After a lacklustre showing in 2014, Saina, playing under a new coach Vimal Kumar, came storming back, winning the silver at the All England Championships and then finishing runners-up at the World Championships in Jakarta, that also propelled her to the top of the World rankings. Now as she enters her third Olympics, Saina will be looking to add yet another Olympic medal and hopefully the colour will change from bronze to Gold at Rio.
