India’s Bhavinaben Hasmukhbhai Patel might have won silver at Tokyo Paralympics but the para table tennis star isn’t satisfied with her performance and wants to win gold in 2024 Paris Paralympics. World number one Zhou Ying had overwhelmed Bhavinaben Patel in straight sets by 3-0 (11-7, 11-5, 11-6) in just 19 minutes to clinch the gold in Tokyo. With this silver medal, Bhavinaben had opened India’s account in the recently concluded Tokyo Paralympics, where the contingent ended up winning 19 medals. “It’s big as I have won a medal for my country. I’m sure many people will be inspired by my journey. People who want to do something in their life will get inspired by my journey,” Bhavinaben told ANI.

Further talking about the challenges she faced during her journey, Bhavinaben said, “There is no life if there are no problems. Challenges always make you strong, one must not lose hope. Many people supported me, especially SAI, PCI, Blind People Association who gave me the platform and I want to thank them all.”

“Also not to forget, the robotic support provided to me by TOPS. It helped me a lot to improve my game performance. The robot given to me was of advance quality, where I could play a variety of shots like spin, cut. It actually improved my game,” she added.

The table tennis star has set sights on upcoming events but wants to win gold at 2024 Paris Paralympics.

“I want to focus on Commonwealth, Asian Games and World Championship for now but my goal has increased. My next aim is to win Gold medal at the 2024 Paris Paralympics,” said Bhavinaben.
