Austrailian Youth Olympic Festival 2013 (AYOF2013)
Just wondering if anyone is aware of this tournament coming up next week? It will feature players from China, Chinese Taipei, Malaysia and GB as well as others and it usually features the top juniors from these countries.
The players sent also tend to be the best from their country (for example, Chen Long & Wang Xiaoli were winners in 2007)
Here's the website, draws aren't published from what I can find: http://corporate.olympics.com.au/gam...om/page/sports
Team GB's squad for the games including badminton players. Fortunately no chance of a medal here!
I was there just moments ago
I'll post pictures here once I'm finished, for your interests

Today, Xue Song was the master of his game
Much more offensive and constructive in his play compared to his opponents. I can see why he is praised by many
Those from China can be proud of their player, very talented youngster
