MATCH REPORT BY BELLAETRIX

photo photo

It is startlingly astonishing to witness how the final matches are undoubtedly competitive. I considered this prominent competition as a good platform to prepare future high-performing athletes.

Compared to last year, I saw a dramatic increase not only in the number of young shuttlers, but also for spectators. The finalists were enthusiastically determined to win the title amid deafening roars from the crowd - families and friends are of course cheering for them.

In this occasion, my humble advice to young shuttlers is that a champion is someone who does not give up easily and always strives for excellence. The key to be a champion is to believe in yourself and use setbacks to improve better in the future.

I had so much fun watching the matches. I very much hope that DAIHATSU astec open will be held regularly in order to produce many "young Bellaetrix" in the future.

Special message from BELLAETRIX

Strong determination, discipline and hard work are necessary to achieve your dream. It is a long and winding road ahead, but hard work will always pay off. The most important thing is however to keep your faith in God strong.
