This pictures was taken at a training camp when I was about 13 years old. I still clearly remember all these summer camps, where focus was on making friends, having fun and becoming a better badminton player. Here some 27 years later, it’s time to retire from the sport, that has had almost all my attention, since I was a little boy. I have made friends all over the world, I have had a lot of fun and I have done everything I could to become the best possible badminton player I could be. I want to send a massive thank you to my childhood club @odensebadmintonklub, @badmintondenmark, @teamdanmark, its staff, my coaches, my friends, who I promise that I will never say no to wine again 😜🍾 and my fans. A special thank you to my colleagues over the years in Brøndby, Carsten and Mads for putting up with me on court, and of course to my family who have supported me continuously over so many years. Time to draw the curtains on this chapter of my life. 🙏🏻❤️
