on Tuesday morning entered Carsten Mogensen into a store in his community, and was immediately recognized.
- You are as him badmintonspilleren, was the reaction.
Yes. It is Carsten Mogensen. But he is no longer badmintonspilleren on the biggest scenes in the world. And he is no longer badmintonspilleren from the national team.
Carsten Mogensen is the former. On Tuesday came the announcement from the Badminton Denmark, he is stopped. After 19 years of age.
the 36-year-old Mogensen himself has said stop. Connected had plans for new double-constellations, and the vision we had for the veteran, did not vote in line with the he had himself.
this is Why the days are now different than they used to be.
he says with a laugh, to Ekstra Bladet.
I can feel that I just should not be allowed to go and get used to it. It is strange not to have træningstøjet on in the morning. In the morning I had time to play with my son, and I was a district on the kindergarten playground, when I delivered him, he says.
How to wont it not to be.
He had time to go into a business where he would otherwise have been on the runways in Brøndby Hallen. That play other now.
- of course It is special. It is the da. But it is my own decision, and I stand by, he says.
Badminton Denmark's plans to pair him with a younger player, who then had to be learned up by the experienced world star, flugtede not with the thoughts, Carsten Mogensen, had himself.
He wanted more. If it should be.
- They would like to make use of my experience. But I'm not in a place where I want to start all over again. The ambitions and dreams I had for the rest of his career, I thought not I could get settled, he says, and refers to the OLYMPIC games in 2024 in Paris.

Although he for the time, with all probability, would be alderspræsident, has Carsten Mogensen believed that he would be able to cope with it.
- the Motivation was there. The health was there. The body was there. So I had hoped to get a serious shot, as the Boe and I got, he says and adds: - It's damn strange.
He does not hide that it is a little strange that it all petered out after a workout in Brøndby.
- With the career, Mathias (Boe, ed.) and I have had, had it been fine, if his career was connected with an OLYMPICS, a WORLD championships, at the All England or one of the other big tournaments, that means something. Not after a workout in the Brøndby Hall, he says.
His career, which includes two All-England-triumphs, an OLYMPIC final and a WORLD cup final and 16 (!) Super Series-titles – for now to mention the highlights, are some of the finest, a Danish sportmand has lingered on this side of the millennium.
his Career also featured an aneurysm in the brain during EM to hold for more than four years ago. Something that could have cost him both the mobility and life. But not him. Carsten Mogensen got off lightly, was hospitalized for a long time in Kazan but came quietly to the war, and managed, almost miraculously, to take to the OLYMPICS in Rio de Janeiro a few months later.
- I would, of course, preferably up and play at the top level again. When you have tried to play on the biggest scenes, so is the ambition, of course, also then, he says, and adds, that it certainly was not realistic with the possibilities, associated gave him.
All doublespillere has been summoned to a meeting with the responsible trainer. Here was talked about, that had to be replaced companions, and all were given the opportunity to make suggestions for future companions. Also Carsten Mogensen.
- Since I have not been to a meeting.
- I had hoped that maybe they had taken me with on advice. But it has not happened.
He adds, however, that there is acidic mines. On the contrary.
Now it is much less badminton. He has, however, concluded an agreement for next season with the history of the Danish champions from Skovshoved in Badmintonligaen.
- I is not going to stop completely, for it is the skidesjovt to play badminton, he says.
What more needs to be done, by Carsten Mogensen are not. Yet. He welcomes, however, that he has some very good friends who have tried to stand in exactly the situation he finds himself in.
I have spoken with both mr. Fischer and Mathias Boe about it. They say: Try to hear. It will be so good. You are going to thrive, he says.
he does already. Even if everyday life is another. But now he has time to go in shops from time to time.
- Which recognizes me still. I'm either him badmintonspilleren, or him badmintonspilleren with the head. So it goes on enough for a while yet, he says with a laugh.
