The Malaysian backup squad continue to stake their claim in the main team with another dominant display in Europe, sweeping four out of five titles at the Hellas International in Lavrio, Greece.

Fresh from a three-title winning performance in Latvia last week, the youthful shuttlers went one better missing out only on the women's singles crown.

Surging doubles player, Valeree Siow was once again the biggest winner after sealing both the mixed doubles with Yap Roy King and then the women's doubles with Low Yeen Yuan.

In the mixed doubles, Roy King-Valeree overcame third seeds Carl Christian Mork-Solvar Flaten Joergensen of Denmark with a 21-13 21-17 win.

In the women's doubles, Yeen Yuan-Valeree upset seconds seeds, Italy's Katherina Fink-Yasmine Hamza 21-15 21-16.

In the men's doubles, last week's finalists Wan Arif Wan Junaidi-Haikal Nazri came out victorious through a comfortable 21-16 21-15 win over Czech Republic's Ondrej Kral-Adam Mendrek.

Lee Shun Yang completed Malaysia's four title rout when he defeated another Czech shuttler Jan Louda 21-14 24-22 in the men's singles final.
