Biography

Carolina María Marín Martín (born 15 June 1993) is a badminton player from Spain who is currently ranked No.2 in the world by Badminton World Federation in the women's singles. She became world champion in women's singles in 2014 and 2015. She won her first women's singles gold medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics after defeating P. V. Sindhu of India.

Badminton career

Carolina started playing badminton at the IES La Orden badminton club in Huelva. In 2009 she became the first Spanish badminton player to win a silver medal first, at the 2009 European Junior Badminton Championships, and a gold medal later, at the 2009 European U17 Badminton Championships.

Carolina played for the Bangalore-based team Banga Beats in the inaugural edition of the Indian Badminton League (IBL) in 2013.

She was the first Spanish badminton player to win a Grand Prix Gold title after winning the 2013 London Grand Prix Gold.

On 31 August 2014 she defeated Li Xuerui from China in the BWF World Championships singles final and became the first Spaniard to win a World Championship title and the third European female player to achieve the gold medal, after Lene Køppen (1977) and Camilla Martin (1999). Aged only 21, she became the youngest European world champion ever.

On 8 March 2015, she won the All England, her first Superseries Premier title in her first Superseries Premier final. The title propelled her to rank number 4 in the world ranking and, for the first time, no. 1 in the Superseries standing.

At 2015 India Open, she had the chance to unseat Li Xuerui as the new world no. 1. However, she narrowly lost to Thai prodigy Ratchanok Intanon in a close three game match at the semi-final stage. Carolina rose to a career high of no.2 in the world ranking on 2 April 2015.

On 5 April 2015, Carolina Marín won her second straight Super Series Premier title, beating Olympic champion Li Xuerui for the second consecutive time at the 2015 Malaysia Open.

On 16 August 2015, she defended her title at the World Championship by beating Saina Nehwal of India in 21-16, 21-19.

On 19th August 2016, she won a gold medal by beating India's P.V Sindhu in the singles final at the 2016 Summer Olympics at Rio, Brazil with a score of 19-21, 21-12, 21-15.
