Gabby Adcock

Former Garforth Academy pupil Gabby and husband Chris are one of badminton’s leading mixed doubles pairs and are currently ranked fourth in the world. 2017 was another successful year for the duo as they were crowned European Champions in Denmark with a pulsating victory over local favourites Joachim Fischer Nielsen and Christinna Pedersen. They followed that up with a bronze at the World Championships in August. Now their focus will turn to the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia where the pair will be looking to retain the title they won in Glasgow in 2014.
