Biography

I was a restless child and to keep me busy, mum got me a badminton racquet and lobbed paper balls at me.

 

Surprisingly, I contacted them really well. After that I started playing badminton with mum, dad and friends. As I got older, badminton got more serious and I didn't have time for anything else."
