    Who is Minatsu Mitani?

    Minatsu Mitani is a Japanese Badminton player. She plays for NTT East.

    Here is the link about her (from NTT East): http://www.ntt-east.co.jp/symbol/badminton/

    She is only 18, but she was the runner-up at our 2010 Australian Open GP last Sunday, 18-July.

    After watching her play, we can see that she has great potential to be a top world Badminton player.

    Let us start a thread to provide info about her at BadmintonCentral.

    Cheers... chris-ccc

    .
    It was in mind too; to create a thread for Misaki Matsutomo (from Japan; UNISYS).

    But Misaki will need some time to recover from her injury (from her calf to ankle on her right leg), as she told me. Perhaps, after her injury is fully recovered (I would say, some 6 months later), I shall start a thread for her. :):):)

    Yippee! No more Japanese in PMO, but so many here! It's like the phoenix rising from the ashes, LOL. The Japanese really have good taste, Stockholm is such a beautiful capital. It is built on islands. I hope Mayu can beat Judith later :).
    Oh yes, and your not so well known WD friends are there too. I downloaded their photos from your Facebook last time :D.
