序:

I have had role models – both as a person and as a badminton player – all my life. Ever since I started training badminton as a young boy in my home town of Odense, Denmark, there have been people I’ve looked up to. People who have inspired me. People who, in different ways, have served as living proof that you can reach all your goals if you work hard.

 

To this day, I continue to draw strength and inspiration from powerful personalities in my sport. First and foremost, from people who give me the motivation to tackle the challenges facing me and to keep on working. And believing. Goh Liu Ying is one of these people. So I was truly honoured when she asked if I would pen the introduction to this book.  Over the past few years, I have had the privilege of following Goh’s career and results “up close and personal”, as we participate in many of the same tournaments around the world. The human and sporting qualities and the incredible strength of character she has demonstrated time and time again have served to raise my respect for Goh to new heights.  As a badminton player myself, I know that the path is not always smooth. That you will hit “bumpy patches” when your game deserts you. Periods when your body simply takes a time-out and refuses to do what you want it to. Back in 2014 when I heard that Goh had had surgery on her knee, I feared the worst. Because during my years in the world of badminton I have seen knee injuries put an end to far too many active and promising careers. So it was truly inspiring to see Goh make such an impressive comeback, underlining once again her peerless strength of will and her commitment to giving her all – both on and off the court.

 

Recovering from such a serious injury and operation is a praiseworthy performance in and of itself, on a par with even the finest results Goh and her partner Chan Peng Soon have achieved thus far in their impressive career. For example, it was an unforgettable experience to watch Goh and Chan playing the Olympic final in Brazil. Their historic silver medal performance stands out in my mind as one of the finest symbols of strength in the face of adversity. I also know that Goh and Chan’s performance not only delighted the players themselves, but also spread a well-deserved feeling of pride throughout Malaysia.  There is so much more to being a badminton player than simply having the ability to hit a shuttlecock over a net. The role actually carries a huge responsibility – an ever-present weight that you have to shoulder day after day after day. Every year, I get to experience first-hand how much badminton means to the people of Malaysia, and I am delighted on behalf of Goh and all the other Malaysian players, because I know that every match they play at every tournament inspires and motivates hundreds of thousands of badminton players of all ages. Goh’s own story is sure to inspire every young reader who harbours ambitions of one day travelling the world and making a living from playing badminton. But it will do much more than that. I have no doubt that whether or not you play badminton yourself, you will find inspiration in this book to take a new and focused approach to a variety of areas of your life.

 

No matter who you are, you will inevitably encounter times when things don’t turn out as intended. And I hope that reading Goh’s story will inspire you and instil in you the belief that if you work single-mindedly and actively seek out opportunities when things aren’t going your way, you will come out the other side a stronger and wiser person.  I hope you enjoy this wonderful book!

吴柳莹只是吴柳莹,很平凡的一个女子,“平凡”只是很平凡的两个字,单凭两个字能说的很有限。柳莹小时成绩平平,不爱读书,甚至逃学,连选择羽球之路部分原因也是为了逃离课堂。如果我是她老师,大概也会判定此女难有作为。

 

她说想出书,于是约见。初见小吴,她话不多,都是弟弟和朋友帮腔。我以为她不是害羞便是骄傲,和判定一个人平凡一样,都是很片面、很武断的。后来聊开,原来她自认不善言辞,故而话少。她像个小孩一样,怕生,突如其来的名气让她常常被认出,那些过于热情的靠近会让她不自在。见面时我喝啤酒,她不敢,怕被谁看到又多生是非。书名是她定的,想表达的是她只是平凡的吴柳莹,说说她如何一路走来,而在我看来,她的确成就了不凡的事情,这是怎么发生的呢?

 

小吴的书是我第一次真正为作者做编辑工作,在此之前对运动界的认识近乎零,小吴的事迹和成绩我一无所知。第一次看见她,是无意间看到那两场奥运羽球赛直播。我完全不是小吴的粉丝,因此对她只是抱着客观的好奇,她的人生路上究竟做对了什么?做错了什么?把她引领上成功的方向?还是根本无所谓对错呢?我辈何尝不是平凡人,从小吴的故事里头能学到什么呢?

 

“辛苦”只是两个字,当我们说运动员训练辛苦,其实我们完全不懂个中滋味。“受伤”也是两个字,“痛苦”也是;“迷茫”是两个字,“挣扎”也是;“压力”只是两个字,“勇气”也是。平常表面的报导,从来无法具体让读者感受运动员的经历。羽球就是柳莹的全部,双膝受伤等同在人生敲出裂痕;要在纷纷扰扰的意见中毅然决定在双膝动刀,又是何等果敢?况且复健顺利与否,没人说得准。我近距离听小吴的经历,让我感动不已。外界有太多对小吴的误解,尤其那些在网上无的放矢的酸民,实在对她太不公平。作为编辑,我要帮小吴好好说故事;作为出版人,我必须把这些能量传达给读者。

 

吴柳莹只是吴柳莹,突然吴柳莹不只是吴柳莹,她象征绽放的梦想、国家的荣耀。平凡的人,坚持做平凡的事,做到极致突然就不平凡了。我恳切希望读者能从小吴的故事中,发现自己的梦想原来也触手可及——平凡的我们,原来都可以不平凡。

 

“梦想”不过是两个字,“胜利”也是。
