Peruvian Giuliana Poveda ranks first in the Para-Badminton World Ranking Singles' SS 6 (Short Stature) category, according to the latest update on the classification.

Thus, she has managed to dethrone Para-Badminton World Championship 2017's winner Rachel Choong (England).

She claimed three medals (gold, silver, and bronze) at the FZ Forza Irish Para-Badminton International 2018; two (gold and bronze) at the VII Spanish Para-Badminton International 2018, and two more (gold and silver) at the Brazil Para-Badminton International 2018
