Jamaica’s top Badminton men’s singles player, Gareth Henry, performed well this week, in the XXI Peru International 2016.   Henry, whose current world ranking is 193, reached the round of 16, where Austria’s David Obernosterer (runner up in our recent Jamaica International 2016), defeated the Jamaican, 21-13, 21-17.
Following a week of training in Peru, in the PanAm Confederation sponsored training program for elite Badminton players, Henry competed in the XXI Peru International.
PanAm Director of Development, German Valdez, had the following observation “Personally I am very happy with Gareth’s performance in training, attitude during camp and effort. Also in free time he was doing some school work to send back… this is good! Mature and responsible.  In tournament he had good performance winning important match yesterday and today playing fine… maybe could have gone to 3 games but all around he played good and can tell you I am very happy to have brought him to the camp. Let’s see what there is in the future for him.”
Henry returned to Jamaica today.
