Pia Nielsen stepped onto the international badminton scene at a very young age, as she became the champion in women’s singles at the European Youth Championship in 1975.
In 1983 the World Championship was held in Denmark, and it was at this occasion that Pia Nielsen and Steen Fladberg made it all the way to the final, and even though they had to make due with a silver medal it was the greatest achievement of Pia’s career.
Back in 1978 Pia had also won the National Championship in women’s doubles with Inge Borgstrom, and prior to the World Championship she and Steen Fladberg also won the mixed doubles title at the National Championship for amateurs.
Furthermore, Pia took home the Nordic Championship in women’s doubles with Lene Køppen as many as three times from 1976 to 1981.
