  • Career Highlights: Wang is the lone female badminton athlete heading to London to represent the United States, but being along on the world stage is nothing new. She was also the lone American to compete in singles in last year’s world championships, where she lost in the first round to Italy’s Agnese Allegrini. Wang and her sister, Iris, did advance to the second round in doubles at the worlds, however, eventually falling to No. 16 seed Sari Shinta Mulia and Yao Lei of Singapore. Wang is coached by men’s Olympic team member Tony Gunawan, a former Olympic gold medalist with Indonesia. Currently a biology major at UCLA, Wang showed some promise last year by winning the Peru International tournament to earn 4,000 rankings points. She has been ranked as high as No. 48 in the world in singles and as high as No. 25 in doubles with her sister. Unfortunately, Wang will not be competing in doubles at these Olympics and, with her ranking hovering in the 50s, figures to face some top competition right from the start in London.
  • Previous Olympics: None
