The world of para badminton has a new star to look forward to!
Yashveer Goyal has brought honour to Bathinda district in Punjab by winning silver and bronze medals in the double and individual categories in the 9th Punjab State Deaf Badminton Championship. The event was organized in Chandigarh.
Yashveer, who is not even 19 years old, has been selected for the national badminton championship, which is likely to be held in Maharashtra this year.
This was Yashveer’s first attempt in the state championship, and he is off to a brilliant start. He will play in individual and double categories in the national badminton championship.
Yashveer played six matches in the championship and won four matches easily. He lost two matches to players, who were much older than he is.
Yashveer was in the news earlier for being the only boy from Punjab to win the Achievement Award in the Global Information Technology (IT) Championship, held in Vietnam in 2017.
