EM Wraber’s last Olympic chance – sport.ORF.at

The European Badminton Championships starting on Monday in Saarbrücken are Lukas Wraber’s last chance to qualify for the Olympics. After a weak start to the year, we need a big surprise. In the women’s doubles, Austria is represented by Serena Au Yong and Katharina Hochmeir.

Wraber, who is currently ranked 128th in the world, will face German Fabian Roth (ranked 86th) on Monday. “The first match is immediately crucial. Roth is a player I can beat,” Wraber said. So far in 2024 he has suffered five opening defeats in a row, which is why successful Olympic qualification is a long way off. The European Championship is the last tournament that counts towards Olympic qualification.

The women’s duo, in 83rd position, will compete on Tuesday against the Czechs Veronika Brozkovcova and Veronika Dobiasova (125th).
