Catch Saina Nehwal this week on BIG CBS PRIME’s India’s Prime Icon , a show that aims to select the true idol of the country. This episode highlights Saina’s incredible success story.  

Speaking about Saina’s journey to the top, former National-level Badminton champion and her celebrated coach P. Gopichand said, “I remember we would set targets for the year and by the end of March, we always ended up re-adjusting those goals, whether it would be breaking into the top 50, the top 10 or top 5, because she would always reach her target much earlier than we had initially planned. Her urge to win is evident from the fact that she started winning her under-19 tournaments at the age of 13 and women’s tournaments at the age of 15.”

 Saina has also received much praise and appreciation from various sports personalities including  Sachin Tendulkar, who said, “Saina’s Olympic medal means a lot to India. I’m sure this medal has not come without dedication, hard work, focus and vision. I am quite confident that her best is yet to come and she will emerge victorious across the world and that is what we want.” 

Watch this episode tonight at 9.30 p.m. on BIG CBS PRIME.
