World Champion, Olympic medalist, European Champion, Commonwealth Games and All-England Champion, England's Nathan Robertson is no doubt one of the most decorated mixed doubles player in the history of English badminton.
Robertson, who had won the silver medal at the 2004 Athens Olympic Games with his former mixed doubles partner Gail Emms, is hoping to have a last shot at gold at the 2012 London Olympic Games with his current mixed doubles partner Jenny Wallwork. The 34-year-old veteran from Nottingham will however face stiff competition for a qualification spot in London 2012 from the reigning silver medalist at the 2011 World Championships, Chris Adcock and Imogen Bankier.
Making his international debut for England at the age of 18 after playing the sport for 12 years, Robertson was also a men's doubles specialist where he had teamed up with his good friend Anthony Clark to win a silver medal at the 2010 Commonwealth Games. The duo also picked up one of the twelve prestigious BWF World Superseries titles in Singapore in the 2009 season. This remains as England's best performance at the Superseries since the series took off in 2007.
Outside of his badminton career, Robertson enjoys a game of golf and poker, watching films and socialising. Robertson is also a father to his teenage daughter, Neve, who has been a source of inspiration to him as is his coach Andy Wood. CR
