Jesper Bie

Jesper Bie became Danish Youth Champion in men’s singles in 1938, and when he was only 17 years old he reached the final as the first Dane at the All England Championships in London in 1938.
 
Jesper Bie became the first player to “stun” the badminton world with the high badminton-standard that Denmark had obtained. He had, however, to hand over the title to Britain’s best player at the time, Ralph Nicholis, and Jesper Bie never became All England Champion.
