Tokyo 2020, interestingly, marks the Olympic debut of many established global badminton stars.
We asked a couple of first-timers to complete the below sentence and these are some of their replies.

“Leaves me delighted. Competing at the Olympics is a goal from a young age. I look forward to being part of Team Ireland and representing my country in Tokyo. Qualification was the first goal, now I want to deliver my best ever performance.”
“Means a great deal for me and my family. They have been supporting my journey since the beginning and when I take to the court in Tokyo, I know they will all be supporting me from back home (in the loudest Yorkshire way possible).”
