India’s biggest medal hope Lakshya Sen had to settle for the bronze medal at the BWF World Junior Championships 2018 in Markham, Canada, after losing his semi-final to the top seed Kunlavut Vitidsarn of Thailand. The fourth-seeded Sen squandered a one-game lead to succumb to a 22-20, 16-21, 13-21 defeat in 1 hour 11 minutes.

This was India’s fifth boys singles bronze medal at the BWF World Junior Championships and the only medal India got at this year’s Championships.

Previously, RMV Gurusaidutt (2008), B Sai Praneeth (2010), HS Prannoy (2010) and Sameer Verma (2011) have won the bronze medal. Siril Verma (2015) is India’s only boys singles silver-medallist at the World Junior Championships.

Saina Nehwal (2008) remains India’s sole gold medallist at the BWF World Junior Championships. She also won a silver two years before that in girls singles.
