    Early Days

    Saina initially started off with Karate, reaching the brown belt; but quit at the age of eight when she was asked to have a motorcycle run over her stomach. She later dedicated all her attention to badminton, which she practised at the Faculty Club of Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University.

    Olympic Prospects

    Saina is the part of the Olympic Gold Quest, a program founded by former Indian athletes Geet Sethi and Prakash Padukone. The OGQ is aimed at supporting promising athletes who will be representing India in the 2012 Olympics. Being a world No.5 badminton player, Saina will definitely face tough competition as she will be facing world No.3, Li Xuerui, her arch rival on the court. It'll be a tough battle for her, and we truly hope she nails it this time around and brings home the coveted Olympic gold!
