New Delhi: It was double bonanza for India at the Canada Open as B Sai Praneeth and Rio-bound men's doubles pair of Manu Attri and B Sumeeth Reddy clinched twin crowns after winning their respective title clash at the USD 55,000 Grand Prix badminton tournament in Calgary.

The fourth-seeded Indian produced a rampaging form as he defeated South Korea's Lee Hyun II 21-12, 21-10 in a match that lasted just 28 minutes at the Markin MacPhail Centre. On the other hand, Attri and Reddy brushed aside Canada's Adrian Liu and Toby Ng 21-8, 21-14 to win the doubles title.
Last month, Attri and Reddy became the first Indian men's doubles pair to qualify for the Olympics in Rio, which starts from August 5.
