For the first time, a French Para badminton player joins the Centre of Excellence to train with some of Europe’s top talents. SU5 men’s singles player, Meril Loquette, shares his experience so far.

Meril Loquette, world number six, has been practising at the Centre of Excellence since last week. Talking about how it has been, he said. 
 
- It is very cool to see all the players from a lot of countries coming together for the same sport. It is very nice. 

Asking what has been the best part of has been being at the Centre until now, Loquette answered without a doubt.

- Today! Because we have been playing matches all morning and the coaches are always near to tell me what is good and what I need to change. 


Towards the Paralympics
The Paralympics were postponed from 2020 to 2021 just like the Olympics, but for Loquette it is not a problem as it gives him better chances to reach his goal. 

- My goal is to win the best medal, maybe gold. For me, it is good that the Paralympics has been postponed, as I needed more time for practice. But now I am ready to fight!

Loquette continues his training at the Centre of Excellence until 18 December.
