USA Loses an Elite Badminton Player

Aug. 12, 2013, 4:32 p.m. (ET)

USA Badminton expresses our deepest sympathies to the family of Karyn Velez, a rising badminton star and one of our country’s elite athletes. Karyn participated in the 2013 Sudirman Cup in Kuala Lampur, Malaysia and was scheduled to compete at the 2013 Pan Am Championships in October. She will surely be missed by her teammates and the badminton community.
