10:59 am on 24 January 2011

The Denmark-based Aucklander Michelle Chan has won the women's title at the Estonia Badminton Open in Tallinn.

It is Chan's first win on the tough European circuit and positions her well going into the Swedish International tournament in Stockholm this week.

The win will lift Chan's world ranking to around 70.

She says due to injury over the past six months she had lost some ranking but is now working her way to the top 60 in the world before qualifying for the Olympics.
