Shubhankar Dey, born on 6th June 1993, is an astounding badminton player with a current ranking of 64 (as of 30/11/2017). Shubhankar who ran away from his home to purse Badminton as a career, has an unmatched love for the sport. His first International win was in the year 2013 at the age of 19.

Having lost his father a year earlier, Shubhankar was brought up by his mother and elder brother. Having already made up his mind to go after the sport, he left his hometown (Kolkata) to go to his sister’s place in Thane who actively supported him and started training. Since then his journey properly began. Soon he started playing with and against some of India’s top badminton players. His coach even said that Shubhankar has the potential to be Top 30 in the world.

Dey is currently playing for a Danish club in Copenhagen - a city that he has moved to.
