I'm back today with a full run-down of my first round encounter against Kento Momota at All England last week!
I'll share both some tactical insights and of course what happened to my ankel that forced me to retire from the match.
You'll also get an update on the status of my ankle injury as I've been through a couple of tests the last couple of days.
Finally I'll answer four listener questions:
- Why pro players often fly home as soon as possible after losses instead of staying to watch matches
- What I think of Lakshya Sen
- My opinion on unfreezing the world ranking
- My goal for the upcoming European Championships
Thanks for the support everyone - hope you enjoy this one!
An episode focused on my three matches at the Danish National Championships last week where I got away with my fifth silver medal!
Also time for a couple of questions on the popularity of the sport in Denmark and my recovery routine at tournaments.
Make Badminton Great Again refers to something about the popularity of the sport here, so tune in, if you want to know more about that...

The podcast is finally back!
Got my laptop fixed and found some time so I'm finally able to provide you guys with an update from me.
This episode is fully focused on my Olympic experience, giving you a few of my highlights of the event where I watched more badminton than I ever have before!
I also go into what's next for me, what I'm looking ahead to, how I see men's singles develop in the next 12 months and why my early loss at the Danish nationals doesn't bother me at all.
Glad to be back and I really hope you guys enjoy it too!

I love this episode a lot as I really find Toby's story so inspiring. Having to deal with a full loss of all his hair on his entire body with all the mental issues it brings along with it and trying to be the best version of yourself on court certainly haven't been easy for him.
But he says himself he's now at a better place than he even was before being diagnosed with alopecia - get the full reason why in this episode.
Lots of other interesting topics as well, like why he's training most of the time at his own club, Wimbledon, instead of the national centre in Milton Keynes.
We also go into the story behind his rather odd finals statistics at internatonal level where he started off 0 for 6, but then reeled off 5 straight wins!
All this and much more in this 1-hour episode. I really hope you guys enjoy it as much as I enjoyed chatting to Toby.
