The Tokyo Olympics, which has been postponed due to the pandemic, will be held from 23 July to 8 August, and officials will announce the badminton players list on 15 June.
Myanmar badminton player Thet Htar Thuzar is trying to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics and she is currently in good shape. The Badminton star is currently ranked 29th in the latest Olympic qualifying rankings released on 25 May, and also in a good position to qualify for the Olympics.
According to BWF, Thet Htar Thuzar has competed in 15 events during the Olympic qualifying period with a total of 23,650 points.
She has competed in competitions organized by the World Badminton Federation for the past few years and has achieved great success.
The Tokyo Olympics’ Badminton event includes men’s and women’s singles, doubles and mixed events.
The COVID-19 pandemic, which struck the world early last year, has postponed all events of the World Badminton Federation, including the Olympics.
Previously, the Olympic qualifiers was held from April 2019 to early May 2020, but due to the pandemic, the competition was postponed from 4 March to 13 January 2021.
Therefore, points for admission to the Olympics will be calculated from April 2019 to June 13, 2021. The BWF had planned to hold 10 or more competitions this year, but only a few were held due to the epidemic, and most of the competitions were postponed and cancelled.—Ye Yint Lwin/GNLM
