Today we met Daniel Shirley. He is an olympian badminton player and played in the Athens Olympic Games. He started playing lots of other sports from when he was 8, but badminton was his favourite.
play badminton with a racquet and shuttle and you hit it to each other
over a net. To win a game you score the most points, it also has a time
said to become an Olympic champion you need to train a lot. Daniel
trained very hard, 6 hours a day, every morning before and after school.
He also said that you should show the Olympic values of respect,
excellence and friendship.
We loved talking to Daniel and he inspired us to try badminton and be our best.
