by | August 27, 2019

The 2019 BWF World Championships ended on August 25, 2019 in Basel, Switzerland and it featured 68 athletes from 40 countries all competing for the top spot.

Men’s Singles

Old habits die hard for Japan’s Kento Momota, who successfully defended his 2018 BWF World Championship gold medal against Switzerland’s own Anders Antonsen, and won the 2019 Men’s Singles tournament solidifying his #1 world ranking. The match lasted 38 minutes, with Momota winning 21-9 and 21-3.

Sai Praneeth Bhamidipati of India took the bronze medal.

Women’s Singles

After being a mainstay in the World Championships since 2013, Pusarla V. Sindhu‘s talent lead her to the top position as she earned her first World Championship gold medal in Women’s Singles. She now has one gold medal, two silver medals, and two bronze medals in the category.

Sustained National or International Acclaim
