BWF profile

Jiang Yanjiao (simplified Chinese: 蒋燕皎; traditional Chinese: 蔣燕皎; pinyin: Jiǎng Yànjiǎo; born 26 June 1986), is a Chinese badminton player from Changzhou. She graduated from the Huaqiao University.[1]

Career

A winner of both the BWF World Junior Championships (2002) and the Asian Junior Championships (2004), Jiang has since emerged as one of the world's leading women's singles players. She won the Chinese national title in 2005, the Denmark Open in 2006, the Asian Championships in both 2007 and 2008, and the China Open in 2008.[1] Jiang played singles for China's world champion Uber Cup (women's international) teams of 2006 and 2008.[2]

As one of several Chinese women's singles players who rate among the world's best, Jiang has been excluded from some international competitions which set a maximum number of participants from any one country. For example, at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing neither Jiang nor reigning world champion Zhu Lin were entered in the women's singles event which limited the strongest badminton nations to three competitors.
