Carolina Marín: “I've used my down time to improve my techniques”
25 June 2019 @ 13:24

BADMINTON ace Carolina Marín is not sure whether she will be ready for the World Championships in August after collapsing with a knee injury at the Indonesia Masters final in late January – but she says when she does get back on the court, she will be 'better than ever'.

The Olympic gold medallist had already been seen training a week after surgery, albeit from a sitting position – but this has really brought her game on, the 26-year-old says.

Although she does not have a firm idea of when she will be playing professionally again, Carolina fully intends to try for her fourth world championship if her knee does not let her down – but says recovering from her injury is 'the most important thing'.

The four-times European champion admits that she became very low after her injury, fearing it would cost her a place in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, but that her down time has actually helped her improve.

“I've never been out of action for this long, and it's done me good because we've used that time to work on techniques we've never had time to focus on before,” Carolina reveals.

“Normally, it's nearly impossible to find time to train on the finer details of the game, but I've been able to now, and I feel as though I've improved a great deal.”
