BWF profile

Tang Yongshu (Chinese: 唐永淑; born December 23, 1975), also known as Tang Hetian or He Tian Tang, is a Chinese female badminton player who competed internationally in the 1990s. She played for Australia in the 2000s.[1][2]

Career[edit]

Specializing in women's doubles, Tang earned a bronze medal at the 1995 IBF World Championships and a silver medal at the 1997 IBF World Championships with her regular partner, Qin Yiyuan. Tang and Qin were also bronze medalists at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, yet they were overshadowed by fellow countrywomen Ge Fei and Gu Jun, the dominant women's doubles team of the day, who took gold at the latter two events. Tang won women's doubles at the 1995 Canadian Open in an unusual partnership with South Korea's Gil Young-ah (as players on the Chinese national squad rarely partner with foreign players). Tang and Qin won women's doubles at the 1997 Thailand Open and played together on the Chinese team that reclaimed the Uber Cup (women's world team championship trophy) from Indonesia in 1998.
