Initially, the Johor Bahru-born lass picked up the sport of badminton only as her hobby.
Then at the age of 9, the middle child of three siblings started to follow her older brother who was a trained junior player. Out from that, Myisha Mohd Khairul’s love for badminton grew.
Driven by the determination of her fully supportive parents, Myisha strolled through several youth tournaments and caught Johor BA’s attention.
She was then selected as a Bukit Jalil Sports School (BJSS) player through the Talent Identification (TID) program at the age of 13. Now, this young shuttler is among the most experienced in the junior ranks.
For the year 2020, Myisha sealed a quarter final finish at the German Junior. Her biggest goal to be among to be among the world's top 10 players, is solely to make her family, friends and fans proud.
WHAT THE COACH SAID
Poh Chai Boon: “Myisha does very well in the court-covering aspect. She has the advantage of movement and stamina on court. Seeing her commitment and determination to be better every time, I believe she has the potential to be a top player. The only part that needs improving is her front court skill. It is not that bad but, if she can improve that, she will be a champion in no time.”
