Luke Missen Competes in the BWF Para-Badminton World Championships 2015
Bairnsdale badminton player Luke Missen had the opportunity to head off to the UK and compete in the BWF Para-Badminton World Championships 2015.
"The standard of play was phenomenal across all classes and it’s an honour to have the opportunity to represent Australia and compete against the top players in the world. I had some close rallies in most of my matches and could have come away with a win in one. Considering my experience with badminton I was happy to even score points against some of these top players who train for these events all the time."
Pictures of Luke in action can be found at the Luke Missen Gallery and the Match Overview section of the BWF Para-Badminton website. His story 'Luke Ain't Missen' was also told in the East Gippsland News.
