If you are a long time reader of this blog you might recognize the name Xiao He. He is my friend who introduced me to my coach, the friend who taught me my first ever badminton skill, won the first Becky Cup and used tobe a part of my goals.
But two years ago, while playing the first game of a tournament, he snapped his Achilles heel, had surgery, and moved away to be close to his family who had to take care of him. Since then I rarely see him except when he comes back for a rare visit. But this week was one of his visits and I got to sit down and ask about his Achilles tendon injury, now that it is 2 years later. I think it’s inspiring to see someone come back from an injury and Xiao He has done it!
