Robinson, Riviera at Mexico camp


Share post:

SENIOR NATIONAL PLAYERS Gavin Robinson and Monyata Riviera have begun their road to the Pan American Games in Lima, Peru, with a two-week training camp in Mexico.

Last Sunday, the two joined players from 16 countries for the camp supported by Pan Am Sports and Badminton Pan Am, two entities geared towards assisting players to raise their standard of play as they compete at this year’s games.

Before leaving the island for the camp, Robinson, 18, who recently transitioned to senior competition, said he was eager to work on his mental game.

“I would like to work on the mental aspect on the court. I just need to be a lot more relaxed,” he said.

Reflecting on his men’s final match against this year’s champion Andre Padmore, Robinson said he lost his confidence because he was facing an experienced opponent.
