  • How did it feel to win the world championships?
  • Is the lack of funding, compared to Asia, a barrier to catching up with the Asian players?
  • What do we have to do to develop and grow para-badminton so that come Paralympics we can challenge the Asians?
  • If the nations worked more together would that help us in our challenge to win medals at all the majors from now on?
  • How do you fit para-badminton training in around your life?
