This morning, Badminton Europe has released another BEC Podcast, which is available to view on Facebook, YouTube and is also available to listen to on SoundCloud right now!

This episode features Mads Conrad-Petersen who sat down with presenter Rasmus Bech and gave the lowdown of his badminton progress at the moment.

The 30-year-old spoke about his family and how important it is to him as well as travelling around the world playing badminton.

Family is everything

Badminton Europe’s Communication Manager, Rasmus Bech, spoke about the podcast returning and hopes that it will help people to understand more about the players.

- It is tough to be away from your family. You need to take a lot of discussions like how to cope with this new life, being away for sometimes three weeks in a row, Mads Conrad-Petersen said.

- Coming back and suddenly your child can walk or something. You have to accept that you will not be there all the time, and that demands a very strong woman back home. I am lucky and happy to have that because without her, it would not be possible at all. 

- So, for me, of course family is much more important than this, he told the BEC Podcast.

Something to look out for 

Conrad-Petersen also spoke about his career and how proud both he and those close to him are of his achievements.

The 30-year-old also revealed that when he was younger, how many sports he took part in and the fact that he never dreamed of being once in the Top 4 in the world rankings.
