    .. I read on Badmintonsite.com that Kenneth Jonassen is going to stop he's badminton career after Beijing 2008, i'm really happy to see that ahaha because before he wanted to stop after WC 2005, now i have plenty time to meet hiim ^^ Cuz He's one of my idol, i always loved he's never say die attitude :D :D

    Emmet: Now for yourself, is Beijing 2008 going to be the end of the line for you, or do you see yourself going beyond Beijing?
    Kenneth: (Smiling) This is the end. I think that Beijing is of course a long time too, but I have made up my mind, that it will be the finish line. I would play out the year to finish my contract, but that would be it. There are so many things until then, so instead of thinking 3 years ahead, which at my age is pretty hard, you have to think about all the practice, and the travel you need to do. I take it week by week, and mainly it’s about being healthy and not getting those injuries that will keep you out for 3 months, and stay positive and focused. Also, I need to enjoy the game. I have missed that one in the past. I’ve been a bit too serious instead of enjoying being in the top 8 for such a long time. My main goal will be to enjoy the game for the next 2 or 3 years.

    That's the spirit, Kenneth! :D
    It's an obvious but important point: remembering to enjoy the game.

    KJ is one of the most hard working and dedicated player in badminton. In every match he plays, he always gives 110% and that's one of the reasons people respect him so much.
