Good Sports: BADMINTON NUPTIALS

If badminton genes can be passed down, India may soon have some children with a high concentration of them. That’s because Saina Nehwal, 28, an Olympic bronze medalist and former world No. 1 player, and Parupalli Kashyap, 32, a Commonwealth Games gold medalist, are planning to tie the knot on Dec. 16.

Their relationship goes back a decade, as they grew close to each other while competing in badminton tournaments around the world. But it wasn’t until recently that they contemplated marriage.

“The career that we pursue is very demanding,” Nehwal told Times of India. “It is very important to win tournaments and we didn’t want to shift our focus by getting married earlier.”
