Olga Konon: With FZ FORZA to the top!

Olga Konon, the german shuttler, is one of the most successful European badminton players and she recently fought her way back from injury to the TOP 30 in world (2016). Konon reached the last 16 at the Beijing Olympics at the age of 18 and managed to beat some top-class Chinese badminton players at that time. Numerous of injures throw her back from time to time, but Olga Konon fought back again and again, which showcases the gold medal at the European-team championships in Amsterdam 2012. Yet another knee-injury damped the euphoria, followed less support of the national german badminton federation, which resulted in Konon leaving the national centre and started training at her national club. With numerous of recent victories, for instance at the Bulgarian International 2015 and the Kharkiv International 2015, Konon collected important points for the race to Rio and put herself back on the national radar. Konon fought head to head with her national rival Karin Schnaase and just missed a starting place to Rio with a tiny difference in points to Schnaase. The german shuttler is fully geared with FZ FORZA products and she will fight her way to Tokyo 2020.

“Olga Konon is one of the top women’s singles badminton players in Europe and personally a player with an unbreakable willpower to achieve the most of every situation. FZ FORZA has great faith in her ability to become a world-class badminton player and reach Tokyo in 2020. Olga is, with her personality both on and off court, a true role model for many young badminton players and we see her as a valuable ambassador for the FZ FORZA brand.”, says Martin Lundgaard (FZ FORZA, Brand Manager) in an interview about FZ FORZA signing Olga Konon.

But it is not only at an European and international level, the 26 years old shuttler is successful. Konon crowned herself 3-times as a national champion and just recently won the national team championships with her club BC Bischmisheim. Welcome to the FZ FORZA team, Olga!
