Deaf golfer Diksha Dagar credits father for success at Deaflympics
Diksha Dagar may not be able to hear the sound when her golf club hits the ball, but the 16-year-old golfer has made India proud by winning a silver medal at the Deaflympics in Turkey.
Diksha is among the 46 sportspersons participating in the games at Samsun. This is the first time that golf is a part of Deaflympics. She has been learning golf since the age of six. No one was ready to coach her so her dad became her coach and her strength.
Diksha and her brother Yogesh, who is also deaf, started accompanying her father, Colonel Narinder Dagar, to the golf course. Diksha also credits the Indian Army for supporting her.
