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

I started to play badminton in primary school, and since then my coach instilled in me a love for badminton. I have two big dreams: one of them - to be a participant in the Olympic Games as a badminton player and my second dream - to build a professional badminton sport club in my native country, Ukraine. I want all people in a world to know about the great sport of badminton.
