The mixed couples married pairing stormed into the quarter finals lastThursday with a 21-16, 21-16 win over He Jiting and Du Yue.

This set up a clash with the reigning world champions Jilhu and Dongping in the quarter finals on Friday.

“Sadly our hunt for another World medal came to a end,” said Chris Adcock on Instagram. “We lost out in the quarter final to the Chinese, unfortunately we didn’t put in a good performance which is frustrating to say the least at this stage in the tournament. We gave it our best but sometimes it just doesn’t happen.”
