Indian para shuttling elites including World No. 1 Pramod Bhagat and World No. 3 Sukant Kadam are set to fly to Pero to undergo training under the Peru National Para Badminton team at the Videna National High-Performance Center in the capital city of Lima.
The international training trip to Peru is expected to aid the Indian shuttlers in learning about new styles and adapting different kinds of technique, as well as exchange ideas with the National Team of Peru.
At the recently concluded 2022 Brazil Para Badminton International in Sao Paulo, the Indian contingent secured a total of 28 medals, including eight gold, seven silver and 13 bronze. Pramod Bhagat clinched two bronze and Sukant Kadam bagged a men’s singles SL4 silver.
“I have had a very roller coaster start to 2022 and I want to focus and utilize the time between tournaments in improving my technique and skills,” Pramod, the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics gold medallist stated, “The Peru team is a strong upcoming team and it will be of great help to exchange new ideas and understand their thought process which will help me prepare better for the upcoming tournaments.”
“I wanted to focus on improving my movements and learning new techniques. I also want to get exposure to how the teams around the world are training so I can pick up the best parts and include it in my training,” said Kadam, who is preparing for three upcoming tournaments taking place within the next 45 days.
Derly Delgado, the Peru National Team trainer, is delighted with the idea of having two para badminton champions from India training together, as he feels it would help them in turn as well.
“This allows us to learn how they train in India. It will also benefit us and help us improve as they are as they are world and para-Olympic medallists,” said Delgado.
