Carolina Marin becomes first European to win two World Badminton Championships  
Published on 15/08/2015     Source : Sofa Score

For the second year in row, the world no. 1, Spanish player Carolina Marin, becomes the World Champion in badminton, beating the Indian Saina Nechwal in straight sets (21-16, 21-19).

The Spanish player added to her tally in trophies, becoming a legend of the sport in the progress, continuing this year in Jakarta what she had begun a year earlier in Copenhagen – once again giving Europe a world champion in a sport very much dominated by Asia.

Last year in Dennmark Carolina Marin already forged a historic day for Spanish and European badminton, as no player from Europe achieved gold medal at World Championship in the last 15 years. However, the world no. 1 went even further this year, as 16 Aug of 2015 will go down in history as the day when a European, for the first time, conquered the world for the second time. So far, two titles have only been managed by three Chinese players: Li Linweng (1983 and 1989), Han Aiping (1985 and 1987) and Xie Xingfang (2005 and 2006).

The success is even greater for Carolina Marin when one gets to know she struggled even to come to Jakarta and defend her title, due to lack of preparation caused by the right foot injury in early July. And even being able to play at the end, Marin started with doubts and and a hard-fought victory against the Malaysian Jing Yi Tee. But the Spanish player he grew as the days passed by and raised her game to defeat all her biggest rivals: Pai Yu Po in the second round, the Chinese Wang Shixian in the quarterfinal, the Korean Sung in three sets in semifinal, before finally facing the Indian Saina Nehwal.

Marin played some of her best badminton and managed to beat the world no. 2, holder of a bronze at Olympics 2012, in just one hour, winning in straight sets (21-16 and 21-19), thus demonstrating why she holds world no. 1 spot. Marin and Nehwal played against each other four times before this match, but Marin won only once – in the last March at the All England.

However, the Spanish player was determined to defend her title and did so, playing very aggressively and making a decisive run at the middle of the second set, where she turned aroun 6-12 to 13-12, never looking back afterwards.

In Men’s singles, title was won by the Chinese Chen Long, who defended his Copenhagen title as well, winning against the Malaysian Lee Chong Wei in the final.
