Injuries

Sprained left ankle 10 days before the 2014 Youth Olympic Games qualifying tournament in Lima. He was unable to run or train for three weeks. (durhamregion.com, 20 Apr 2010)


Reason: "The first time I ever played I was probably three years old. That was just having fun with my parents, but I didn’t start training until I was 11. I didn’t start taking it seriously until I was 13." (humberetc.com, 17 Feb 2017)
Ambition: "Ultimately my major goal in the end is to qualify for the Olympic team. I came close for the Rio Olympics but came short and that was tough, but that would be really nice to go to 2020 in Tokyo because I have family there. I’d be on cloud nine if I made it. Not a lot of people get to do it, especially in the sport of badminton." (humberetc.com, 17 Feb 2017)
Hero: Jamaican sprinter Usain BOLT and Swiss tennis player Roger FEDERER. (Sarah Miller YouTube, 19 Jan 2016)
