“I am very happy to have found a new main sponsor in One Earth – One Ocean, and at the same time being able to make a small contribution to raising awareness of active conservation and preservation of the Earth as an ambassador for oeoo through this partnership.”

 

Professional and ambassador in a globally popular sport

Badminton is often mistakenly equated with the recreational game of shuttlecock. However, while shuttlecock focuses on the longest possible rallies, badminton is an extremely fast Olympic competitive sport with fixed rules.

Badminton is considered the fastest ball sport in the world, a smash can reach 400 km/h, the world record is even 493 kilometres per hour. Squash, tennis or golf do not reach such high speeds. The sport has its roots in England and is as popular throughout Asia as football is here.
