Estonia’s female badminton player Kati Tolmoff in Beijing 2008 Olympics

I love the name of Estonia’s female badminton player, Kati. It’s like a merging of my parents names: My dad Mati (who is Estonian) and my mom Kathy (German).

This Estonian woman badminton player had better chances to win than her male counterpart, as Kati’s world ranking is 46, while Raul Must’s ranking is 74. Kati was facing Ireland’s Chole Magee ranked at #77.

Kati started the match off well winning the first game 21-18. But then she lost the last two games 18-21 and 19-21. There’s no video available on NBC’s site of this match. But there is an interview with Kati on YouTube:
