Huang Sui (simplified Chinese: 黄穗; traditional Chinese: 黃穗; pinyin: Huáng Suì; born January 8, 1982 in Hunan, China) is a Chinese-Australian female badminton player.

Career[edit]

Although Huang has won the Chinese National mixed doubles title almost all of her many international titles have come in women's doubles with Gao Ling, in a partnership where Huang's strength and consistency in the backcourt have complemented Gao's ability in the forecourt. They have captured over thirty top tier events since 2001, sharing dominance at the world level with their Chinese teammates and rivals Yang Wei and Zhang Jiewen. Huang and Gao have been especially successful at the All-England Championships, winning a record six consecutive finals there, three of them over Yang and Zhang, from 2001 through 2006. They reached the final of five consecutive editions of the BWF World Championships; winning in 2001, 2003, and 2006, and finishing second to Yang and Zhang in 2005 and 2007. Huang was a silver medalist with Gao at the 2004 Athens Olympics also won by Yang and Zhang. Neither team figured in the medals at the 2008 Olympics (won by another Chinese pair, Du Jing and Yu Yang). Huang has been a member of China's perennial world champion Uber Cup (women's international) team since 2002. In 2005 Huang's smash was clocked at 257 kilometres per hour (160 mph).[1] She retired from the sport at the end of the 2007 season and subsequently moved to Sydney, Australia with her husband.

After a long absence from the sport Huang returned to the court in 2012, this time as an Australian.[2]
