TWENTY OF THE BEST young badminton players on the island got the chance earlier this week to get vital tips from Olympic silver medallist Nathan Robertson when he held a clinic at the Garfield Sobers Gymnasium.

Englishman Robertson won his silver medal in the mixed doubles at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece. He was on the island competing in the Badminton in the Caribbean Tournament at the Gymnasium. The tournament was played on Thursday and yesterday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Robertson conducted his clinic for one hour each day.

Robertson said he was impressed with some of the juniors especially those that came out on the first day of the clinic.

“Yesterday [Thursday] we had the better standard juniors and they showed some good talent and they also showed they are willing to concentrate, which is good, and to learn. They worked hard and hopefully they enjoyed it and they can take it in their training with their own coaches,” he said.
