Manitoba Badminton Association – Yonex 2019 Junior/U23 National Championship &
U11/U13 Junior National Development Team Trials
Results & thank you!
The 2019 Yonex Junior Nationals and the U11/U13 PanAm Trials wrapped up last Saturday at the Canada Games Sport for Life Center. The event was one of the largest ever hosted by the Manitoba Badminton Association and brought in athletes from all over Canada.
From the Opening Ceremonies on the Monday to Medal Ceremonies last Saturday, the week was filled with great moments. Three Manitobans reached the podium. In Men’s Singles, Kiren Deraj (U19) earned a bronze medal and Thien Bao Vo (U23) won the national title. In Men’s Doubles, Thien Bao Vo and Félix Tessier (U23) earned a silver medal. Several other Manitobans had incredible runs ending in main round quarter-finals or consolation finals. Full results can be found here.
The event would not have been possible without the organizing community, sponsors, and the many volunteers. One volunteer in particular, Orlando Athayde, captured over 2000 photos throughout the week. The online gallery can be found here.
We’d like to thank you, the media, for your support. We are thankful for the profiles done of certain athletes and the visibility of our event. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you wish to touch base with athletes from Manitoba.
