Despite giving up her gold from the previous year, Anshu Malik, who competed in the women’s 57 kg division, was still deserving of mention for her silver in CWG 2022.

In CWG 2022, Vinesh successfully returned to the world stage by easily winning the 53kg gold with ease. After years of adversity, the 2016 Rio Olympics bronze medalist Sakshi Malik (62 kg) returned to the spotlight with a gold in Birmingham.

Antim Panghal, who became the first Indian to win gold at the U20 World Championships, also emerged as a new wrestler in India this year. Her victory followed the fiercely contested CWG trials, where she nearly stunned Vinesh.

Lakshya Sen was once anticipated as the next big thing in Indian badminton, but his lack of success against the big guys was quickly turning him into a failure. All of that changed this year when Sen captured his first BWF crown at the Indian Open in March and advanced to a second final by defeating Olympic Champion Viktor Axelsen at the German Open immediately thereafter.

In Birmingham, CWG, Lakshya Sen beat Malaysia’s Tze Young NG 19-21 21-9 21-16 to win the gold medal in badminton men’s singles.
