Badminton infographic: power differences between men and women

An article published by Dutch Badminton described the dilemma of training girls the same way as boys. It argues for specific training that takes into account the fact that women have less power in the legs in addition to less upper body strength. It points out women will receive from a more neutral start position and will take more steps to get to the shuttle as a result of key physiological differences. Hmmm food for thought.
