Viktor Axelsen of Denmark is dominating the men’s singles competition. He went on to win his second world title in 2022 after winning gold at Tokyo 2020. Anders Antonsen, his teammate, will also be a favorite. Momota Kento, a double world champion from Japan, will be looking to get back on track after failing to advance past the first round at Tokyo 2020 as the top seed.

In 2022, the Spanish shuttler won her sixth European title, but she was unable to advance past the quarterfinals of the World Championships that same year. At the Worlds, Yamaguchi Akane of Japan defeated CHEN Yufei of the People’s Republic of China, the defending Olympic champion, to take home the gold medal.
