BWF Badminton World Federation’s Integrity Unit was formed five years ago. During this time BWF’s integrity effort via the awareness campaign called ‘i am badminton’ has been in the front-line.
The campaign extends a platform from which players express their fondness and admiration for badminton by expressing and committing to play cleanly and honestly.
BWF announced that a new list of Badminton’s international shinning stars from the World Tour and Para circuit have been included in the list. These include:
- Pusarla V. Sindhu – India
- Michelle Li – Canada
- Zheng Si Wei – China

- Valeska Knoblauch – Germany
- Chan Ho Yuen – Hongkong
- Marc Zwiebler – Athletes’ Commission Chair – Germany
