    Well the Netherlands have a very good team this year so I think they'll claim the Team Championship. Russia, England, Germany and off course Denmark will battle for the other medals.

    Predictions for the indivual event will came later :p

    Sylvain Grosjean/Sam Magee will be vying for the title after 2 near misses, beaten in the German and Dutch Juniors by Mohd Ulinnuha/Berry Angriawan.

    Euro-badminton is very liberal eh? This pair is from France and Ireland...:eek: Even at the Junior level a pair can represent 2 different national badminton associations... I am sure we won't find this practice at the Asian Junior Championships... :eek:

    Oh, I predict Russia will win WS and WD in this tournament. I love this! If Russia and the other Eastern block countries support badminton, then we will most probably stay in the Olympics forever... :cool: AND, we will see more sexy Eastern Euro girls playing badminton. Good for the sport! :cool:

    These two are already playing for a long time and it doesn't seem like they will be playing with a compatriot in the near future. But I'm not sure if they're allowed to play together at the world championships or even the Olympics... :confused:

    I agree, difficulty with these Juniors is that they don't have much to qualify them on. So there's a lot of discussion between the organisation and the different countries about this everytime again. Also a lot of players in Southern Europe don't play a lot of tournaments, so it's almost impossible to know how good they are...
