World No. 3 Jan O. Jorgensen Joins Team YONEX
- 12 August 2014
YONEX is proud to announce that Danish badminton player and world No. 3 Jan O. Jorgensen has signed with YONEX.
Jan O. Jorgensen is a juggernaut in the badminton world, and has been decorated with a number of titles and medals over the years. He stands at the top of European badminton as the continent’s No. 1 player, and commands a strong presence internationally, ranked at No. 3 globally. In last year’s YONEX French Badminton Open Superseries, he played against current world No. 4 Kenichi Tago, beating him to win the title. He went up against Tago again in the recent 2014 Indonesia Open Superseries Premier, capturing the title there as well.
He recently received the gold medal at the 2014 European Badminton Championships, receiving silver and bronze medals there in the past. Furthermore, he defeated five-time world champion Lin Dan at YONEX OPEN JAPAN 2014.
“It has always been a childhood dream to play with YONEX, because it was the brand I played with as a little child. I was also looking for more reliable stuff. The equipment is amazing—I felt the difference when I hit with a YONEX racquet for the first time. It feels really great. I'm sure this will be a long and very successful cooperation,” commented Jorgensen on his new partnership with YONEX.
YONEX takes great pleasure in supporting the world’s top athletes. We strive tirelessly to ensure that our players can compete with world-class equipment, and are able to play to their top potential. We also go through great lengths to provide our players with an environment where they can thrive.
