    And don't forget that she won Olympic silver at 16!

    When she was 9 she beat me in 3 sets and I was 19 and I was a State player in Australia for the Under 21s. Mia is pure talent! Too bad she put on a lot of weight.

    most players started young because they took badminton as recreational sport. but Han Jian took badminton seriously as a professional sport. it was never too late for him to start at 17. so, for youngsters out there, pick a racket and start playing.

    Default Off topic-Speaking of youngsters...

    ..i know this hasn't happened yet, but if it comes to fruition, keep an eye & don't forget the name Brandon Han..I believe he started swinging his dad's rackets when he was less than 1 yrs old..
