Hsuan-Yu (Wendy) Chen (badminton) was one of only two members of the squad that had previous Commonwealth Games experience in Birmingham where she reached the quarter-finals of the women’s singles and semi-finals of the women’s doubles with Gronya Somerville. The pair eventually lost the bronze-medal play-off to record Australia’s best result in Birmingham. At the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, Wendy lost in the round of 16 in the women’s singles to the eventual silver medallist and was part of Australia’s mixed team that was knocked out in the quarter finals. Born in Taichung, Taiwan and mostly going by the first name Wendy, she was encouraged to play badminton by her family – they all play socially – and made her international debut in 2012. Wendy is also a dual Olympian (Rio 2016, Tokyo 2020). She won the women’s singles titles at the Oceania Championships at the past seven tournaments and claimed the Australian Open women’s singles title again in 2022, beating Tiffany Ho in the final. Wendy was also part of Australia’s 2022 Uber Cup team. Wendy plays at the Sunnybank Hills Badminton Club in Brisbane and has a Bachelor of Clinical Exercise from Queensland University of Technology.
