It's a big first for her ... and for all the other parabadminton players, for that matter.

This year, the sport is entering the Tokyo 2021 Paralympic Games.

At 27, Rennaise Faustine Noël already has a well-rounded record with a silver medal at the world championships but also two titles at the European championships.

Suffering from a neuromotor handicap, she explains how to manage it with climbs in the net or other moments of play.  

Faustine is ready to do battle.

She will compete on all three tables: women's singles, ladies' doubles and mixed doubles.

Beyond the championship, the Olympics are for her the opportunity to change the way people look at disability.
