Saina Nehwal's badminton heroics
Saina Nehwal has been a stalwart of the sport in India. She has several achievements under her belt and has earned several plaudits for her performances. She was the first female shuttler from India to grab a medal at the Olympics. Nehwal had won the bronze medal at the women’s singles event at the London Olympics in 2012. Presently, Nehwal is jostling for a Tokyo Olympic spot. Her rank is 22 and only 16 qualify for the marquee event. Fitness has been a major concern for Nehwal as she has been battling out niggles for a considerable period of time.
