She is a two-time European champion
Sixteen-year-old Kaloyana Nalbantova won the title of the European Badminton Championship, in the under-19 category. “It was quite difficult as they are 2 years older than me and a lot more played. They have more skills”, commented the champion.
“To be honest, we didn’t go with that idea. We went with the idea of fighting for a medal as the competition was very strong. The scheme was not favorable to us. The competition itself was quite tough”, added the coach of Kaloyana – Stiliyan Makarski.
The girl has other titles behind her. Wins continental gold. In 2021, he is also fighting for the title in the under-17 category.
The competitor is preparing for next year’s European Games, as well as for the Olympics in 2024. Kaloyana said that behind her victories lies a lot of hard work and perseverance. “In the difficult moments, when you are tired and when the opponent is also tired, it is decided who has more will, fighting spirit and the desire to win,” commented the badminton player.
