“Let’s talk about “competition”.

Badminton is a part of our lives.
Because of Badminton, we were able to
have all kinds of experiences, and we also
met each other.

Since winning the gold at Rio we struggled to find a new goal and at times it was
difficult to stay motivated.

However, after we had a talk with each
other, we feel joy again, as we walk along
this path together.

It’s because it’s the two of us, together,
That we want to give our all until the very
end and live in a way that’s true to us.
