AUSTRALIA has narrowly missed a clean sweep in badminton's Oceania Championships.
The Aussies collected victory in four of the five disciplines of competition when finals concluded at Ken Kay Stadium in Ballarat yesterday.
Australia's only blemish came in the mixed doubles, where New Zealand's Oliver and Susannah Leydon-Davis took out the final against Matthew Chau and Jacqueline Guan.
