Additional information / What would you like people to know about you?

I have practised badminton at the highest level for the past five years. My father played badminton, then my brother, and finally me too. When I was younger I won several medals very quickly, and that persuaded me to become better and better, and try to become one of the best French players. I have already competed at the 2014 European Championships, but the Baku 2015 European Games will be the biggest tournament I will compete in and I'm looking forward to the Olympic Games in Tokyo. This competition motivates me to keep training every day and get a medal. I will be so proud.
