Upon Susan’s decision to retire from international badminton following her participation as a member of Team GB at the London 2012 Olympic Games...
Anne Smillie, Chief Executive of BADMINTON Scotland, led the tributes when she said (24/10/12),
"We are sorry to lose Susan from competition but I am sure that we won’t be losing her from the sport she has served so well. She has carried the responsibility of being Scotland’s top women’s singles player in tournaments and team events for a long time and has been an inspiration to the crop of young players looking to follow in her footsteps.
It is a pity that she could not extend her career long enough to collect her 100th Scotland cap but I can fully understand why she feels the time is right to retire now and everyone at BADMINTON Scotland joins me in wishing her well in the future. She has been an outstanding servant to Scottish badminton."
