In an exclusive interview with Mia Blichfeldt, the world number 13 in women’s singles, we get to know the Dane even better.  

As a professional badminton player, you spend a lot of time practicing and travelling the world playing tournaments in order to become the best possible player. Mia Blichfeldt has around 12 practice sessions during a week, so there is not a lot of spare time. But when training or travelling are not on the schedule, what does Blichfeldt like to do?

- I like to be creative like painting, baking and cooking food and hanging out with my friends. I think it is important to get out of the “badminton bubble” sometimes, Blichfeldt said. 

- I really enjoy spending time with my friends, family and boyfriend – they give me energy and recharge my batteries so I can perform as good as I can, she continued.

If it was not badminton, then what?

When you are playing badminton every day and do it for a living, it can be hard to see yourself doing anything else. We asked Blichfeldt if she knew what she would do, if she was not playing badminton. 

- That is a difficult question to answer, because I really do not know. Hopefully I would be doing something that challenges me and makes me happy – like badminton right now, she stated.
