New Delhi: Krishna Nagar, a para-badminton player from Jaipur in Rajasthan, was allotted Paralympic Games quota place in men’s singles short stature 6 (MS SH 6) category on Monday by the Badminton World Federation (BWF).
“It is a big achievement for me. I have been training hard for the past one year and earning a ticket for the Tokyo Paralympic Games is like a dream come true,” the 22-year-old Nagar told IANS from Lucknow.
“I am attending a camp in Lucknow. The facilities are good in the camp and I hope rigorous training sessions in coming weeks would further polish my skills,” he said.
Para-badminton players Tarun (SL 4) and Pramod Bhagat (SL 3) have also qualified for Paralympics in their respective groups.
Last month, para-badminton player Palak Kohli had also qualified for Tokyo Paralympics Games starting August 24.
Palak, 18, will pair with veteran badminton player Parul Parmar in the women’s doubles event SL3-SU5 category for the Paralympic Games.
