Badminton star Saina Nehwal accused the sport’s administrators of placing money above players’ safety by continuing last week’s All England Championships despite the Covid-19 pandemic.

Indian badminton star Saina Nehwal has accused the sport’s administrators of placing money above players’ safety by continuing last week’s All England Championships despite the Covid-19 pandemic. “Only thing I can think of is that rather than the players welfare and feelings, financial reasons were given more importance. Otherwise there was no other reason for the #AllEnglandOpen2020 to go on last week,” she tweeted.

“Only thing I can think of is that rather than the players welfare n feelings, financial reasons were given more importance. Otherwise there was no other reason for the #AllEnglandOpen2020 to go on last week,” she tweeted.

The 30-year-old lost in the opening round of the marquee event, which was among a handful which continued even as the bulk of global sporting calendar was either postponed or cancelled.

Saina’s Olympic qualification has been severely jeopardised by the early loss in Birmingham. The Badminton World Federation put a halt to all its events on the day the event got over.

Meanwhile, former India badminton coach Vimal Kumar is extremely disappointed with the way Indonesian doubles coach Flandy Limpele left abruptly in an Olympic year and said foreign appointees must be held accountable for departing without completing their tenures.
