Saina Nehwal : Indian Badminton Champ!

If you haven't watched a Brit, Pakistani or Indian play Badminton, you haven't really seen Badminton.
.
They play with zeal, speed and a killer instinct that is miles away from the picnic pickup game that most Americans grew up with.
.
This is Saina Nehwal, 2nd or 3rd ranking woman's player in the world and a celebrity in her home country of India.  She represented the country at the Beijing Olympics and will do so again in London.

.
I played a little when I was working in England.  What I thought would be a boring lunch hour hit around, turned into a in-your-face duel to the death that I quickly fell out of.  (We played round robin, and it was like my turn was a second rest period for the 2 guys).
.
Saina, a lovely young lady also is a minor celebrity and the traditional picture is from India's Fashion Week.

Yes...REAL badminton is incredibly fun to watch versus the hacks at the family reunion. I actually have a friend from years ago that won the gold medal at the Gay Games. I never knew he was into badminton until he had info about it on "The Facebook"
