Spend a few moments with Daniela Huhn, and you’ll be inspired by her enthusiasm and energy. Whether she’s on the court defeating opponents or in the stands cheering on her teammates, Daniela is fully committed to badminton. Recently, she had the honor of carrying her delegation’s flag at the opening ceremony of the Special Olympics World Games in Berlin. Walking out to a crowd of 50,000 cheering people at the iconic Olympiastadion was an emotional and unforgettable experience for her.

Daniela’s selection as the flag bearer was not only because she is a native of Berlin or for her impressive accomplishments in the sport. It was also because she effortlessly brings people together and motivates them to do their best. Her dedication to the sport is admired by her fellow athletes, who see her as a role model.

Although Daniela won gold in the women’s singles event at the Messe exhibition centre, it is off the court where she truly shines. She always takes the time to engage with fans, pose for selfies, and chat with other players. Even when she didn’t achieve the medal she desired in the women’s unified doubles event, her positive attitude remained unchanged.

Daniela is passionate about promoting inclusion through sports. She writes a blog on the website of Special Olympics Deutschland (SOD) and works as an office manager for the organization. Her commitment and advocacy for inclusion were recognized when she was featured in the Tagesspiegel newspaper.

With the Berlin Games behind her, one might wonder if Daniela has enough left in her to compete in the next Special Olympics in 2027. She has been playing badminton for over 17 years and plans to continue as long as her health allows. With the support of the BWF and her coach, she hopes to participate in the Games when she’s 51.
