He Bingjiao is a Chinese badminton player. He was born on March 21, 1997. At the age of seven, she enrolled in the badminton programme at the Suzhou Junior Sports School.
A further five years later, she was shipped off to Nanjing for a more rigorous education and training.
The teen has already participated as a senior and made her senior international debut in the 2013 Vietnam Open.
She attended the 2014 Summer Youth Olympics, where she won the gold medal in girls’ singles and the bronze medal in mixed doubles.
Two years later, in 2021, she won a bronze medal at the World Championships.
Who is He Bing Jiao – The shuttler Who Stands Between Sindhu and a Bronze Medal?
When compared to PV Sindhu, the Chinese shuttler has a winning record.
China’s top shuttler is a 24-year-old phenom from Suzhou. A left-handed player, Xia Xuanze and Luo Yigang guide her development as a player.
Her parents are both gymnastic coaches, and at the age of five they pushed her to try badminton.
Her role models in badminton are the Chinese athletes Wang Xin, Wang Shixian, and Lin Dan. She first appeared on a global stage in 2013.
The world’s no. 9 player, Bing Jiao, has been on fire thus far in these Olympic Games. In the semi-finals at Tokyo 2020, she defeated top seed and compatriot Chen Yufei by taking a set from him.
She’s had a great run on the junior circuit, capturing multiple titles at the World Junior Championships and the Asian Junior Championships.
Furthermore, she won the gold medal at the Youth Olympic Games.
She reached the finals of the 2016 Basel Open as a senior player, and she shocked Ratchanok Intanon, PV Sindhu, and Sun Yu on the way there.
She has won multiple BWF tournaments, including one BWF World Tour title, two BWF Superseries titles, and five BWF Grand Prix titles.
At the Tokyo Games, she earned her first Olympic medal by advancing to the semifinals, where she lost to eventual gold medalist Nozomi Okuhara in three sets (13-21, 21-13, 21-14).
In spite of this, Sindhu will be wary of the Chinese player because she has a 6-9 record versus her.
The Indian won the World Championship in 2019, although she had lost to him in their previous three matchups.
The bronze medal match should also be exciting, as it features two top players who are both gunning for the podium’s third and final spot.
He Bingjiao, the number eight seed in women’s singles at the 2020 Summer Olympics, competed.
She lost in the semi-finals against Chen Yufei and then again in the bronze medal match to P. V. Sindhu, and thus placed fourth overall.
At the 2021 Sudirman Cup, she played for the Chinese national team, which ultimately triumphed. At the 2021 World Championships, she made it to the quarterfinals.
However, she ultimately fell to Tai Tzu-ying in three games (17-21, 21-13, 14-21), and she had to settle for bronze (her second World Championship medal overall).
