BWF profile

Nicole Grether (born 17 October 1974) is a female badminton player from Germany.

Career[edit]

Grether competed in badminton at the 2004 Summer Olympics in women's doubles with partner Juliane Schenk. They defeated Michelle Edwards and Chantal Botts of South Africa in the first round but were defeated by Ann-Lou Jørgensen and Rikke Olsen of Denmark in the round of 16.

As of 2011, she now represents Canada with her partner Charmaine Reid.[1] However, due to Grether still holding a German passport, the duo has been unable to compete as a Canadian team in a number of events.[2] This issue has prevented the pair from qualifying to the 2012 Summer Olympics.
