    When we think of the game of badminton and in particular the super powers of the game images of China, Malaysia and Indonesia are immediately conjured up in our minds. If I asked you to consider Europe your initial, and justified reaction would be to mention Denmark, England, Germany, The Netherlands and probably France. If I asked you to delve further into your knowledge of the game of badminton and mention a few more European countries that have at some point had an impact on the game of Badminton, probably the last European country you would think of is Belarus. With the emergence of Olga Konon, the 18 year old Belarusian wonder kid, the face of badminton in this small European nation is about to change.

    Sport in the blood: Olga Konon was born in the city of Brest, on the Polish Belarusian border on the 11th of November 1989 and is the eldest of two girls. Sport was always in her family as both her parents were keen athletes and excelled in track and field and close family friends had also represented their country in the Olympic Games and International track and field. As a child Olga was obviously exposed to the track and she attributes her current extraordinary will to achieve and win down to watching and observing her parents and their friends excel in athletics though her informative years. Olga herself followed in her parents footsteps and literally found her feet running the 200m and 400m for her local club in Brest and today can still run a mean 400 metres.
    At the age of six Olga found her way indoors to the badminton court. Luckily her local club was only about 400 metres down the road and a quick sprint was all that Olga required to get to her local court. The badminton bug hit as soon as she lifted a racket for the first time. Her focus soon moved from the track to the indoor courts and it became very clear to her parents that Badminton was the sport she truly loved and like all loving parents they supported her in her decision. Olga combined the track with her new found passion for badminton and combined both up to the age of 14. But badminton became her focus and before long she decided that the court was where she well and truly belonged.
    “The first day I picked up a badminton racket I knew I wanted to be a professional badminton player. My parents were key in this decision. There was a sporting spirit all around me when I was young and this spirit rubbed off on me. Sport was just in my blood and the sport for me was badminton” Olga recalls
