Bhubaneswar: As chief guest of this week’s episode, Chalo Odisha’s Instagram live show Wings From Home hosted world para badminton champion Pramod Bhagat.
The ace shuttler, Pramod Bhagat, had just won not one, but two Golds at the BWF Para World Championships – in the SL3 Men’s Singles and Doubles categories. He was already World No. 1 in both categories; and with his wins, undoubtedly marked himself as the favorite for the upcoming Tokyo Paralympics.
When asked about his mindset for the Paralympics, he responded saying: “What Saina did for badminton in 2012 [winning bronze at the London Olympics] is what I aim to do for Para-Badminton. I hope people tomorrow look at me and find the inspiration to venture into the sport.”
His expectations? “Definitely Gold,” he says. “I will make my dream come true. I will make my country’s dream come true.”
The prime motive of this show is to inspire people. Pramod told about his fitness, his challenge, his lows and how he survived from all of them. He signed off urging everyone to stay home and stay safe.
