In badminton, promising Indian shuttlers Varun Kapur and Samiya Imad Farooqui along with four other Indians have confirmed Top-10 spots in the latest world junior rankings of Badminton World Federation (BWF).
 
Starting 2021 on a high, Varun moved four places ahead in the men’s rankings while Samiya took a six-spot jump as the youngsters achieved their career-best junior rankings and became World No. 2.
 
Varun had a great run last year as he picked his sixth junior title when he won the XII Portuguese International-2020 in November. While the 17-year-old Hyderabadi, a U-15 Asian Badminton Championship winner, Samiya has been one of the consistent performers at the junior circuit.
 
The BWF rankings released earlier this week, especially in the women singles category, saw Indian domination with three more shuttlers-Tasnim Mir (4), Treesa Jolly (8) and Aditi Bhatt (10)-earning themselves a place in the Top-10.
 
In the women’s doubles category, Tressa (8), Tanisha Crasto (9) and Aditi (9) are among the Indians who are placed in Top-10.

Earlier, BWF had frozen the world junior rankings as of March 17, 2020, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic.
