Japan’s badminton world number one Kento Momota shrugged off nerves to make a winning return to competition in Tokyo on Wednesday (Dec 23), nearly a year after suffering serious injuries in a car crash.

Momota beat Koshiro Moriguchi 21-12, 21-14 in the first round of the All-Japan championships, marking his return from the accident that left him fearing his career might be over after fracturing an eye socket.

Momota will be hoping his comeback leads him all the way to Olympic gold at next year’s coronavirus-postponed Tokyo Games, but the left-hander was happy just to be back on the court after dispatching his opponent in 36 minutes on Wednesday.

“I had that particular feeling that you get before a match, the kind where you just can’t sit still, and it’s been a while since I felt that,” Momota said.
