Saina Nehwal confirms wedding with Parupalli Kashyap



Ace shuttler Saina Nehwal has confirmed her wedding date with badminton player Parupalli Kashyap. The duo will get married on December 16 this year, as that is the only day in Saina’s calendar when she will be free from her otherwise hectic training schedule.

Speaking to TOI, Saina said that she will be occupied with Premier Badminton League December 20 onwards, soon after which the Tokyo Games qualifiers will begin. “So this was the only date that we had to get married,” she said.

Saina talked about her and Parupalli’s decade-long relationship and their journey until deciding to get married.



The duo started travelling for bigger tours around 2007-08, which meant that they trained together, played tournaments together and with time, started paying more attention to each other’s game.

Arpinder Singh becomes first Indian to win medal in IAAF Continental Cup @ArpinderSingh18

There was a familiar face cheering Arpinder Singh on behind the triple jump area at the Gelora Bung Karno stadium on Wednesday. It was Tajinderpal Singh Toor, the shot putter who had won India's first athletics gold at these Asian Games. During Toor's event, Arpinder, who is his Games village roommate, had been in the stands behind him, doing a Facebook live of the event, providing live commentary to his fans. Now it was Toor's turn to return the favour.


He would jump a new personal best 17.19 at the Inter-State Athletics championships in order to qualify for the Asian Games. And although he wasn't able to get a national record like he had hoped, Arpinder is still more than happy with a gold medal. How does he plan to celebrate? With a photo session of course. That's #bobstyle.
