    Hi everybody. My name is Derrick Ng and I am currently a badminton player from Canada trying to make it pro! As we all know, being from a Pan American country, it is very difficult to raise our bars to the standard of international play. Also with our geographical position it is expensive to travel to many different countries to compete so we can achieve a better world ranking, and our government doesn't seem to want to fund a sport that does not involve ice or snow.

    So please, if you want, you can follow along my personal blog! It will contain mostly my training activities, my nutritional plan, random thoughts and even how my body is feeling with the amount and quality of training.

    In the end, I hope to gain support and even maybe inspire. Thanks!

    IMO, it's so rad to have you guys loyally supporting the U.S. Open yr in and yr out!:cool:
    Hey, good to know you guys will finally be hosting a Canadian Open GP tourney, this yr as well.
    Anyway, pass the word around, don't abandon us again & enjoy surfing here!;):cool:

    Hi Derrick!
    Welcome to BCF!

    I've seen a video of you playing (forgot which tourney) on badmintonfreak. Unfortunately you guys lost ):
    BUT i'm so happy to see that you guys fought hard against a top pair like the koreans, continue the good work and good luck! :D

    i saw you play against the korean pair of lee yong dae and jung jae sung
    you guys performed admirably although there is a definite difference in level...
    but i'm still rooting for you since we're both canadian
    keep on training, and keep up the hard work!!
