Madrid, Aug 7 (CNMSports) Spanish badminton star Carolina Marin said early on Tuesday that she hoped to win the Princess of Asturias Award, after becoming the badminton player with the highest number of world championships in history.
"I wish I have enough support, it would be another dream to get the Princess of Asturias," Marin said upon arrival at the Madrid airport after her latest World Badminton Championship conquest on August 5, reports EFE news agency.
Marin beat India's P.V. Sindhu (21-19, 21-10) in the final round, a player who was also her opponent in the final of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
The Spanish athlete also noted that the key to winning her third world championship was to recover mentally having been out of action in the last year and a half.
