Cuban badminton player Osleni Guerrero, ranking leader of America, will compete in the World Championships in Copenhagen from next August 25 to 31.
Guerrero, 57 in the world rankings, aims to take revenge on the setback in the first round of the preceding universal competition in Guangzhou, China, played last year. On that occasion he was defeated by Spanish Pablo Abián in two runs for 14-21 and 21-23.
The Cuban climbed to a place among the top 50 of the world in November, after a great season in 2013, when he won nine titles, achieved over 40 victories and only suffered five setbacks, including the one in the Asian competition.
However, in this season he lost unexpectedly the singles final of the tournament Giraldilla, won by Bjorn Seguin (United States), and later he retained the title in the International of Peru.
According to his coach Roberto Moyinedo, the main objective of Guerrero will be the 2014 Central American and Caribbean Games Veracruz 2014, from November 14 to 30.
