    Kumiko Ogura will officially announce her Retirement from Badminton today.
    She will not be playing in International and LOCAL Japanese tournament anymore. :(

    There will be a Retirement Ceremony to appreciate and give thanks for her Badminton contribution.

    Wish i can be there...

    Looks like she got a little emotional in the pics. Let's hope she regains her health first. All the best to her in her future career, whatever that might be.
