Indian para-badminton shuttlers have been making their grandeur debut
at on International platform since past few months. They have been overflowing
by their laurels with their amazing show in almost all the tournaments
In the recently concluded Japan Para-Badminton International 2017,
Indian para shuttlers brought a big pride to the nation by winning eight
medals: two golds, three silvers and three bronze medals. They are proving
themselves that by every successive tournament, there would be an accession of
medals. The previous best was in June earlier this year at the Thailand International,
consisting of seven medals; two gold, three silver, and two bronze.
Parul Parmar and Manasi Joshi won gold medals defeating second seed

category and Helle Sofie Sagoy and Katrin Seibert, from Norway and Germany 23-21,

Mark Dhamai won two silver medals finishing as runner-up in the mixed
doubles SS 6 category along with Australia’s Kobie Donovan and also in the
men’s doubles with Hong Kong’s Chun Wong.

men’s singles with Suhas Yathiraj, where the duo finished third in the men's
doubles SL3-SL4 category.
