At the Badminton Canada 2017 Canadian Senior National Championships in February, Ontario athlete Brian Yang advanced to the Men’s Singles final – what an accomplishment for a fifteen-year-old competing against athletes 20 years of age and older.

“To play against and beat Canada’s senior top players was not easy for me. They were more experienced, they had more power and they had better fitness. I had to really focus and use all my ability on each point. I am very happy with my performance. I am glad that I was able to win a senior national medal at the age of 15. This encourages me to play more senior tournaments from now on.” said Brian.
