Saina Nehwal Clinch Silver : World Badminton Championship 2015
Saina Nehwal, the first Indian to play the finals of World Badminton Championship and winning a Silver Medal.
Sheer hard word and dedication has ranked her World No. 2 in the badminton field. And putting up a good game against the World No 1. Carolina Marin (Spain) at the finals in Indonesia, to win the silver medal. A little away from gold, with every hope for winning it the next time.
Apart from the previously Bronze Medal winners of India, since the World Badminton Championship started in 1977:
- Bronze at 1983 Copenhagen: Prakash Padukone (men’s singles)
- Bronze at 2011 London: Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponnappa (women’s doubles)
- Bronze at 2013 Guangzhou (China): PV Sindhu (women’s singles)
- Bronze at 2014 Copenhagen: PV Sindhu (women’s singles)
Hope and inspiration for all the young Indian sport lovers and players, which does not limit them only to cricket and hockey. But the likes of badminton, shooting, tennis, football, wrestling, archery and many more.
Pursuing the dream to make it big and the country proud.
Congratulations, Saina Nehwal and we Indians assured that the gold will come home soon.
