    Poor Megumi. There are only 6 places for singles in the A team. It's really competitive. Also, the players in the B team are very good. Like Nozomi Okuhara and Sayaka Takahashi. Japan is fast becoming a powerhouse in the world of badminton. But, at least, the B team players get to play in a beautiful city like Vienna.

    ?? The photo was taken only 6 months ago. At the school nationals in Okinawa last October. But she's probably at an age when her facial features are changing. Do you have her actual age and height?

    Thanks for the video link. You managed again to find stuff that I can't [​IMG]. Just realised that they have at least two tournaments in a year, this one in March, and another in July/August. One of the bronze medallist from last year's July tournament, a certain Kimura (木村百花), is from Tomioka, a coastal town in Fukushima. Hope she is alright [​IMG].

    Okay, now Takuma Ueda has officially joined Unisys.
    Sayaka Sato is still remained independent.
    Sayaka Takahashi has joined Sanyo.
    Sayaka Takahashi has made a good decision to join Sanyo because Sanyo has a very good WS, haha... :D
    Takuma Ueda should have joined NTT East. :(
