Rise and shine! (Or rise and dark?) Liwen starts her morning early, at just 6:18 a.m. After getting out of bed, brushing her teeth and changing into her badminton uniform, she and her ISB homestay athletes (Prong Danchaivichit and Nisha Chaiyapatranun) eat their breakfast. What’s on the menu today? McDonald’s Hotcakes.
7:11 a.m. and out the door they go! Athletes are expected to get to SAS by 8 a.m..
Liwen’s first game of the day is at 10:30, so about an hour before, she’s getting ready and warming up. How to spot a SAS girl badminton player? The red hair ribbon! Athletes are in and out of their uniform, but most of the girls keep the red ribbon on for good luck and team spirit!

SAS vs. ISM! (Spoiler: SAS wins!)
Before heading to the gym to cheer on the SAS boys’ badminton match against JIS, Liwen and a few SAS badminton girls grab some lunch in the HS caf.
Like many other athletes: Liwen’s injured. Throughout the day, she’s been getting her shoulder checked and taped up by Tomo.
The girls support the boys in their game against JIS. (Spoiler: SAS wins again!)
The SAS girls begin warming up and getting ready for their game.
Since Liwen’s not playing for the rest of the day, so she cheered on her homestay buddies, Nisha (pictured above) and Prong for their games that evening.
