Despite the title, what the girl is holding is clearly a badminton racket, so I’m posting this to celebrate the 3-day badminton marathon that was Sarov Open 2019. We finished earlier today. I won all 3 golds in my category, women’s single, women’s double and mixed double. So so hyped and exhausted, but I had the best time!! Got to meet so many wonderful people who visited from other cities. So many great games. And not gonna lie, winning is THE BEST. 😎
