Mohawk duo knocks down silver medal again

For the second straight year, Mohawk Mountaineers Chris Hong and Mohammed Nazimuddin have won the silver medal in men’s doubles at the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association’s badminton championships.

After going 4-1 in preliminary play, the Mountaineer tandem defeated Humber’s Dustin Mitchell and Johnny Truong in semi-final play at Redeemer University College in Ancaster on Saturday (Feb. 18).

They then had to face the only team to beat them in this year’s championship – top seeded Dayvon Reid and Mark Wong. The George Brown pair defeated them again, taking Hong and Nazimuddin in two straight games for the gold medal.
