A 25-year-old flamboyant badminton star; she is someone whose lovely smile shows the hope and confidence of 1.3 billion plus people that she carries on her shoulder. She always rises up to the occasion and plays her best whenever gets an opportunity to do so. It won’t be wrong to say that she is now taking forward the legacy and the vision that Pullela Gopichand and legendary Prakash Padukone had set for India’s success in badminton a few decades back.

Undoubtedly, the best choice for Sportsperson of the Year 2015 goes to Saina Nehwal. Her determination and hard work has made her a household name now. She is unstoppable and keeps initiating harder and tougher targets to accomplish. She is not just a badminton player now but an inspiration for the entire young generation as a whole.

In 2015, Saina Nehwal was at her best. She saw many happy moments but witnessed near downfall too. Saina played her heart out at All England Badminton Championships 2015 before losing at the final of the tournament. She continued her stunning performance at the World Badminton Championships too and became the first female badminton player from India to reach numero uno rank.

But bad luck also followed Saina alongside the success; she lost quite a few close matches. However, the ace badminton star accomplished her share of achievement too; she reached the final of the All England Badminton Championships becoming the only women in history to be declared runner-up at such a prominent championship. Among Indian athletes, only Prakash Padukone had won the championship a few decades back in 1980. Saina Nehwal also won Indian Open Tournament a few months back in 2015.

With just a few months to go before the Rio Olympics 2016 it won’t be wrong to say that Saina Nehwal is now more determined to bring gold and lots of fame to India. Hats off to this Badminton superstar for her relentless efforts and dedication in pursuit of excellence at every match she plays.
