While PV Sindhu Made Headlines, Manasi Joshi Quietly Won Her First Gold at BWF Para Badminton Championships

India had a world champion in Basel (Switzerland) even before the whole nation trained its attention on champion shuttler, P.V. Sindhu, taking on Japanese Nozomi Okuhara in the women’s singles final on Sunday.

For, 30-year-old Manasi Joshi, who incidentally is another trainee at Gopi Chand Academy, clinched the gold in women’s singles SL3 final defeating World No. 1 and compatriot Parul Parmar 21-12, 21-7 to pick her maiden title in Para World badminton championship at the same venue where the big guns like Sindhu, Kento Momota are all in action.

India claimed a total of 12 medals in the Para Badminton World Championships this year. But there hasn’t been a lot hue and allege about? Why no longer give credit ranking where its due?

Certainly, Sukant Kadam, who accomplished with bronze on the championship, might perhaps no longer help but tweet to Prime Minister Narendra Modi who had tweeted photos of himself with PV Sindhu.

Being the epitome of sportsmanship, Manasi Joshi had tweeted after Sindhu’s win:

People weren’t somewhat pleased. While some claimed that Indians have continuously been biased towards the differently abled, some entreated others to discover an even time Joshi’s victory the manner they did Sindhu’s. Have a look at what they had to relate:

We are hoping maybe next time, all athletes making India proud will discover the dignity and credit ranking they deserve.
