Despite still recovering from an injury, Sam Parsons of England still has big ambitions for his badminton career for the upcoming year.

Parsons, 23, believes that it is a realistic goal to reach the top 45 in the world rankings over the course of the next 12 months. However, he does understand the challenge that he is facing.

- I want to Reach the top 45, in the world rankings. This will be a tough goal to obtain due to the Olympic qualifying year coming up but I do believe that this is attainable.

- I would also like to win an IC grade tournament, as I have now won a couple of IS grade tournaments and am looking to progress to the next level, but also be able to continue to win IS grade tournaments on a more regular basis.

Take a look at the current World Ranking, 

Representing England is massive for Parsons  

Parsons also wants to continue representing his home country in the upcoming team competitions and to keep progressing.

Parsons made his senior team events debut in 2014, at the Delhi Thomas Cup Finals, and has been a professional since he was 18 years old.

- Another goal for the upcoming season is to continue to represent England in upcoming team events and continue to get good wins against players that are ranked higher than myself.

Badminton career goals for Parsons

The England International has big ambitions for his whole career but again understands that it will take a lot of hard work and determination to attain them.

- My main ambition in badminton and one that I believe that most players dream of achieving, is to represent my country at the Olympic Games.

- I also want to reach a ranking in the top 10 in the world.  I want to be a fighter on the court to make it incredibly hard for my opponents to beat me.
