Australian Para Badminton Player Caitlin Dransfield Excited for Tokyo Paralympic Games

Australian women’s singles SL4 player Caitlin Dransfield is filled with excitement as she prepares for her first Paralympic Games in Tokyo. Dransfield describes her emotions as a mix of relief and overwhelming joy upon learning that she will be representing Australia on the Paralympic stage.

Transitioning from tennis to Para badminton in 2015, Dransfield has dedicated herself to the sport and has become a force to be reckoned with. As the 2018 Oceania Championships title winner, she is eager to experience the Paralympic Village and soak in the atmosphere of the Games.

Dransfield is looking forward to not only her own matches but also supporting her close friends Cathrine Rosengren and Megan Hollander. She hopes that one of them will bring home a gold medal. Despite the challenges posed by COVID-19 restrictions, Dransfield has used the extra time to improve her game and focus on her goal of qualifying for the Paralympics.

With her dedication and hard work, Dransfield has significantly improved her skills since her last international event. She aims to surprise her opponents and show them her competitive spirit. Beyond representing Australia, Dransfield hopes to inspire other Para players in the Oceania region, including Grant Manzoney, as they strive for greatness.
