Biographical Information


Languages spoken: English
Coach

PERSONAL: Efendi WIJAYA (INA) (e-badmintonclub.com, 16 Mar 2018)


Position style: Right-handed
Reason: "When I first started badminton I was eight. My parents were invited by friends to play badminton at a school. They took me, so I could play with the kids. I watched the adults and found it very interesting. I picked up my parents' racket and gave it a try. I liked the sound when the racket hit the bird." (BadmintonCanada YouTube, 4 Oct 2016; badmintonontario.ca, Mar 2017)
Ambition: "My biggest dream is to represent Canada in the Olympics and try to earn a medal." (badmintonontario.ca, Mar 2017)
Hero: "My role model is LEE Chong Wei (MAS). He is a legend of badminton. He trains hard off court and fights hard on court." (badmintonontario.ca, Mar 2017)
Additional information

YOUNGEST
At age 14, became the youngest badminton player to win the national U19 men's singles and mixed doubles. "I was very happy because people were three or four years older than me, and I was able to win." (BadmintonCanada YouTube, 4 Oct 2016)


SICKEST VICTORY
"At the 2015 Pan American Games in Tijuana, Mexico, I got food poisoning on the second day of the tournament. I was vomiting the whole night. I could not fall asleep or eat anything. I couldn’t even drink water. The next morning I was extremely dizzy. My parents asked if I wanted to withdraw and go to hospital. I did not want to disappoint my partners and go down without a fight. I continued to play the tournament, with a trash can beside the court in case I had to vomit. I had to lie down at the infirmary after each match. With the help of the tournament doctor, the coaches, parents and players of Canada, I slowly got better and won two gold and a bronze." (badmintonontario.ca, 2017)
