USA Badminton is proud to announce para-badminton athletes Miles Krajewski (Yankton, SD) and Jayci Simon (Saint Johns, MI) have qualified for the Paris 2024 Summer Paralympic Games. The pair completed the 15-month qualifying period on March 31, 2024 and finished in the final qualifying spot for SH6 (Short Stature) Mixed Doubles.

Krajewski, 18, has been playing para-badminton since 2016 and narrowly missed qualifying in SH Men’s Singles in the Tokyo 2020 Summer Paralympic Games. Simon, 19, started playing para-badminton in 2018 and burst onto the world stage once it was announced that SH6 Women’s Singles and Mixed Doubles would be added to the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games.

By qualifying directly into Mixed Doubles, Krajewski and Simon will also be able to compete in their respective singles events. Krajewski is currently ranked No. 7 in Men’s Singles and Simon is currently ranked No. 14 in Women’s Singles.

Para-badminton competition will take place between August 29, 2024 and September 2, 2024 at the Porte de la Chapelle Arena in Paris.
