professional badminton players after their career
i heard from someone that professional badminton players in their late 30s and 40s develop injuries and may have to seen in a wheelchair due to overtraining, is this true?

hahaha... i hope not. I know for a fact that Ardy Wiranata can still play competitve badminton at 35 (i think) and hes not even close to being confined to a wheel chair.

It would be ironic indeed if you heard that from another Canadian considering that 44-year-old Canadian Denyse Julien set the record in Athens for being the oldest ever Olympic badminton competitor.
The ranks of the Korea Badminton Association teem with ex-professionals, as does the coaching staff of every school and professional club. None have any trouble walking, some are still very good at playing, and most look very fit.

Dont think people are that injured after playing on the world circuit. But the way badminton is played with massive pressure on knees and back for those angles and jumps puts a pressure on your body and cause of that players sometimes have to retire before they wanted to due to some injury. we have seen players like Sun Jun and Peter Rasmussen totally worn out and had to retire.
Camilla Martin however didnt retire due to injuries. she only had one major injury in her 13 years old career and that happened in AE 2004 when she already had planned to retire. Camilla Martin was fed up with badminton and who can blame her, for over a decade she was the single european to fight the asians and the "wall" from China and to succed in that is one of the biggest performances ive seen in the history of sport. That WC 99 was outstanding!

Of course, the chance to be that badly injuried, could be rare, but I would rather believe the stories.

Wow, seems that badminton is a dangerous sport ! I thought that boxing was more dangerous than badminton.
It is possible to develop an injury, but it seems to me that it is a rarity.

Well, most players after they retire coach, open a business or maybe just enjoy their retirement... Hahahahahhaha... Badminton is not a dangerous sport, hahaha, if you are not fit, then it ould be.. Well, it depends on how hard you train.. And just remember, young kids shouldn't train (physical trng) on hard floors.. Bad for their bones...
Anyway, most INA players turn out to be businessmen, coaches... Like, Rudy Hartono -> Top One oil.. Alan Budi Kusuma & Susy Susanti ->ASTEC...
Very rich ppl...

If you are better perpare physically than you wont put unnessary injuries to those area.. and extra muscle would have strengthen the join.
But Han Jian style is less physical demanding that those attacking players. He even said nowadays profesional badminton player stroke technique are not suitable for long term playing! as they can get injured easily!
