  • Dmitriy Panarin currently ranks 31st, while the national badminton team ranks 25th overall with 2,695 points.

  • Since January, the athlete has competed in eleven events, including the 32nd Iran Fajr International Challenge in Yazd, the Selangor Badminton Asia Team Championships 2024 in the Malaysian city of Shah Alam, the Yonex German Open 2024 in Mülheim an der Ruhr, the Badminton Asia Championships 2024 in the Chinese city of Ningbo, and others.
