Carolina Marín wins 3rd world badminton

Carolina Marín is already living history of badminton and Spanish sport after winning her third world title in the final held on Sunday in Nanjing (China), against the Indian Pusarla Venkata Sindhu. The duel, which resulted in a reissue of the Olympic final that Marín, originally from Huelva, also took, was more comfortable than expected. After an equal and great first set, in the second Marín imposed her tactical, technical and psychological superiority to finally sweep her rival (21-19 and 21-10) and make history.
