Chris Langridge teamed up with Marcus Ellis to make history at Rio 2016, becoming the first British pair to win a men’s doubles medal at the Olympic Games.
Victory over Chai Biao and Hong Wei secured the honour for Langridge, following up his triple-medal performance at the 2014 Commonwealth Games while representing England.
More was to come after the Rio bronze, with Langridge replicating the European Mixed Team Championships bronze he picked up in 2013 again in 2017, this time in Lubin.
Then, in 2018, the Surrey native – again partnered by Ellis – won men’s gold at the Commonwealth Games, becoming the first England duo to win a doubles title for 40 years.
Langridge’s England also took mixed team bronze on the Gold Coast.
