While in Denmark I visited the Danish National Training Center and met up with the Danish number 2, and World number 7 ranked player, Joachim Persson. Persson was born and originally played for Germany, however as he entered the senior ranks he made the decision to move to Denmark and play for their team. The move has seen him move quickly up the world rankings, although he has missed out on playing at the Olympics as a result. In this interview I speak to Joachim about his early years in badminton, his progression to the Danish national team, and his aspirations for the future.
