Linda is a talented European competitor in badminton from Bulgaria. After five very successful years in Denmark (ranked 55th in the world), she got a very serious knee injury and a piece of the cartilage of her knee joint was removed surgically. As a result of the injury, her left knee, which is also her active knee (she is left-handed), could not bend and endure loading at more than 90 degrees. Her doctor told her that this was the end of her professional sport career.

Looking for a strength and conditioning coach, she found Milko Georgiev and he took over her recovery. From the very beginning, even though she was on the way out of the Top 100, Milko had the ambition to get her back in the world sport and to build a condition that will bring her more success than she had had before the injury.

After 10 months working with Milko, Linda is with a fully recovered functioning left knee. Now she has an excellent strength and condition preparation, which allows her to achieve success with her high sport-specific technical skills.

In July 2010 Linda entered Top-30 for the first time and in March 2011 she reached 26th place in the Badminton World Ranking. Today, 10 years after the injury, Linda is still in the Top-30 in the world.
