Words of wisdom, especially answer in A10.
Now we know that why she isn't well exposed in internationa; thournaments. Anyway, she is playing for Germany now, aren't you excited?

For the German team it is also good, she has beaten Juliane a couple of times already, and for me she is the better player compared to Ms Schenk. But important for the Baddy world would be if she is enabled now to play some more tournaments and can join SS. So it looks that we gotta keep an eye on her, and with some success it will hopefully push Baddy a bit more in Germany - we can't trust the knight, we need the girls!

Both the Polish coaches leaving was a good indicator (the Korean coach, now headcoach of Netherlands and the russian woman now back in Russia) . Can't find the thread were we previously discussed it ... maybe Bitburger thread? Not important anymore anyway ... lucky Germans: perfect replacement Schenk for Xu Huiawen and Olga for Schenk in WS2.

Hoping that Olga could raise the WS players' standard in Poland
Yes, it's lucky for Germany and Olga Konon. But it's not good for Poland though.
I was hoping that Olga could raise the WS players' standard for Poland. Now that Poland is without Olga, who are the other Polish WS players who could replace her as a strong WS player at tournaments?

anyway, I don't care that much about the German team, but for Olga it's the best she could do at the moment, and that should be good for baddy fans all over the world. that's it, good luck - hope she fixes once in her life the homepage LOL

have asked Juliane Schenk about what she's thinking of having a new member in the German squad - she said that it's good to have a new and good sparring partner in the team, about how it works to be in one team she said - until now they didn't have much to do together, so lets see how it works.

looks like Olga is on her way now, she won 2 European tour titles in a row, I hope that they will send her to Asia this year to the SS tour. We cant put all the burdon on Saina and the Thai girls, they need Olga in the squad fighting the great wall!

World class pair join Carlton
6th January 2011 – Leading badminton brand Carlton today announced that it has signed a sponsorship deal with the men’s World number 49, Scott Evans, and women’s World number 47, Olga Konon to the team. They join the likes of Nathan Robertson, Yao Jie and Dicky Palyama as Carlton brand ambassadors who also enjoyed great success in 2010.
Irish international Evans is currently Ireland’s number one men’s singles badminton player and was the first ever Irishman to compete at Olympic level when he qualified for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Evans reached a career best ranking of World number 39 in November 2010 and is looking to progress even further in 2011
Olga Konon is seen by many as one of the hottest prospects in women’s badminton. Known for her speed and attacking style of play Konon, who represented Belarus in 2008 Beijing Olympics, will now represent Germany having recently gained German citizenship. In December 2010 Konon won both the Italian and Norwegian Championships and is looking to add to these moving into 2011.
