Bangalore: Basking in glory after winning a bronze at the London Olympics, star shuttler Saina Nehwal says it was very tough for her to win the medal in a sport dominated by the Chinese.
"It was very tough for me to achieve this because I think in badminton every one knows Chinese are the best, they have like 9-10 players (at the top level). And it's very tough to fight against them," she said after nutrition company Herbalife felicitated her and M C Mary Kom for their feats.
Saina said she felt proud of herself as she became the first Indian to win a bronze in badminton at Olympics. "This (winning the bronze) is a great motivation for me and this will really help me do well in the future."
