Going from strength to strength. It’s a cliché, but…

Following on from his success at the 2017 Masters Games, Burty Molia is heading to the Gold Coast to compete in the 2018 Commonwealth Games. Burty, who will be completing in singles, men’s doubles and mixed doubles badminton is hoping to build on his last visit to the Commonwealth Games which were in Melbourne in 2006.

This year, Burty will once again be up against world class players, and while he is not expecting to win any medals, he is hoping to set a high standard for himself and his colleagues and show that age doesn’t really matter. His goal is to get past the first round and see where it goes from there!

His training regime is demanding. He practises on the court at least three days a week, for a minimum of two hours and includes additional cardio workouts. Of course Burty is also  watching his diet. Burty has improved his game and as a mature player, he enjoys the thrill of pushing his limits and improving his technique – especially when competing against younger, more athletic players.

The team at Triquestra is right behind Burty and wishes him every success in the games, and whatever the outcome, we are holding on tight to our bragging rights.
