Hugh Forgie was a world class badminton player.For half a century, starting in 1935, Hugh Forgie chased the feathered shuttlecock to the far corners of the globe. "I did for badminton what the Harlem Globetrotters did for basketball," Forgie once said. In fact, for a while he was the Globetrotters' halftime show.He became world pro champ in 1941 and didn't lose a match for another 11 years. But the end of World War II marked the end of big-time badminton.Forgie stopped performing in 1985, at 73.
