    Tai Tzu-ying reveals footage of elementary school badminton match (2021/04/08)

    Badminton queen Tai Tzu-ying has revealed a nearly 20-year-old video of herself playing fellow pro shuttler Wang Tzu-wei. The footage was taken when both were just in elementary school. But judging by the talent Tai and Wang showed, few adults could have bested either of them even then.

    A girl in yellow battles it out on the badminton court with a boy in white. Those powerful shots belie the age of these players who could give most adults a run for their money.

    The girl misses a shot and turns toward the camera, regretful. Recognize those features now? Yes, it's badminton queen Tai Tzu-ying when she was just a third-grader. Her opponent is Taiwan's badminton king Wang Tzu-wei in second-grade.

    Showing off her backhand net shot, Tai shows off the prowess that would later make her World No. 1. The film was taken by Wang's mother 18 years ago, and the blurry footage shows its age. But you can still get a sense of the personalities of the two budding stars. At the time, Wang was playing in tournaments a year above his age, while Tai was playing against boys instead of girls.

    And that's a habit she never gave up - here she is at the National Sports Training Center last year, beating men in a warm-up for the Tokyo Olympics.

    She has often trained with badminton veteran Chou Tien-chen, developing her powerful shots. She posted this video on social media to give fans a glimpse of the early days of the Tai phenomenon.
