Beginning at the age of seven when he lived in Hong King, Great Neck North High School sophomore Anson Cheung has worked his way up to becoming both a nationally ranked badminton player and the defending Nassau County First Singles champion.
Currently, the slender 15-year-old is ranked 29th in the United States in the under 17-year-old division, but his ranking might be considerably higher were it not for the fact that the 5-9 youngster restricts himself to entevring qualifying tournaments on the East Coast only. If he took part in the many other events nationally available, it is probable that he would be able to pick up additional ranking points in his age group.
