fellow countrywomen Ge Fei and Gu Jun. Huang and Yang competed together in the 2002 Uber Cup series (women's world team championships) and clinched the deciding point for their country in the final "tie" against South Korea.[4] Huang apparently retired after this victory while Yang went on to further success in partnership with Zhang Jiewen.
