We hope you enjoyed last week’s 300th episode of Badminton Unlimited. What a fantastic way to walk through time and observe the history of our great sport.
This week it’s time to look to the future as we wrap up the BWF World Junior Championships 2019 from Kazan, Russia. A number of budding superstars were on show including a certain junior from Thailand who made it three consecutive men’s singles World Junior Championships titles.
We also catch up with man of the moment Chou Tien Chenabout his recent success and with just eight weeks until the HSBC BWF World Tour Finals 2019 in Guangzhou, China, we take a look at some interesting facts from last year’s edition.
As we’re in Demark this week, it’s also fitting we relive the moment when one of Denmark’s finest mixed doubles duos Joachim Fischer Nielsen and Christinna Pedersen made history by claiming a record fourth Denmark Open title.
In case you missed it, this is what you missed last week:
- To mark the 300th episode we look back at the origins of our favorite sport! In particular, we trace badminton’s roots back to India and the Poona Club and speak to Indian legends Nandu Natekar and Prakesh Padukone. We also look at where badminton got its name and the significance of Badminton House. Finally, we explore how badminton has become to be the sport it is today with the creation of Badminton Associations around the world.
