Olympic Badminton Hopefuls In Training

Heart have been to see the Olympic hopefuls in training at the National Badminton Centre in Milton Keynes

For Nathan Robertson this will be his forth Olympics if he and his doubles partner Jenny Wallwork qualify. He already has an Olympic Silver from Athens.

Qualifying won't be easy for the pair though, they have tough competition with Chris Adcock and Imogen Bankier currently four places above them in World rankings in 14th place.

For Nathan this will be his last chance to win gold as he plans to retire after the games.

He thinks he has a good chance with his career experience:

Nathan has had a very successful career, the only thing missing from his medals cabinet is an Olympic gold.

For Chris Adcock who plays men’s and mixed doubles this will be his first Olympics, he told Heart what he's most looking forward to:
