  • Chloe Magee visits Badminton Ireland academy cell in Kildare KCELL

    31/05/2016 Chloe Magee visits Badminton Ireland academy cell in Kildare KCELL

    With a hectic qualification period behind and her Olympic qualification secured for Rio in August, Irish number 1 and now three time Olympian Chloe Magee took some time out to visit KCELL Badminton Academy on Sunday last to talk to the kids which proved to be not only a big occasion for the students but also highly motivational.

    Chloe spent about 40 minutes with both KCELL groups taking some interesting questions as well as explaining to the attentive students all about her career to date, her training methods, her family and their support and her feelings about going to her third Olympic games this summer.

    The kids were particularly interested to hear about Chloe’s early career and her struggles to deal with a move to Sweden after her leaving certificate and how lucky they now are to have all the facilities in place where they, if they work hard enough, could also emulate Chloe’s achievements without ever having to leave their families or home.

    Chloe spoke in depth about the opportunities now available to Irelands young players and pointed to the recent European success of Nhat Nguyen and Paul Reynolds as testament to the transformation of opportunities available to our young players since the days when she and Scott Evans had to leave Ireland to develop their badminton careers.

    Of course autographs, photos and selfies were the order of the day after the informal question and answer sessions and all 40 students left with a renewed sense of motivation, after two hard training sessions that is. No rest at KCELL even when a three time Olympian is in the house.
