The Indian Para-Badminton contingent is an extremely strong one. We have world class athletes who own the stage at various International Events. At the Aditya Mehta Foundation, we have pledged to help them out wherever possible. The AMF on 28th October sponsored 6 such world class athletes to represent and make our country proud in Beijing, where they took part in the Asian Para-Badminton Championships held in between 22nd and 27th November, 2016.
The athletes are:-
- Prem Ale and Suresh Karki; ex Army men and Wheelchair Doubles partners.
- Sukant Kadam; World #14 in the singles category.
- Mark Dharmai; World #3 in the mixed doubles category.
- Anand Kumar and Manoj Sarkar; World #1 and #2 in the doubles category respectively.
Strengthening our relationship with Anand, Mark and Manoj, we are proud to bring Prem, Suresh and Sukant onto the AMF team of athletes. The Foundation has sponsored Rs.4Lakhs to cover all their expenses during their Asian Championship tour.
