The whole nation is busy celebrating the historic victory of PV Sindhu by winning Gold at the World Championship. Now, we must not overlook Pramod Bhagat as he won his 2nd Gold in the BWF Para-Badminton World Championship. In the Men's doubles SL3-4 category, he already won a Gold. He defeated England's Daniel Bethell and won a Gold in Men's singles SL3 category. In the category, it was the third title for Pramod Bhagat.
Bhagat increased his winning record against the England athlete Bethell to 3-1 this season with 6-21, 21-14, 21-5 scoreline in the final that took part for almost an hour. After winning his 2nd gold, Bhagat said, 'I took time to find my rhythm and thus started slowly in the first game. But in the second game, I increased the pace and tried controlling the match. I have played Bethell many times, so knew it will be a tough match. I am happy to finish on the winning side and take my third singles gold.'
‘The only thing that crossed my mind after I lost the first game was that I need to make a comeback. The win here was important in terms of Tokyo2020 qualification points and also for my confidence,’ added Bhagat. PV Sindhu and Pramod Bhagat have proved their excellence with their gameplay as Indian Athletes at world championships.
In fact, SL3 category is intended for players having minor standing/lower limb impairment. On the other hand, SL4 is meant for the players having critical conditions of SL3. On the whole, India completed with 12 medals that include 3 Gold. The total number of medals gained by India is similar to the 2015 World Championships. Earlier, India had received 4 Gold and made it the best ever show.
