She may only be 10, but Lisa Curtin is already an international badminton star

The Gifford Park Primary School student has been playing all over Europe, and picking up medals along the way.

Back in December, Lisa, who plays locally for MK Allstars, travelled with mum Julie to Holland to compete, and she stunned everyone by picking up gold medals in the singles, doubles and mixed doubles competitions.

And during the Easter break, Lisa competed in Belgium where she took gold in the singles, with silvers in the doubles competitions.

“It’s still just a fun thing for her to do,” said mum Julie. “But to be number one in the country for her age range has surprised everyone.

“I don’t know if she really has any long term goals in the sport, but she will be 19 come the time of the 2024 Olympic Games, so maybe we’ll see her there!

“We’re all really proud of her.”
