Nguyen Thuy Linh falls out of the top 25 in the world rankings

The latest rankings from the Badminton World Federation (BWF), released on July 9, show a significant change for Vietnam’s top female badminton player, Nguyen Thuy Linh. Thuy Linh has dropped four places and is now ranked 26th in the world.

One of the main reasons for Thuy Linh’s decline in the BWF rankings is her recent lack of participation in international tournaments. The last time she competed internationally was during the tournaments in Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia in early June. These events were part of her preparation for the upcoming 2024 Paris Olympics.

Currently, Nguyen Thuy Linh is training in Bac Ninh under the guidance of an Indonesian expert to fine-tune her skills for the Olympics. This recent ranking drop to outside the top 25 is the lowest Thuy Linh has been in the past year. Throughout her continuous international competitions, her ranking has consistently stayed within the top 20 in the world.


In contrast, the BWF rankings also brought good news for another Vietnamese player, Le Duc Phat, who has climbed two places to reach 70th in the men’s singles category. Similar to Thuy Linh, Duc Phat has also not participated in international competitions recently, focusing instead on his training for the 2024 Paris Olympics. The 70th position marks the highest ranking Duc Phat has achieved in the BWF rankings. He is currently training alongside Thuy Linh in Bac Ninh as they both prepare for the Olympics.

Thuy Linh’s recent drop in the rankings highlights the importance of regular participation in international tournaments to maintain a high ranking. Her absence from the international scene has clearly impacted her position, despite her consistent performance in previous competitions. As she gears up for the Olympics, Thuy Linh will be looking to regain her form and climb back into the top 25.

The training sessions in Bac Ninh are crucial for both Thuy Linh and Duc Phat as they prepare for one of the most significant events in their careers. With the guidance of experienced coaches and a focused training regimen, they aim to peak at the right time and perform their best at the Paris Olympics.

The upcoming months will be critical for these athletes as they balance their training with strategic participation in tournaments to improve their rankings and gain competitive experience. The support from their coaching staff and their dedication to their training will play a significant role in their success on the international stage.
