Two-time Asian champions Chris McHugh and Isaac Kapa, and current World U23 champions Nikki Laird and Mariafe Artacho del Solar will head the Australian challenge, with both teams also hoping to take a major step towards qualifying for this year’s Rio Olympics.
The Asian Championships carry valuable qualifying points for Rio, providing extra incentive for the best teams from Asia and Oceania to perform well.
