    --------------------Duncan Milroy's badminton history
    By Chris Marchand,



    'Where'd that Milroy kid get that wrist shot anyway?' While there is no doubt Kootenay Ice fans are happy to have the WHL's most prolific scorer on the roster this season, Duncan Milroy's history as a high calibre athlete in a completely different sport is a fact most Cranbrook hockey fans and even a few of his teammates may be unaware of.

    Before entering the WHL at the age 16, Milroy captured five national titles in singles badminton in a two-year span, and was Canada's highest ranked player in his age range until leaving the sport behind for hockey.

    "When I grew up I played every sport and badminton and hockey were the ones I took a liking to," Milroy said. "My brothers and I played it forever, and I decided to quit when I was 16 and joined the Western Hockey League."

    Badminton is a family affair for Milroy. His brothers, Bob and William took recent titles in singles and doubles play respectively at the national championships in Sherbrooke, Que. Between him and his siblings, the brothers Milroy hold a total of 15 national titles.

    "They're both ranked number one in Canada in different categories, so they're doing well," Milroy said. "I've always competed against them and that's helped for hockey and badminton; I've always tried to be better than them. They've done a lot for my hockey career."

    Unlike countries such as Indonesia, Holland and Korea, where top badminton players are revered as national heroes, Milroy said the sport doesn't receive the attention it deserves in North America.

    He is quick to dismiss the macho perceptions of badminton as an easy, less physical sport. "I don't think it's 'girly' at all," he said. "It's very competitive, it's the second most popular sport in the world. I don't think people tend to know exactly how tough the sport of badminton is. It's one of the toughest sports in the world, I believe. You have to be really committed to play it. Canada doesn't get a lot of exposure to it because we don't have great funding like the Asians and Europeans where it is really popular."

    Never one to toot his own horn, Milroy said he's not sure how many of his teammates know about his past in the sport. "I think a lot of them know," he said. "I think if you ask them you'd get the 'girlish' comment, but the guys don't bother me too much about it. I think they wish they could get out there and play it, to be honest. They want to see if I really am what I was. I could probably make a few bets and make a little money off of it."

    Milroy said his involvement in the sport allowed him the opportunity to travel abroad, including an eye-opening trip to the UK for the European Championships. But eventually, the call of the ice was too strong to ignore. "It's just a fun sport," he said. "I benefited a lot from it, traveling all over the world. It was a great thrill when I played and in some ways I still wish I could be playing both, but hockey definitely takes up most of my time now.'

    Besides benefiting from the experience of high-level competition, Milroy said his badminton skills have helped his play on the ice. "I think the skills cross over a lot," he said. "You have to be really fit to play badminton; it's a running game and you don't get a lot of breaks between rallies. Also the agility for moving side to side really helps. You use a lot of wrist actions in badminton and in hockey a wrist shot...is all wrist." Milroy encourages all the non-believers out there to throw on some white shorts, non-marking soles and bat the 'ol shuttlecock.

    "You always come back with a nice sweat on you, it's good exercise,' Milroy said. "I encourage everybody to get out there and try it if they haven't played before

    peter,

    at first i've just noticed that was a advance electronic machine with numbers on it. coz u know, for me it's always like "action comes first".
    i looked at that machine whenever i passed by. the numbers was 30 this time, then may be next time is 30 something......after a couple of times with different reading. i realized that it should be the indication of string tension. then i talked to that guy and ask him about his "highest" order. he told me "36". then i said "wow that's amazing!" then i went back to position and shoot.
    that's the story!

    not a very fair comment - think the photo of bobby milroy has more reason to comment on - why does this person in the photo get so much attention

    36lbs.?! What string could take that tension? Has to be 0.70mm or higher. I doubt a 0.69mm or less thickness string could take it.
