Leong Jun Hao may have exited last week’s Indonesia Open in the quarter-finals stage, but the national men’s singles shuttler left a lasting impact at the Super 1000 event after notching the fastest smash.

The 24-year-old smashed to 498.8 kilometres per hour, beating Indonesian Chico Aura Dwi Wardoyo who notched 493.6 km/h.

Lee Zii Jia was in third with 476.3 km/h, and behind him was Leong who also stamped the fourth fastest smash of 455.8 km/h.

The KL-born’s recent exploits at the Indonesia Open, where he also eliminated the higher ranked Jonatan Christie and Chou Tien-chen, saw the shuttler rise four spots to 28 on the world rankings.

Leong’s run ended in the last eight following a straight game defeat against China’s Li Shi Feng.

Malaysia, meanwhile, created another record of fastest smash in the men’s doubles through Nur Izzuddin.

Goh Sze Fei’s partner fired in 493.4 km/h to beat his closest competitor Lu Ching-yao who managed 490.8 km/h.

Malaysia had two other shuttlers in the top 10.

Aaron Chia and Tee Kai Wun recorded 463.3 km/h and 458.8 km/h in eighth and ninth place respectively.

Tee, together with Man Wei Chong made the men’s doubles final before losing to new world number one pair Liang Wei Keng-Wang Chang in three games.
