Irish involvement at the World Championships in China ended today when Chloe Magee was defeated in the opening round by Pai Hsiao-ma of Chinese Taipei.

The Irish number one had lost out in a tight encounter against Pai earlier in the year, but was defeated in a far more convincing fashion this time around.

Controlling the match from the outset, Pai progressed on a 21-14 21-14 scoreline in Guangzhou.
