Narayan Ramdhani continues to excel on Canadian circuit
Guyana’s top male badminton player Narayan Ramdhani continues to make positive steps on his five-year badminton/academic scholarship in Canada.
Last weekend, the talented player won gold in the Under-23 Men’s Singles at the 2017 VRC Remembrance Day Open tournament at the Vancouver Racquets Club.
Playing out of ShuttleSport, Ramdhani, seeded number one in the tournament, defeated Zijian (John) Zhang 21-15, 21-7. He then went on to play and beat the number two seeded player Jarin Allan Davison of North Central Badminton Academy 25-23, 21-7.
In the first match against Davison, the game was set at 20-all and Narayan pulled through to win the first game 25-23 and went on to seal the match at 21-7.
The gold medal performance is Narayan’s best in Canada this season, following three bronze medals and a fifth place finish.
The Guyana Badminton Association is very pleased with his great achievement in just over one year in Scholarship Programme at ShuttleSport Badminton Academy. We do hope he will get the necessary support from the relevant sport authorities as he is definitely a strong candidate to make the Olympics one day with his continuous upwards achievements throughout the years,” the Guyana Badminton Association said.
Ramdhani next hopes to attend the 2017 Yonex K&D Graphics International Challenge in Orange County, California, from December 19-22.
