India’s para table tennis player Bhavinaben Patel said she never thought of reaching the finals of the Tokyo Paralympics and was only focused on giving her 100 per cent in every match. Bhavinaben continued her dream run in the ongoing Tokyo Games on Saturday as she stormed into the finals after defeating Zhang Miao of China 3-2 in her Class 4 match. “If I keep on performing like this, I will definitely win the gold medal. I never thought of reaching the finals and only concentrated on giving my 100 per cent and I did that only,” said Bhavinaben in a video by the Paralympic Committee of India (PCI).

“And when you give your 100 per cent you can win a medal. I am mentally ready for the finals and I just want to give my 100 per cent,” she added.

Bhavinaben created history by becoming the first Indian to enter the finals of the Paralympic Games table tennis competition.

Bhavinaben said she has proved that nothing is impossible after beating the Chinese player in the semi-finals.

“This is a big achievement as I have defeated a Chinese player, everyone says beating a Chinese player is impossible but I have proved nothing is impossible. Everything is possible if you want to do,” said Bhavinaben.

“I want to thank everyone, PCI, SAI, blind people association and TOPS as because of their support I’ve reached here,” she added.

The Indian paddler got off to a bad start as Zhang took the opening game 11-7. The Chinese paddler took five straight points in the first essay to move ahead.

Bhavinaben then levelled the match at 1-1 after winning the second game 11-7. The second game saw a neck to neck to fight with Bhavinaben leading the charge with a score of 8-6 before sealing the second essay 11-7.


She then came all guns blazing and started the third game on high as she took a lead of 5-0 in the essay. She then wrapped the game 11-4 to move closer to the finals.

In the next game, Zhang came back strongly and won by 11-9 and took the match into the decider. But Bhavinaben held her nerves to finish the game off in style.
