i enjoy

When I feel like I’ve really grown through my day-to-day training. The beauty of badminton is how you grow not just as an athlete, but as a person as well.

Strong points

“My strength is in my powerful playstyle, which comes from the physical strength I’ve built through training! I’m especially proud of how heavily I’ve trained my right leg, and the jump smash that comes from that.”
