After a year to remember for 23-year old Mark Caljouw, the Dutchman is looking to progress further up the World Rankings over the next twelve months.

The current Orlean Masters Champion has shown that in the previous year he has moved up 15 places in the rankings and getting as high as 25th in the World in that time.

What next for Caljouw?

The 23-year old has an initial goal of continuing to climb the ladder in the BWF World Rankings but does still have his sights on Tokyo 2020.

- My goal for this year is to climb on the world ranking. Going further forward, the Olympics in 2020, this is my next goal, to represent my country in Tokyo.

An amazing year!

Caljouw is more than satisfied with his performance on the court in the past twelve months but he wants to make sure that he stays focused, to continue progressing.

The Dutchman believes that he can start comparing himself to the very best, after participating in a number of tournaments, across Asia.

- The last year was an amazing year for me. I have had a lot of good victories and I hope to continue that

-Now that I have played a lot of tournaments in Asia, I would like to compare myself with the very best players in the world.
