I'm better prepared than Rio Olympics: Marin
Glasgow: Eyeing a hat-trick of titles at the World Championship, defending champion Carolina Marin says she is better prepared than the Rio Olympics where the shuttler had clinched the gold medal. "It's been two months of preparation; I've prepared better than I had before the Rio Olympics," Marin told reporters here. "My main aim is to fight for gold. I have some tough matches coming up but I'm not thinking of the title defence. I will take it match by match." After the Rio Games, Marin had to deal with nagging ailments on her thigh and they affected her performance as she could not win a title. The Spaniard conceded two walkovers and also saw her ranking drop to No.4. " After the Olympics, I had injuries, it was frustrating. Now I'm playing well again," said the former World No. 1.
